Content
The course will review the main topics of scientific metaphysics, epistemology and ethics from the begining of the 20th century to today. Some of the topics that will be addressed are: scientific phenomena, observations, scientific experimentation, theoretical representation, explanation, causality, science as a social phenomenon, objectivity and realism, and, finally, the relation between science and society. 
Teaching methods
This course will be mostly based on traditional lessons. The main method will be the systematic comparison between approaches and positions. Because of the diversity of authors and approaches studied, the students will prepare lessons by carefully reading the suggested materials. Participation during discussions in class will also be essential. If possible, the lessons will be provided in person, if not in a comodal way.
Evaluation methods
The evaluation will take the form of a written exam.
