This course aims to encourage the participants to widen their perspectives on the nature of scientific knowledge and how this knowledge is related to a "reality". In order to achieve this aim the course focuses on an a self analysis of the participants' research and research experiences in terms of concepts originating from the philosophy of science, for example, observation, theory, method, paradigm, and objectivity. The ambition is that the participants will develop competence to constructively analyse how they and their research environment relate to the research process and the research outcome. The course includes lectures on central concepts, reading of a selection of original texts, group discussions and the writing of four small essays.
