Nussbaum über Putnam

putnamPutnam knew physics like virtually nobody else in the field, and so he also knew that it was fatal to reduce philosophy to physics […] I remember a … course he taught at Harvard … entitled “Non-Scientific Knowledge.” It covered ethical knowledge, aesthetic knowledge, and religious knowledge, and Putnam showed the folly of imagining that physical reductionism could replace those normative subjects.
