Episode 12: Anarchism Is...Science
Science is real! At least that's what my neighbor's sign says. But what does it mean to claim that science is real? Aren't lots of things real?
In this episode, I argue that "science is real" is a claim that science isn't just real, it has access to a higher reality, one that nonscientists aren't allowed to argue with. This means science isn't just real, it's the boss. Which isn't very anarchist.
Luckily for us, though, scientists and the scientific process don't actually work this way. How does science work? Anarchism.
