The goal of this master's program is to acquire the skills necessary to address philosophical questions arising from the exact sciences.
How did the vision of space and time change from Newton to Einstein? What is matter following the revolution of quantum physics? What is a law of nature? Do mathematical objects really exist? Can a machine be conscious?
These questions, among many others, will be tackled in the course. Reflecting on these issues provides intellectual tools for a better understanding of modern science and technologies. After introductory lectures, the students work in groups of 2 to 5 students to address a philosophical topic of interest.
