JR/SR SEMINAR FOR HPS MAJORS
The goal of this seminar (HPS 1702) will be to introduce you to the cutting-edge research in history and philosophy of science. The seminar is designed to complement the knowledge you have acquired about the classic debates in history and philosophy of science. We will focus on the recent debates in contemporary philosophy of science and on some debates in the history of science that are relevant for philosophy. We will read articles that have been published in the last ten years in the major philosophy of science and history of science journals. We will also read some classic papers that provide a background for the current debates.
