Description
REALISM
What, if anything, makes scientific claims true or false? Is scientific language about anything? If it is, can we know which scientific claims are true, or can we arrange our beliefs to converge towards the truth? If not, what purpose can the enterprise of science serve? This seminar will examine these and related questions.
