Thought Experiments

 

Are thought experiments epistemic miracles that enable us to learn about the world merely by reflections from the comfort of our armchairs? Or are they merely picturesque devices for clarifying and revealing to us what we already knew? Or should we conceive of their role in some other way? This summer school will examine thought experiments and their role in science and philosophy. It will consider general problems of principle concerning thought experiments as well as the place and function of exemplar thought experiments largely drawn from physical sciences, but from philosophy and mathematics, as well.

 

Course Topics:

Typology of thought experiments

Function of thought experiments

Epistemology of thought experiments

The content and utility of particular thought experiments
