On this course you’ll engage with questions that have shaped the modern world.As well as fundamental questions about knowledge, language, reality and moral and political life, you’ll learn about the ways in scientific theories and methods have developed over the years and the roles that science, technology and medicine play in society today.Core modules introduce you to key approaches, thinkers and methods in each subject. You’ll learn to construct and defend effective arguments and think about the nature of scientific evidence and ideas.
