upon and describe the early philosophical roots of modern 


science. This is significant in itself. For whilst scientists such 


as Stephen Hawking may dismiss philosophy and theology 



out of hand as outmoded pre- or pseudo-scientific 


approaches to knowledge, they forget that modern science 


had its roots in ‘natural philosophy’ - and that its earliest 



pioneers did not call themselves ‘scientists’ but ‘natural 


philosophers’. It is high time then, to rescue Philosophy, the 


mother of Science, from the arrogance of its child. For even a 



cursory examination of the language used by leading 


physicists such as himself reveals the most imprecise use of 


language, the grossest of logical contradictions - and the 


crassest forms of pseudo-philosophising.
