The Many Inadequate Justifications of Methodological Naturalism

Organon F, Vol. 26, No. 1, 2019: 5-24

In this paper, I argue that attempted justifications of methodological naturalism as a prerequisite of scientific inquiry fail. As a practice, it functions not to further scientific investigation, but rather to impose an explanatory straitjacket. 

Methodological naturalism cannot be adequately defended by describing something called the scientific method then arguing that it cannot be applied to the supernatural.
Paul Draper
