Why do scientists seem to dislike philosophy so much? (For example Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Hawking and Lawrence Krauss). Even Dawkins seems to have joined the club (which is odd given he now seems to spend most of his time making what seem to me to be fairly clearly philosophical arguments).
Is it simply that they are using different definitions of the word than philosophy professors?
Are they generally attacking just bad philosophy and taking that unrepresentative sample?
Do they mean philosophy as in "that thing taught in philosophy departments" or some more abstract notion about the relations of ideas?
I really don't understand what their problem is with philosophy (and why they don't define their terms)...
