Weltanschauung, Philosophie und Naturwissenschaft im 19. by Kurt Bayertz,Myriam Gerhard,Walter Jaeschke

By Kurt Bayertz,Myriam Gerhard,Walter Jaeschke

In diesem Streit - ausgelöst durch Emil Du Bois-Reymonds Schrift Über die Grenzen des Naturerkennens (1872) - ging es nicht mehr um die Frage des Vorrangs der Naturwissenschaften vor Philosophie und faith, sondern um die Grenzen, die auch dem materialistisch-darwinistischen Weltanschauungsreformprogramm gesetzt sind. Naturwissenschaft kann beschreiben und erklären, was once der Fall ist - und hier kann sie unbeschränkt fortschreiten; aber kann sie auch Normen setzen, eine Ethik - und damit: ein vollständiges Weltbild - begründen? An diesem Punkt stößt sie nach Du Bois-Reymond auf eine unüberwindliche Schranke.
Die Frage ist auch heute nicht geklärt.

Die heute vorherrschende Meinung, nur die Naturwissenschaften seien in der Lage, uns das richtige Weltbild zu geben, bedarf der Korrektur. Die Beiträge dieser Bände zeigen, daß der Diskurs, in dessen Verlauf den Naturwissenschaften im 19. Jahrhundert diese Rolle zugesprochen wurde, sich nicht auf Erkenntnisse stützen kann - sondern auf Fehleinschätzungen darüber beruht, was once Naturwissenschaft leistet.
