Studies in Logic and Philosophy of Science are characterized by particular awareness of current problems related to knowledge, sciences and technology. The main goal of the Master’s Degree is to further the knowledge of present day problems related to knowledge, sciences and technology from the different perspectives of Logic and Philosophy of Science and its related disciplines. This overall purpose is to be achieved through the following specific aims:
BS6. To have a strong knowledge base that allows them to innovate in the development and/or implementation of ideas, especially for research purposes.
BS7. The ability to apply the knowledge they have acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or little known areas within wider (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study.
BS8. The ability to integrate knowledge and deal with the complexities of forming opinions based on incomplete or limited information, including reflections on social responsibilities and ethics.
BS9. The ability to clearly and unambiguously communicate conclusions and the knowledge and reasons behind them to specialized and non-specialized audiences.
BS10. Learning skills to carry out further studies and research in a self-directed and autonomous way.
GS1. Students should be able to produce readable, detailed and technically correct documents and research work that meets the current international standards for the disciplines.
SS1. The ability to identify traditional and current knowledge specific to the field of logic and philosophy of science, as well as the different trends of thought and tradition involved.
SS2. Mastery of the analytical tools provided by philosophy to facilitate the clear identification of the semantic, logical, epistemological, ontological, axiological and ethical factors that are present in science and technology.
SS3. The ability to assess disputes, considering and overviewing alternatives to decide upon the better justified and reasoned parts.
SS4. To be able to identify arguments as they appear in texts, dialogues and discussions, assessing their accuracy, acceptability and persuasiveness.
