PHIL 385 - 01 Philosophy of Science - T - R - - - 1330 - 1510 MHC 208
CRN: 42689 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Peter M. Distelzweig What is the relation between philosophy and science? On the one hand, the discoveries by scientists have often been inspired by philosophical ideas. On the other hand, scientific achievements often pose deep conceptual questions to philosophers. The connection between these disciplines is thus so close that it becomes difficult to find a sharp border between them. Students in this course will explore central topics in the philosophy of science, including the distinctions between science, non-science, and pseudo- science, the nature of scientific theories, models, and explanations, the role of scientific experimentation, and the implications of scientific change. In this course students will write a research paper on a specialized topic at the interface of general philosophy of science and a particular scientific discipline of the student's choosing. The primary audience for the course includes (a) philosophy majors or minors who wonder about the nature, scope, and philosophical import of the sciences and (b) philosophically-minded science, math, or engineering majors and minors.
