Few would dispute the importance of science in contemporary society. Yet there are differing ideas about what science is, what it can do and whether it can be trusted. This course will discuss the following questions: What is science? How does it progress/evolve/work? How is science similar to and/or different from other disciplines? What is the origin and extent of the intellectual divide between the science community and humanities? (And does it matter?). Enrollment Limit: 14.
