Humanities 449: Philosophy of Science Curriculum Guide
As an alternative elective course to Ethics (HUMN 445), Philosophy of Science is concerned with the place and purpose of science in
the world and the effect of science on the human enterprise. It provides not only an understanding of the function of science, but also clarifies science's effect on our
society, through such things as the creation of technology and its implications; science’s effect on our
view of the non-physical world, including religion, the nature of consciousness (can computers think? Are
“souls” merely brain states?) and the origin of the universe; science’s limits and failings in its lofty
attempt to completely describe the universe; and the implications of the evolution and future of science. Philosophy of Science summarizes, analyzes, and evaluates the general principles of the scientific method and the
philosophical concerns surrounding the content and nature of scientific theories. Case studies and
examples serve as primary pedagogical tools to illustrate the general principles of the scientific method
and to enable students to examine the methods by which those principles operate in formulating
hypotheses and theories that shape and determine world views.
