STF3042 - HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE/SEJARAH DAN FALSAFAH SAINS

Last modified by Adam Francis on 2015/04/16 15:03

COURSE TITLE

HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE (Sejarah dan Falsafah Sains)

COURSE CODE

STF3042

SYNOPSIS

Modern culture is a culture of science. Modern science is the outcome of a historical process of 2,500 years. In this course, we investigate how knowledge, theoretical, technological and medical acquired the characteristics of modern science: the social structure, contents, values and methods. We will look at some primary chapters of this process, from antiquity to the end of the seventeenth century, and try to understand their implications to understanding contemporary science in its culture. This course critically examines the most important attempts to define the 'scientific method', to draw a line dividing science from non-science, and to justify the high status and reliability generally accorded to scientific knowledge.

(Kebudayaan sains merupakan kebudayaan zaman moden. Sains moden adalah hasilan daripada proses sejarah sepanjang 2,500 tahun. Di dalam kursus ini kami akan meneroka bagaimana pengetahuan-teori, teknologi dan perubatan menerap budaya sains moden. Kursus ini akan meneliti aspek "kaedah saintifik", membahagikan antara sains dan bukan-sains, dan menjustifikasikan status tinggi kepada pengetahuan sains.)
