What you'll learn on the course
History of Philosophy
The aim of History and Philosophy of Science is to understand science; how it works, its historical development and its function in modern society.
History and Philosophy of Science thus integrates philosophical, historical and sociological approaches to the study of science. It provides you with an insight into scientific methods and objectives without actually having to do science. You will gain analytical skills in evaluating scientific (and non-scientific) knowledge as well as a broad understanding of the historical development of science in its interactions with philosophy, religion and society.Careers
