This course is a review of the foundations of modern science emphasizing the status of our current view of Nature from the discoveries as we begin the 21st century. The course will be an introduction to the philosophy used to explore Nature and the meaning of reality. We will build a non-mathematical course with a modern perspective, using ideas and concepts that are acquired in the last century of scientific exploration.
