Scientism, though, comes in two basic flavors. The strong version of scientism declares that only science can give us knowledge. The weak version sees science as the best path to knowledge. Scientism tends to assume that (a) nature is all the reality there is and (b) science is the (only) means of obtaining knowledge.

Paul Copan, from Loving Wisdom, kindle location 1604
