Using a comprehensive quotation from a book of Wladyslaw Krajewski a characteristic of moderate scientism (to be called scientism below) is given. That is the stance the authoress shares with Krajewski. She complements the characteristic presenting scientism as an approved by her 'naive trust in science'. In the main part of the paper she discusses, however, the limitations imposed by contemporary science on the traditional epistemological optimism of scientism.
