Philosophy of Science
About The Course
This course will explore the various ways philosophers of science have discussed the nature of scientific theories, their justifications, and their metaphysical underpinnings from the lens of Islam. It will also help explain how these discussions can impact assessment of scientific theories in relation to Islamic beliefs.
The course will take you through the philosophical issues of Islam and science, like demarcation problem, methodological naturalism, value and objectivity, underdetermination, various models of explanation, laws of nature, scientific realism, scientism, science and metaphysics, and much more.
Science has made a significant impact on religious traditions, which has led to several developments in the field of Islam and science. This course will focus on the philosophical discussions of science that can help Muslims as they navigate their way in the interface of Islam and science.
