Abstract: 

The author focuses on some issues within a course of philosophy of science which are difficult to understand. Some approaches for grasping some basic notions of philosophy of science are suggested. Among them is the notion of a demarcation of science, philosophy and religion. A special focus is given to the techniques of organizing discussions of relevant issues.
