Abstract

ALVAREZ-ROJAS, Christian. SPIRITUAL SCIENTISM: THE WORK OF ARTURO ALDUNATE PHILIPS IN THE DISCUSSION ON SCIENCE AND DEVELOPMENT. Límite (Arica) [online]. 2020, vol.15, 4.  Epub Oct 29, 2020. ISSN 0718-1361.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0718-50652020000100204.

Scientism has been frequently pointed out as an ideology equivalent to modernity and colonialism. This article aims to study this concept under the approach of Latin American Thought, and define it as a device used to reinforce sets of broader ideas. For that purpose, I will explain the thought of Arturo Aldunate Phillips contained in his popular science work as a spiritual scientism, faced with the discussion about the role of science in the development in Chile and Latin America.

Keywords : Arturo Aldunate Philips; scientism; Latin American Thought; Science and Development; spirituality.
