Scientific Reasoning

Term: 5. Semester
ECTS: 3

Module Owner:
Prof. Dr. Max Urchs

The course “Philosophy of Science” takes a focus on a central topic of contemporary science: uncertainty. We explain how this relates to deep going changes towards a new understanding of the complexity of real-world systems and to the emergence of massive simulation (or: uncertainty quantification) as a new scientific method. To that aim we investigate the concept of algorithm, its platform-based range and limitations. We draw conclusions for practical applications in industry (e.g. cyber-physical systems), leadership (e.g. design thinking), and social life (e.g. credits for pro-social behaviour). We intend to provide an overall picture of digitization and to embed it in a broader philosophical setting.
