"The purpose of this blog is therefore to rehearse questions and ideas concerning the historical contingency of ‘scientific naturalism‘ and other standards of Western rationality – particularly those which academics are not accustomed let alone encouraged to critically reflect upon, even though they have powerfully shaped individual and collective identities."
Deals with the history of science and magic through the ages and seeks to change our historiographic understanding of the "forbidden" history of science. Includes a link to the YouTube channel and a reading list of books on the topic of scientific naturalism (or natural magic).
