Principales revisiones sobre Philosophy and the Sciences: Introduction to the Philosophy of Physical Sciences

por DLNov 27th 2017

Many of the mathematical elements were beyond me, but the instructors presented the material in such a way that it really demonstrated the art of philosophical thinking about the field of science.

Nice slides.Lectures are well prepared .Quizzes are relevant to the subject and thoughtfully worded so that even wrong choices also contribute to the knowledge of the study material.
