PHIL6110: Advanced Topics in Philosophy of Science

The philosophy of science is concerned with the nature and limits of scientific knowledge. How can we explain the ability of the sciences to consistently produce powerful and reliable knowledge? Are there any fundamental differences between the physical, biological and social sciences? Philosophers increasingly recognise that different philosophical issues arise in different sciences, and in any particular year the course will focus on issues raised by one or more individual sciences such as quantum physics, evolutionary biology, genetics, ecology, mathematics, neuroscience, or economics.
