Standpoint War

War as a crisis of rationality

Machine trans­la­tion

Russian pro­pa­gan­da claims that NATO is at war with Russia in Ukraine. «No, this is a war of the archa­ic with the future, and in this war the cri­sis of ratio­nal thought has man­i­fest­ed itself with all its acute­ness,» philoso­phers argue. Has sci­ence, as the pin­na­cle of ratio­nal thought, lost in this war? No, on the con­trary, sci­ence is help­ing to resist the archa­ic, explains Eugene Koonin, Senior Investigator at the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, in episode 5 of the pod­cast «Invasion: Science at War».
