Enroll in HPS100 Introductory History and Philosophy of Science at https://acorn.utoronto.ca/

My name is Hakob Barseghyan. I teach history and philosophy of science at the IHPST, University of Toronto. It is my goal to help my students appreciate how fascinating both the history and philosophy of science are. HPS100 is my introductory course on history and philosophy of science; it is offered online in both Fall and Winter terms.

The course is funded by University of Toronto, Online Learning Strategies (http://onlinelearning.utoronto.ca/) and the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (http://www.hps.utoronto.ca/)
