Science, philosophy and truth

In science there is contention because each practitioner believes they are dealing in truth, which is singular, not plural.  Therefore conflict between scientists when their findings disagrees becomes a possibility, for after all, only one can be right, right?

However, in philosophy there is no need for contention because philosophers realize they are dealing in descriptions of reality, and not reality itself, which is seems as outside our grasp in its entirety.
