This course will present core subject areas of analytical philosophy of science. No in-depth knowledge of any science is presupposed for this course, nor is mathematics beyond basic algebra. The bulk of the course is concerned with ‘general’ philosophy of science rather than with the philosophies of specific sciences (such as the philosophy of quantum mechanics or Darwinian evolution). There will, however, be two lectures on the philosophies of the special sciences, one on the philosophy of medicine and one on the philosophy of climate science, at the end of the course in order to convey the main idea of what a philosophy of a special science amounts to.
