This course is a general but comprehensive survey of the philosophical study of science and social implications of scientific understanding. It has the principle aim of addressing how we developed our scientific understanding of the world, what the understanding amounts to, what impacts it has on our understanding of ourselves and our place in the surrounding place, and what judgments might follow from this understanding.
