Skip select a country or region The course:  Philosophy of science involves more than just the study of the philosophical problems inherent in the nature and methodology of scientific reasoning, which are topics we will explore in this course; it also involves the study of the conceptual foundations, presuppositions, and implications of the theories that form the core framework by which the physical world is understood by the natural sciences in general. Whatever one might say of this framework, in the practice of modern science, it is understood to be physically causal, conceptually logical, and mathematically describable--yet impossible to reduce fully to any of these features. This provides an important clue to their relationship in both the philosophy and practice of modern science, and is a central topic in this course.
