PHIL 22200 - Scientific Revolutions and Methodology

Course Credit: 1
The traditional view of scientific method, with its emphasis on observation, prediction, falsification, and hypothesis forming, is often thought to be a model of rationality. Yet there have been several conceptual revolutions in science that seem to challenge this view. This course will critically evaluate the scientific method, including empiricist, post-modern, and feminist critiques. [AH]
