Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course aims at providing the students with a critical understanding of the philosophical foundations of science and technology. But what is the relation between philosophy and science? On the one hand, the discoveries by scientists are often inspired by philosophical ideas. On the other hand, scientific achievements and technological advancements pose deep conceptual questions to philosophers. The connection between these disciplines is thus so tied that it becomes difficult to even draw a border between them. This course explores such a connection through the study of important episodes in the history of science. Outstanding issues of philosophy of science and technology, such as scientific progress, the method of science and the confirmation of theories and laws, will be addressed. Moreover, a particular focus will be devoted to philosophical questions concerning the nature of space as they emerge in the foundations of science, especially in relation to the famous debate between Leibniz and Newton.

Moreover, a particular focus will be devoted to philosophical questions concerning the nature of space as they emerge in the foundations of science, especially in relation to the famous debate between Leibniz and Newton. Finally, in the context of philosophy of technology, we will explore epistemic tools that are used to draw scientifically-informed inferences, such as computer simulations and thought experiments.

Here's below a list of the main topics:

- Method of s ience

- Demarcation between science and pseudo-science

- Confirmation

- Scientific Progress

- Philosophy of Space: Absolutism vs Relationism

- Scientific Reasoning

- Philosophy of Technology
