ollowing up on our highly successful 'Introduction to Philosophy' (over 100,000 people from around the world signed up), we have now developed a new MOOC: Philosophy and The Sciences.
This free, 7 week, online course has been developed in collaboration with 11 academics spanning a wide range of disciplines across the University including Linguistics, Psychology, Astronomy, the Institute for Adaptive & Neural Computation, and the Institute for Perception, Action & Behaviour to create a truly unique interdisciplinary course.
Every week a philosopher and a scientist will giude your through a wide-array of topics ranging from philosophy of cosmology, to philosophy of cognitive sciences. We will address questions such as:
- What is the origin of our universe?
- What are dark matter and dark energy?
- What is our role in the universe as human agents capable of knowledge?
- What makes us intelligent cognitive agents seemingly endowed with consciousness?
