The problem of our times is not with philosophy or science as such. The problem is with the type of epistemology to gain knowledge that have been used by the ruling order of class societies, since the primitive times, up to now. The bankruptcy that philosophy and science face in modern times has its root in the prevalent epistemology (as the ruling idea) and there would be no end (so also of human tragedy) until those change. Modern and ruling monopoly capitalism, like medieval decadence of Europe, condemned epistemology and knowledge to the realm of thought alone and has turned the scientists and philosophers into priests engaged in endless and meaningless scholasticism as the preoccupation of their parasitic existence. Based on the status of positive knowledge of the world gained so far by humanity; the science of materialist dialectics can make this assertion with confidence.
