In this new thread, I will post news related to cosmology: conferences, new websites, etc. I hope that this new thread, along with other resources here at C@H will provide cosmology enthusiats with some of the information they seek. We are cerainly open to your suggestions and criticisms. And, needless to say, this thread is open to your participation.

A New 'Philosophy of Cosmology' Field of Study Established by Oxford, Cambridge and a Number of US Universities.

This new initiative, which is funded by the John Templeton Foundation, is a partnership between Oxford University and Cambridge University in the UK and a number of US universities including Columbia, Yale and NYU. The main goal of the initiative is to establish philosophy of cosmology as a branch of philosophy of physics.

Contrary to one might think, our contemporary attitude about physics is a new phenomenon. It dates back only to the post Second World War era, when the center of world physics shifted from Europe to the United States. A major characteristic of this shift has been the divorce of physics from philosophy. We are still in that era, and it appears that praising the significance that philosophical thinking played in the evolution of physics amounts to much more than a misguided nostalgia. In fact, I have come recently across a discussion by Brian Greene, Walter Isaacson, and Paul Steinhardt, in which Steinhardt makes comments on this vital issue. Walter Isaacson has written an outstanding biography of Albert Einstein, which I strongly recommend. I will write a review of this book soon.

Hello C@Homers,


Since 2009, the Berkley Center for Cosmological Physics and the Advanced Institute for Cosmology, Mexico have jointly organized the Essential Cosmology for the Next Generation school through which cosmology graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interact with researchers at the cutting edge of the field. You could find more background information about this ambitious program here.
