Content

Although ignorance is the engine of science, turning general, philosophical wonder into a specific, well-defined research problem, is a very complex, demanding skill, that one can and should actually acquire. Building on insights from the history and philosophy of science, this course discusses and illustrates several methods to define and re(de)fine research problems stepwise, and invites students to reflect critically and creatively about the prerequisites, the powers and the limits of problem solving in both their own discipline and in interdisciplinary contexts.

Note: 

This course was previously titled Analytic Metaphysics. If students already completed Analytic Metaphysics, they are not expected to complete Philosophy of Science 3.
