Turf Wars & Kicking a Stone

March 17, 2010

Massimo Pigliucci accuses Myers, Coyne and Dawkins of failing to appreciate the difference between philosophical & methodological naturalism but in fact it is Pigliucci that fails to appreciate their disdain for such a distinction (outside the pages of philosophy articles).

Most non-philosophers accept Samuel Johnson’s refutation of
Berkely. I look forward to the day when the same is true of Coyne rebuking theistic casuistry.

Does Pigliucci actually suggest Coyne takes Last Thursdayism seriously? Surely there are better ways of defending your turf.
