Tutor: David Worrall BA(Hons), MA(Lond)Go to all Courses
Science aims to get ever closer to the “truth”, but are there areas where this subject will always be incomplete? How do we differentiate between science, non-science and pseudo-science? This course will examine the philosophical theories that attempt to provide the guiding principles of scientific practice.
