Scientism, Definition and Potential.

Piano1, you write:  QUOTE http://www.pbs.org/faithandreason/gengloss/sciism-body.html   Scientism claims that science alone can render truth about the world and reality. UNQUOTE

There are probably several non-identical definitions of scientism. Proper definitions are expected to be identical, but I like mine best and I think it is the most identical…

As a scientism-practicing person I do not think "that science alone can render truth about the world and reality". "Truths" of the "world" and of "reality" are vaguely loaded blurred matters to me.

You also write: "So what can your scientism do for world peace?"

I am convinced/hopeful that application of my (most identical) scientism, i.e. "a doctrine and method characteristic of scientists, and the proposition that scientific doctrine and methods of studying natural sciences should be used in all areas of investigation and conduct" to social-cultural-civil affairs would be welcome by most rational humans seeking an efficient practical, as fair as possible, civic framework.
