We live in an age of “promissory materialism”


As it is in science and the theory of evolution, so it is in commerce and, particularly, finance…

There has been a regrettable tendency of many scientists to claim that science is so powerful and all pervasive that in the not too distant future it will provide an explanation in principle for all phenomena in the world of nature, including man, even of human consciousness in all of its manifestations. [Karl] Popper has labeled this claim as promissory materialism, which is extravagant and unfulfillable.

Sir John Eccles
