Decription:

What is the origin of our universe? What are dark matter and dark energy? What is our role in the universe as human beings capable of knowledge? What makes us intelligent cognitive agents seemingly endowed with consciousness? Scientific research across both the physical and cognitive sciences raises fascinating philosophical questions. Philosophy and the Sciences For Everyone introduces these questions and more. It begins by asking what good is philosophy for the sciences before examining the following questions:

 

 

 

  • The origin of our universe
  • Dark matter and dark energy
  • Anthropic reasoning in philosophy and cosmology
  • Evolutionary theory and the human mind
  • What is consciousness?
  • Intelligent machines and the human brain
  • Embodied Cognition.

 

Each chapter includes an introduction, summary and study questions and there is a glossary of technical terms. Designed to be used on the corresponding Philosophy and the Sciences online course offered by the University of Edinburgh this book is also a superb introduction to central topics in philosophy of science and popular science.

About author: Michela Massimi, David Carmel, Andy Clark, Jane Suilin Lavelle, John Peacock, Duncan Pritchard, Alasdair Richmond, Peggy Seriès, Kenny Smith, and Mark Sprevak are all based at the University of Edinburgh, UK.
