Great piece! Two thoughts: 1 If promissory materialism were our sole vehicle of explanation, it would eventually have to explain even ethics and morality as something being determined by how elementary particles behave. 2 What will happen in a century or two, I believe, is not the demise of philosophy or any other subject or orientation, but that science will merge with philosophy and spirituality. Which in my view is to be welcomed.
