Philosophy and science don’t mix. Or do they? What we nowadays call ‘science’ used to be part of ‘philosophy’. Both Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin saw their most famous works as treatises in natural philosophy. And today, the two are still closely connected. Our current worldview is strongly shaped by scientific thought. We look to science for both answers to our theoretical questions and solutions to our practical problems. The Master’s specialisation in Philosophy and Science analyses the relation of philosophy and science in terms of their historical development, as well as the current situation. Students will get a better understanding of the
evolution, the current status and the implications of the scientific worldview.
Key courses: Evolution of Body and Mind; Philosophical Issues; Science, Technology and the Human Condition; Evolution and the Mind; Bioethics for Life Scientists; Environmental Ethics.
Best preparatory Bachelor’s: Philosophy or other with a philosophical component of at least 60 EC.
