The rejection of modern scientific judgements in favor of an irrational or superstitious
Practitioners of anti-science are hostile towards scientists
, and may believe that science is a social behavior where truth is relative. Postmodernism
and alternative medicine
are all examples of anti-science.
The term "anti-science" is attributed to Gerald Holton, a professor of physics and history at Harvard
, who wrote "Science and Anti-Science" in 1993.
