Leerdoelen Students gain knowledge of central topics in epistemology and philosophy of science.
They will learn to analyse and construct arguments in a precise and rigorous fashion.
Omschrijving The course covers a range of topics in epistemology and philosophy of science. In the first half of the course, we look at some keys topics in epistemology through the lens of sceptical problems. We study Descartes, Hume, and Goodman’s sceptical arguments and responses to them; including discussions on epistemological methodology, the nature of knowledge, and the structure of justification. In the second half, we look at some key topics in philosophy of science, with a selection of topics such as scientific realism, explanation, causation, laws of nature, and values in science.
