philosophy of science


The image above depicts a sailing ship entering unchartered waters, which I can only guess is a metaphor for the vast natural world that can be explained through observation and experiment. Bacon wrote about why, when seeking knowledge about the world, we can’t rely on deduction alone: We need scientific methods, whichever ones work. I’m no Bacon. I’m no philosopher of science. But that’s ok because that’s not what this blog is about.
