Many people think that philosophy and science are miles apart. But philosophy of science is a dynamic field. It asks questions like: are scientific explanations always true and what's the difference between science and other ways of knowing? It explores issues such as the relation of science to common sense, the relation of theory to observation, the claim to objectivity in the natural and social sciences, and the role of values in scientific research.
