Enlightenment Defended
Politics • Spirituality/Belief • Culture
Enlightenment Defended will repel the dark nihilism of “post-truth”, woke culture, identity politics, and political correctness. It will catalyse the bright flame of the enlightenment —liberty, reason and progress.

Enlightenment Defended will create an open realm of vigorous philosophical debate through animation, documentaries, poetry, humour, music and myth. People are many-sided in both apprehension and enjoyment.

Explaining Infinite Growth. Part I.

The enlightenment is predicated on the possibility of unending growth. How should we explain the possibility of infinite growth?

This is something that has fascinated me for decades, beginning with my conversations with the late Julian Simon, an outstanding economist and author of the well-known The Ultimate Resource. I published an article in 1996 in the Critical Rationalist in which I attempted to explain the potential for infinite growth from the unfathomable content of our scientific theories. However, there is a technical problem with any such approach, possibly including David Deutsch's attempt expounded in his book The Beginning of Infinity. The difficulty was exposed by my teacher David Miller, the logician and philosopher of science and close associate of Karl Popper, in the same journal in reply to my paper.
