David Deutsch – Explanations

November 19, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

David Deutsch gives a brief talk on explanations and their role in progress.

Read more on progress: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/scientific-progress/ (Section 4. Is Science Progressive? is especially interesting).

And if you enjoy the history and philosophy of science, you should (if you haven’t already) enjoy a good dose of Kuhn: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/thomas-kuhn/.
