Sinopse

Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Philosophy - Theoretical (Realisation, Science, Logic, Language), grade: 73 (=1st), University of Nottingham (Department of Philosophy), course: Seminar, Realism and Anti-realism, 3 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This essay is concerned with internal realism, a position that can be understood as intermediate between scientific realism and constructivism, which are two strands in the realism/ anti-realism debate regarding philosophy of science. It is presented in the paper 'What Science Aims to Do' by Brian Ellis (1985). To introduce the problem Ellis faces in his essay, I shall begin by outlining the debate on the aim of science, presenting a sceptical argument which claims that truth is irrelevant to scientific discoveries. I will then go on to outline and discuss three central points concerning Ellis' paper: Scientific Realism; Conventionalism and Empirical Underdetermination; and Internal and Metaphysical Realism. Finally, I will summarize and evaluate the arguments in support of internal realism. The aim of this essay is to discover how successfully internal realism deals with scepticism.
