"Theoretical physics...good epistemology?" poll
How much epistemological relevance is there in theoretical physics being that it favors philosophy more than empirical science?
I am not the only one who has raised this question...so has Steven Weinberg who clearly states that theoretical physics is more philosophy than science with specific reference to "string theory" and an abandonment of the basic tenants of the scientific method and a bona fide source of knowledge.
