Dr. Rapaport's lecture on the Philosophy of Computer Science was especially enlightening concerning the relationship between various studies and their corresponding "study of a study," namely, the philosophies thereof. I had never before considered the benefits of studying the philosophy of a science as an independent subject, but the lecture and the class discussion it prompted made me think about the study of methods, ethics, and overall change of a particular science. It seems that these, and other variables, would be helpful in keeping a broader perspective especially when researching a topic on the micro level. Thank you for a different perspective!
