Nancy Pearcey’s latest book


Review writes: Kant proposed that rational man can only obtain knowledge on things that he can see, feel, taste or touch. He asserted that human reason is incapable of knowing anything beyond the natural world. In other words, humans cannot obtain knowledge about anything that cannot be determined through empirical science. It is from these philosophical ideas that science gained the monopoly on knowledge that it held during much of the twentieth century. As Pearcey explains, “Many thinkers were so impressed by the scientific revolution that they began to regard science as the sole source of truth.”
