PHIL 2810

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020. Courses of Study 2020-2021 is scheduled to publish late June.

We will look at some central questions about the nature of scientific theory and practice. What makes a discipline a science? Does science discover the objective truth about the world? How, and why, do scientific theories change over time? To what extent do observation and experiment determine which theories we accept? What is a good scientific explanation? What are laws of nature? Does physics have a special status compared to other sciences?

When Offered Spring.
