cunts talking about kant
Hey guys. It's been almost a year since the last post in this community. Let's not let it die!|
I'm taking a class on the Philosophy of Science this semester. It's one of the most interesting classes I have taken in quite a long time. A question was posited on the first day of class and it's still bugging me. Who knows if it can ever truly be answered, but I was curious as to what your thoughts were on the matter.
Everyone knows that Physics is a science. The same goes for Biology, Chemistry, etc. But why don't we normally consider, say, History or Economics sciences? What is/are the defining characteristic(s) of science?
