For the last four centuries, scientists have aimed to provide us with an understanding of the world around us. By all appearances, science has made substantial progress during this time. But is this progress real or illusory? And if it is real, how has this progress been made? This four-week course will consider these important questions. Specific topics will include how scientists generate knowledge through observations, experiments, and simulations; scientific objectivity and failures of scientific objectivity; the self-correcting nature of the scientific community; the positive and negative influences that values can have on science; the relationship between science and religion; and the role of the public in guiding the scientific enterprise.

PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE의 최상위 리뷰
Although this was first first course done with this system I felt it was done extremely well. Interaction with other students was made simple.
A great introduction to the basis and the actual practice of science.
Help me to go back to my philosophy course as undergrad. This is a remind of critical thinking and how do you examine science and its contents. Great course
Great course. I learned a lot. Inevitably selective, but that¿s alright. Thank you.
