The God of Scientism
Roman Ormandy

“This tradition goes back to Plato, but it was ignited by Descartes, Newton, and Locke and reignited by 20th century dualists such as Quine, Von Neumann, Noam Chomsky, Richard Dawkins, and Stephen Hawking.”

I understand how Plato, Descartes, Newton, Locke, and possibly even Von Neumann could be considered dualists. But how on earth could someone like Richard Dawkins or Stephen Hawking be considered a dualist? I’m pretty sure they are materialists/physicalists, like Daniel Dennett, who argues at length in Consciousness Explained against falling into the seductive trap of Cartesian dualism.
