This course is designed to introduce students to fundamental questions in philosophy of science. We will cover both descriptive issues such as how scientific theories become "facts," and normative questions that ask how we ought to structure scientific inquiry. We will cover a range of scientific disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and even paleontology. We'll also cover disciplines that are more or less controversial as "sciences," such as economics, mathematics, medicine, and engineering.
