Bad in that he seems to think that God and mysticism have some place in a study of the philosophy of science.
More modern works by Popper or Kuhn might be a better reading choice?
I read in a mathematics book ( attributed to Pascal) that there are three aspects to the seeking of truth:
1) existence ( finding of a concept)
2) factualization ( proof)
3) falsification ( that the negative to the statement is false) Joad is OK on the first two, but fails on the last.
A lot of the pretensions of science and mathematics are
being questioned by both the left and right.
Global warming and it's causes have made science
a target of attack. Major figures in the modern advance of science
have been openly attacked by even other scientists.
None of this is new, but the result is that we need to renew our
concepts of science and what it means and what it doesn't mean.
