|190-1||Proseminar: History and Philosophy of Science||Primus||M 1-4||Moses 234|
This course is designed for students who want to learn about the development of modern science as well as engage directly with some broader philosophical questions the historical texts raise, questions including: What kind of knowledge does science provide? How do experiments provide evidence for theories? Is there a scientific method? What is special about scientific explanation?
This seminar is intended for philosophy majors who have had at least two philosophy courses. In special cases, however, permission to take the seminar may be granted by the instructor.
