HNRS 212 - Honors Philosophy of Science


(3 hours) Prerequisites: ENGL 112 and participation in the Honors Program. This course will survey the history of science and then inspect its foundations and the methods science uses to understand nature.  It will address falsifiability as a central tenet of science, the resolution of competing theories, and both the authority and limitations of science.  The course will also examine the tension that often exists between placing epistemological authority in a method and its results vs. a supreme being.  To this end, contemporary topics in cosmology, abiogenesis, and evolutionary theory will be discussed as they relate to the Christian faith.
