Abstract

The problem of the relation between scientic culture and pseudoscience is approached. Examples of distinguished scientists that incurred in pseudoscienc attitudes and some contemporary manifestations of pseudoscience in scientic circles are showed. The fact that scientic culture is a necessary but not a sufcient condition to avoid pseudoscientic attitudes is showed. The need of a scientic debate culture as part of the anti-pseudoscientic culture is argued.
