PHIL 360 - Philosophy of Science


Introduction to the philosophy of science, addressing such questions as: What are the methods distinctive of science? Are scientific methods more likely to lead to true theories than, say, crystal-ball-gazing? When scientists choose between rival theories, is the choice wholly rational or partly a matter of subjective taste? Are our best scientific theories approximately true descriptions of reality or merely instruments for making predictions?
