Spring Term 2021 Science vs. Pseudoscience - 3125 - PHIL 330

Prerequisites/Notes: One course in philosophy, junior standing, or consent of instructor

Catalog Description : We will examine some important philosophical questions surrounding science. They will include (1) What is a science; and what is the relation between different sciences? (2) What is it to explain a phenomenon or confirm a hypothesis? (3) Do the explanatory posits of a science—such as quarks and strings—actually exist? (4) Are there scientific laws? We will explore some of the more plausible answers to such questions. Readings will include selections from a variety of contemporary and 20th century philosophical texts.
