Is Philosophy “less” relevant than Science?

The idea of a conflict between philosophy and science goes back centuries, and yes, to my first years of Philosophy school. And always, the arguments were the same. That is, either philosophy became more “ scientific, ‘ or philosophy would be irrelevant. I have always wondered; relevant for what? Now,  in this piece, a scientist, who is a celebrity in that portion of reality, make the less scientific remark about philosophy. Is that “scientific” comment irrelevant for philosophy? Well, the only thing I can say is that the article reminded me what I read more than once from Charles Peguy saying that philosophy does not go to philosophy classes. But, what about science? Science, in all its epistemological varieties, presupposes a philosophical starting point.

After reading this article, Why are so many smart people such idiots about philosophy? it seems to me; some people need to go philosophy 101. Otherwise, one may risk of behaving like a bull in a china shop. Philosophy can not be reduced a mere discourse. It is more than that; it is life,  a way of confronting the Mystery of reality
