2) be able to compare, evaluate and manage the outcome of different search strategies.

with respects to Philosophy of Science:
1) account for central concepts and theories in philosophy of science,
2) account for common problems that arise in the area of the philosophy of science, and
3) identify, analyze and discuss problems that arise in the area of philosophy of science, especially in the field of medical sciences.
