Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Aims and Content
The aim of this course is to introduce students to the wide-ranging problems and controversies in the philosophy of science and in particular in the logic of history. Although the course is
mainly analytical its general approach is historical as well, and tries to provide an understanding of how problems and tentative solutions have developed in that field.
Objectives: Diligent students will learn to make sense of and evaluate the historical background, achievements, main criticisms and later developments of those controversies which implicitly cover much ground in temporary discussions.
Methods
Teaching consists in one unbroken 90-minute lecture. Students are required to contribute in a lively manner to discussions at all classes and to pass one final exam at the end of term.
