CEPPA Talk (in person) – Eric Martin (Baylor)

May 4, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Location: Edgecliffe G03

Title: Scientism and Humanities Education

Abstract: In this talk I discuss a pedagogical implication of scientism. Because scientism elevates science and derogates what is deemed non-scientific, the arts and humanities become, on such a view, less valuable parts of university curricula. I survey some of the current data on declining study of the humanities and explain how scientism may contribute to a trend disparaging the arts and humanities, suggesting some problems with this view.
