People say that science is what will set us free. That science is what we need. But when they refer to “science” they speak about the hardcore exact science that wants to reproduce everything in a lab in order to believe them. But this is the problem! How can you reproduce your inner experiences, the things that actually make you who you are? Science tries to measure everything. But that is the problem! The important things in life, like love, altruism, consciouness, are not measurable. We think too much of science that we have forgotten that everything that makes us humans is beyond its reach…
Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
