A Crash Course in the Central Terms and Concepts of Science

In linguistics, computational and corpus linguistics, a dedicated education in the philosophy of science is rare. Therefore, terms and concepts of science are confused and misused in many cases, which may lead to severely false conclusions.

The course attempts to present the participants a thorough overview over the preconditions of scientific work and over the logics of scientific activities in general.

The course considers

– the concepts of facts, phenomena, and data

– the concepts and types of scientific problems and their logical structure

– the concept and the types of scientific concepts

– the concept and the types of scientific hypotheses and models

– the concept of laws

– the concept of scientific explanation and prediction

– the helix of scientific work from antecedens knowledge to new knowledge
