Philosophy Wire: Global revolt against experts! (and the need for “non-experts”)


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2018-02-16]: Hawking warns us that “We are witnessing a global revolt against experts”. [1] In the beginning we were ignorant. After that some people became experts. And then required from other people to listen to them because they are "experts". But the new experts are not yet… experts. And they have no desire to listen to the old experts just because they are… experts. This is how science progresses. You despise people questioning you? Then you must accept questioning from everyone! You want to become an expert? Then remain "non-expert" in your whole life!
