PHILOSOPHY FOR SCIENCE - 3 PART EVENT

Venue: Boston University Sydney

Time: From 6.30pm

Part 1: February 17

Part 2: February 24

Part 3: March 2

Learning with STEM: What the WORLD Must be Like:  
 
Science used to be ‘Natural Philosophy’ until the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries saw a parting of ways. Science became increasingly empirical – performing experiments and recording findings – while Philosophy remained contemplative – pondering the principles of logic, knowledge, ethics and politics, and struggling to make sense of the human condition. Today, both disciplines can claim significant achievements for both new technologies and improved understanding, but they also trouble each other – and the result is unfortunate. 
 
The three-part workshop will examine this divide, exploring the nature of “understanding” and how we might go about answering the question even Einstein famously asked, “What is ‘reality’?
