NEW MSC SPECIALISATION IN PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE,
 UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH

The University of Edinburgh has recently established 
a new research cluster in philosophy of science, 
which is uniquely placed to pursue interdisciplinary
research in the field, in synergy with other research
areas such as mind & cognition, epistemology, and 
early modern philosophy.

Key areas and topics covered by faculty members in 
philosophy of science include: metaphysical issues 
in science (philosophy of time and time-travel; 
realism and antirealism; natural kinds; causation; 
laws of nature); history and philosophy of science 
(especially the history and philosophy of natural 
sciences); philosophy of psychology;
philosophy of neuroscience, and philosophy 
of cognitive sciences.
