Reply to comments on science and the pursuit of wisdom

Philosophia 38 (4):667-690 (2010)
Abstract
In this article I reply to comments made by Agustin Vicente and Giridhari Lal Pandit on Science and the Pursuit of Wisdom (McHenry 2009 ). I criticize analytic philosophy, go on to expound the argument for the need for a revolution in academic inquiry so that the basic aim becomes wisdom and not just knowledge, defend aim-oriented empiricism, outline my solution to the human world/physical universe problem, and defend the thesis that free will is compatible with physicalism.
Keywords Against analytic philosophy  For aim-oriented empiricism  For free will compatibilism
