Enrique Moros. Pamplona, 18 June 2013.
Enrique Moros is graduate in Philosophy by the School of Philosophy and by the School Ecclesiastic of Philosophy of the University of Navarra, with award extraordinary of licentiate degree, doctor in Philosophy by the School Ecclesiastic of Philosophy of the University of Navarra, with award extraordinary of doctorate, and doctor by the School of Philosophy of the University of Navarra. He is currently a lecturer at the School Eclesiastic of Philosophy and Director of research at the same School.
Since Quine's critique of the distinction between a priori and a posteriori, what he called naturalised epistemology became widespread: the project of substituting Philosophy for the natural sciences. Men have only one reason and the way it works well, as experience shows, is the way it does in the natural sciences. We must therefore elaborate all knowledge as a continuum of natural science. This /desideratum/ is especially present in the so-called neurosciences. But is it possible to fulfil this goal? Is there any internal limit to natural science that prevents its universalisation? In a more positive formulation, what do scientists need that natural science does not provide? And who should be entrusted with the task of meeting human needs? What is the role of human reason in this task?
