History and Science

Study History and Philosophy of Sciences at The University of Adelaide

Without science and its discoveries, modern life would be unrecognisable. In this minor you’ll explore: how science works, and how it came to be the way it is now. You’ll investigate how scientific knowledge is generated, develop your scientific literacy, and apply your understanding to practical issues arising when science is set in a human context.

Explore questions such as:

  • Is science objective?
  • How has the study of science changed over history?
  • Is science immoral?
  • Does modern science reflect reality?
  • Is science regarded differently by different cultures?
