Theory of Science for PhD Fellows
Aarhus School of Architecture,
November 9-11 and November 23-25, 2021
This course provides a basic and thorough introduction
to the theory of science from a historical and disciplinary perspective. The
course focuses mainly on the humanities, concepts of knowledge from the social
sciences, and design-based research approaches, such as
research-through-design. The course aims to provide participants with a broad
understanding of different scientific theoretical positions and, in particular,
their criteria for validity, reliability, and credibility. The course will also
touch upon methodological research issues and enable participants to place
their research projects on a broader science theoretical perspective. The
course will be based on presentations and joint discussions and will involve
the participants’ research projects to a limited extent. The course requires
preparation in the form of a course syllabus.
Presenters: Niels Albertsen, Richard Herriott, Søren Kjørup, Martin Odgaard, Claus Peder Pedersen and Anders Troelsen.
