Philosophy for Science 1: What the World Must Be Like

Science is a ‘methodology’ - a particular way of observing, describing and explaining – a way of addressing the one BIG question: “What must the world be like, that it produce the phenomena we observe?” At first blush, this question seems simple enough; but it turns out to be fiendishly difficult to answer. This 3 part course is an attempt to construct a clearer, more coherent conceptual framework for making sense of the physical world. Part 1 - What the World Must Be Like: We... [More]

Mention physics and we think of quarks and black holes, but its impacts are much closer to home. Many of the Big Questions of concern to humanity have either been answered by science, or reformulated in modern terms. Where did the universe come from, and what is its ultimate fate? What is rocket science, and how do we get around the solar system? What is the mind, and do we have freewill or is everything determined?

Energy: Uses, Sources, and Environmental Impacts

Energy is central to our existence, from the food we eat to the comforts of our homes, our transport, the jobs we do and the technologies we enjoy. Yet our ever increasing thirst for energy has placed many strains on both the environment and the planet’s resources. We examine how we use energy, and how we supply it. What are the laws which govern energy efficiency? How do fossil fuels impact on the environment? What are the prospects for renewable energy sources? And Does nuclear... [More]
