Hi mr. Grayling. First I would like to thank you for your Philosophical Logic. That book introduced me to the wonderful world of what is broadly called analytic philosophy, and I still keep it and treasure it to this very day. My question is this: what is your take on what has been termed "scientism", the thought that philosophy can't contribute to any significant theoretic understanding of the world? Is this logical positivism all over again? I suspect many mathematicians and logicians won't be sympathetic to such brute naturalism. Any thoughts?
