Epistemology

6 ECTs / Semester / Portuguese

Objectives: This curricular unit seeks to convey knowledge about the meaning of epistemology as a critical discourse on science as well as the background of the historical development of the notion of science that, through the discoveries of entropy, radioactivity, relativity and quantum physics, made the transition from a static, mechanistic and deterministic vision to a dynamic, probabilistic and relativist vision of the laws of nature.
