Philosophy of Science with Hilary Putnam

INTRO: This interview is from a 1978 BBC program, transcript/subtitles available.

Bryan Magee and Hilary Putnam discuss some of the basic issues in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mathematics including the nature of scientific knowledge, scientific method, demarcation, objectivity, the notion of truth (e.g. the correspondence theory), inductive logic, reductionism, the fact-value dichotomy, materialism, the nature of mathematics, etc.

Hilary Putnam was an American philosopher, mathematician, and computer scientist who was a central figure in analytic philosophy. He made important contributions to many fields, including logic, philosophy of mind, mathematics, philosophy of language, epistemology, and the philosophy of science.

Check out Putnam's book "Reason, Truth, and History" (PDF):
