65. Philosophy Of Science, By Roger Jones
philosophy of science, Introduction to Philosophy since the Enlightenmentby Roger Jones. philosophy of science. Science vs. Religion
Philosophy of science
Science vs. Religion, from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment
The shift in the western mind from the medieval to the modern was underpinned by the growth of science. However a two hundred year long intellectual battle was to take place between the established Church and the emerging empiricism, before the Enlightenment could flourish. Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543) challenged the view that the Earth was at the centre of the universe. He suggested that the observational evidence would be better explained by the theory that the earth orbited the sun. Francis Bacon (1561-1626) argued for the use of experiment rather than deduction as a means to increase knowledge. Johannes Kepler's (1571-1630) employment of observation and mathematics enabled him to supplant the Pythagorean (ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras' (c. 530 BC)) theories of perfect heavenly spheres by showing how planets moved in ellipses. Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was placed under house arrest for agreeing with Copernicus. Despite resistance from the religious authorities, the success of science in explaining and predicting the natural world could not be ignored. René Descartes (1596-1650) thought he had found a rational foundation for science based on his arguments for his own existence and the existence of god. God, he argued, would not deceive our senses. This felicitous reconciliation between Cartesian rationalism, a belief in God and the support for empiricism did not survive for long.

Science is a way of knowing that depends on verifiable evidence and solid logic. The philosophy of science was created by humans who wished to understand their world and themselves according to the laws of nature. Rather than appealing to God or other mystical entities for explanations, scientists try to find out what is going on by exploiting their own powers of discovery and rational thought. This chapter briefly describes how the philosophy of science came to be, what it is, and what it isn't. This page is part of the 'The Philosophy of Science' chapter from the book,

68. Committee For Philosophy And The Sciences
(CPaS replaces two previous committees, the Committee for the Historyand philosophy of science, and the Committee for Cognitive Studies.
The Committee for Philosophy and the Sciences (CPaS) is a research and teaching unit of the Department of Philosophy. (CPaS replaces two previous committees, the Committee for the History and Philosophy of Science, and the Committee for Cognitive Studies. Students interested in history of technology should contact Professor Robert Friedel of the Department of History. CPaS administers an interdisciplinary graduate specialization leading to an MA or PhD degree in philosophy for students who are interested in pursuing philosophically informed foundational research in an area of science, and will be of particular interest to students who already have a substantial background in that science. Relevant sciences include physics, biology, neuroscience psychology, computer science, artificial intelligence, and linguistics, all of which are strongly represented on campus. There are two tracks, with different course requirements: a philosophy of science track and a cognitive studies track. CPaS has strong links to science departments on campus, including Physics and Biology, and also to the recently developed graduate programs in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) and Behavior, Evolution, Ecology and Systematics (BEES), as well as to the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). In addition,students have available the research facilities of several area universities, research institutes, and specialized libraries. Of particular interest to CPaS students are the resources of the Center for the History of Physics at the American Institute of Physics in College Park, the Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian Libraries. All are easily accessible by rapid transit.

Scientific Method and Philosophy of Science
(Sat Sep 29 23:26:27 2001) Philosophy of science these days seems largely concerned with questions of method, justification and reliability - what do scientists do (and are they all doing the same thing? are they doing what they think they're doing?), and does it work, and if so why, and what exactly does it produce? There are other issues, too, like, do scientific theories really tell us about the world, or just give us tools for making predictions (and is there a difference there?). The whole reductionism emergence squabble falls under this discipline, too. But (so far as an outsider can judge), method is where most of the debate is these days. Of course, most scientists proceed in serene indifference to debates in methodology, and indeed all other aspects of the philosophy of science. What Medawar wrote thirty years ago and more is still true today: If the purpose of scientific methodology is to prescribe or expound a system of enquiry or even a code of practice for scientific behavior, then scientists seem to be able to get on very well without it. Most scientists receive no tuition in scientific method, but those who have been instructed perform no better as scientists than those who have not. Of what other branch of learning can it be said that it gives its proficients no advantage; that it need not be taught or, if taught, need not be learned? (Actually

conclusion to chapter Fate of the Comintern
This book attempts to give a historical account of the development of marxism as a philosophy of science as well as a philosophical account of the issues involved. It encompasses the 1st 100 years of the existence of marxism, beginning with the mid-1840s when the philosophical ideas of Marx and Engels began to emerge in mature form, and ending with the mid-1940s with the dissolution of the Comintern and the end of WW2. It deals with both the mainstream of the marxist tradition in the development of dialectical materialism as a philosophy of science and with diverging currents advocating alternative philosophical positions. It shows the marxist tradition to be far more complex and differentiated than is usually imagined, characterised by sharp and lively controversies for contending paths of development at every step of the way.
