This course was previously titled General Philosophy of Science. If students already completed General Philosophy of Science, they don't have to complete Philosophy of Science.

Content

The nature of science and scientific methods; analyzing core concepts of science (theory, model, confirmation, verification, information, falsification, observation, explanation, experiment, evidence); introduction to philosophical debates concerning whether science tells us the truth about reality; social components of science; metaphysical presuppositions that make scientific inquiry possible; basic elements from logic and epistemology. In two tutor meetings, additional auxiliary lectures will be provided about logic and epistemology (especially intended for Double Degree students).
