7 FSG500-Philosophy of Science Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.... Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning.... The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high.... –Einstein summarizing theory of general relativity Science is but an image of the truth-Francis Bacon If a theory corresponds to the facts but does not cohere with some earlier knowledge, then this earlier knowledge should be discarded. (Popper, 1975) Background picture: The Death of Socrates as ordered by the court Voice: Website:

8 FSG500-Philosophy of Science Karl PopperKarl Popper contended that central question in the philosophy of science was distinguishing science from non-science claimed that the central feature of science was that science aims at falsifiable claims (i.e. claims that can be proven false, at least in principle) falsifiable Is human the result of intelligent design or a result of evolution? Are scientific theories the truth? Copernicus Heliocentric Sun-centered Theory Greeces Aristotle theory on gravity: all bodies had 'a natural tendency' to move to their 'natural place' (water, air, fire, earth???) widely accepted though entirely unproven explanation of gravity Voice: Website: Background picture: The Death of Socrates as ordered by the court
