PSHI 320 - History&Philosophy of Science


Unit(s): 3

Course Description: What is science? What make science work well - or not? To understand these issues we will examine (1) how science helps us to create a conceptual understanding of the world around us, and (2) how the scientific approach has developed throughout the ages. We will delve into a brief history of science and take a look at the great scientific discoveries of the past 500 years. We will also discuss the nature of scientific explanation, how the scientific methods works, and the sometimes complex and always fascinating relationship between evidence and hypothesis. Finally, we will take a look at some of the challenges facing science today, from physics to genetic engineering.
