End of science?

Unscientific American and the End of Science

I don’t believe in the ‘end of science’ either. But the phrase itself has a spectrum of meanings, and, from one point of view, science reaches the limits of its method, beyond which it cannot go. For good Kantian reasons.
At that point the creation of a metaphyiscal science begins to hide this outcome, e.g. Darwinism is made to be the solution to all metaphysical issues.
