with physicalism i mean a form of reductionism that is ideológical instead of metodological, in the sense that despise anything beyond the laws of physics. Physicalists despise chemistry and biology not to mention other disciplines.


An scientist can use reductionism in a metodological way, for example, we can use quantum nechanics to better understand some chemical reactions. or we can use brain scanning or cognitive sciences to help in the study of the mind. What is ideológical is to deny or despise anything above your favorite discipline.

You're just making this stuff up (because you despise physicists?); attributing all petty ideologies to somebody called "physicalists" without naming and quoting a single one.
