Course Delivery

Students will be able to complete the course asynchronously, but will be asked to participate if they can in some synchronous elements that will be scheduled Wednesday 10:35 – 11:25.

This class engages one of the main questions of our modern world: what is science and how does it relate to the rest of modernity? It explores the rise of a “scientific” world view, the clashes over methodologies, the disputed meanings of technology and the oppositions between the social/cultural and the natural, introducing recent crises of rationality and its defence.
