PHI 300 Philosophy of Science

Is science a good method for investigating the world, and if so, what makes it so good? Are there scientific laws? Are all sciences reducible to physics or is there value in sociology, psychology, biology, and the other special sciences? Is science objective? Value-free? What is or should be the relationship between science and society? How has feminist philosophy of science impacted both philosophy and science? These and other questions will be considered through an historical investigation of philosophy of science from logical positivism to contemporary approaches.
