"Science Cannot Stop With Science": Maurice Blondel and the Sciences

From: Journal of the History of Ideas
Volume 69, Number 2, April 2008
pp. 269-292 | 10.1353/jhi.2008.0015



Maurice Blondel, best known for his 1893 work on Action, offers a window on the world of philosophers who negotiated the scientific disciplines at the turn of the twentieth century. During this amazing era of discoveries, Blondel encouraged the bold, encyclopedic spirit of science as well as the new standards coming into use for accumulating and judging observational evidence. However, he warned of reductionism, determinism, and phenomenism, trends which could be avoided or corrected if the nature and scope of science were broadened. Such a broadening would introduce a more integrated and holistic understanding of the scientific quest.
