I've just read "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" by Thomas Kuhn which is a seminal work in the history of science, and raises philosophical questions (at least for me) about the production and nature of scientific knowledge. Now I'm looking for good rebuttals to Kuhn and perhaps will read something by Karl Popper, who also wrote about science, next.
It occurred to me that it would be a lot more fun to do this as part of a group. Does anyone want to read in this area, also, and if so, maybe we could get a discussion group together?
I'm very much a lay person with regards to philosophy and the history of science so I'd rather not be the one to teach this class, although perhaps with some outside advisement on a sort of syllabus I'd be happy to help coordinate. I'd imagine this being a couple months long and involve discussing a book, section of a book, or article each weekend.
