PHIL 3093 - History of Science


3 credits

[Meets the Core Curriculum Writing Practice Requirement] This course examines how science has influenced the advancement of the modern world as well as demonstrating how the progression of the modern world has influenced the growth of different branches of science. Rather than focusing on the discovery of science, the class will focus on the contextualization and production of science as part of the historical narrative, with an additional focus on the philosophical underpinnings of the scientific discipline. As part of this contextualization, students will delve into themes of class, ethnicity, gender, nationality, religion and race as they seek to understand the historical production of science, rather than what science has produced. (Same as HIST 3093)
