Re: “To the Editor: Cleese’s claims completely un-scientific,” Opinion, April 23.
In this letter criticizing remarks about precognition made by John Cleese at the Hotel School, the author reveals that he misunderstands the nature of science. Science is a method of inquiry that enables one to investigate empirical claims. Even if some of those claims seem unlikely to be true on a priori grounds, that does not thereby render their investigation pseudo-science.
