History and Philosophy of Science; and Science, Technology, and Values

Overview of History and Philosophy of Science

John J. Reilly Center

The history of science covers developments in the natural and social sciences and mathematics from antiquity to the modern day. The philosophy of science covers what science is, how it works, and the logic by which we build scientific knowledge. Both fields are inter-, cross-, and multi-disciplinary.

Society, technology, and values inspires student reflection on connections between and across disciplines, examining science, technology, and medicine through the lens of the liberal arts and in the service of human dignity and the common good.
