Philosophy and Sociology of Science

The programme, unique in the UK for its combination of philosophical and sociological perspectives on science and technology, examines the concept of science, the knowledge it provides and the way in which the production of knowledge is organised in society. In doing so, it prepares students for further research or employment in the management and evaluation of science and its impact on society - an increasingly important aspect of science policy. Based in the Department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology the programme draws on staff research interests and expertise in the philosophy of biology, the mind, economics and social science, as well as in the sociology of science and technology. Students also benefit from close collaboration with Egenis, the Centre for the Study of Life Sciences a world class research centre at Exeter set up to investigate the meaning and social implications of contemporary genomic science. The Centre offers option modules and other study workshops for participants on the programme.
