Philosophy of Science: An Introduction
Domain: A1 Knowledge base

These two seminars attempt to distil key contemporary issues in the philosophy of science into a basic introduction. Philosophy of science is concerned with what science is, how it works, and why scientific knowledge is different from other types of knowledge. Some of the central questions (which are of interest not just to philosophers but to scientists as well) are:
* what is science?
* what is knowledge?
* why should science be so highly valued / privileged?
* what distinguishes science from pseudo-science?
* what is the ‘scientific community’ and how does it influence science?
* how does science progress? Is there a scientific “method”?
The aim of these seminars is to identify what science is and how in the natural sciences information gathering is synthesised to create knowledge. The sessions will argue that science is special but along the way it will show how other people view science differently.
