Batchelor’s Buddhism:  Not Scientism, but an Exercise in Humanist Psychology

http://www.stephenbatchelor.org/psychology.htm

I expected I was going to find this. It seems Batchelor’s tie to the scientistic establishment isn’t as pronounced as people would think.

From this piece here, his Buddhism appears to be more of an attempt to frame Buddhist tradition within the scope of Psychological study.  In other words it’s a humanist psychological enterprise.

That’s not scientism; that’s not even giving a pass to scientism.
