For tens of thousands of years our ancestors understood the world through myths, and the pace of change was glacial. The rise of scientific understanding transformed the world within a few centuries. Why? Physicist David Deutsch proposes a subtle answer.


One thought on “A new way to explain explanation

  1. Two Logical Fallacies David Deutsch’s reasoning commits in this clip are Genetic Fallacy and Compositional Fallacy.

    Which ancestors? Which Myths? And were those myths accepted by all XXX-ancestors?
    Has not science being from tens of thousands? Are some things myths hiding in Science Umbrella : e.g. Macro-Evolution the Darwinian Myth?

    What is his definition of Myth? And what is his definition of Science? All this left me wondering?
