Week 8

This week we have begun to explore key concepts within science. These include inductive logic, deductive logic, falsification and the role of paradigms in defining scientific knowledge.

1. Have a look at these videos, which are about a controversial area of science (quantum physics) and how it developed. The third one goes further, exploring how scientific paradigms may have stunted our understanding of the traditional concept of the soul.

2. In your blog, identify an example of inductive logic and an example of deductive logic from any of the videos - or from your own experience.

3. Come back to the discussion forums to discuss the third video - Is there such a thing as the human soul?
