HIST 394 - History of Astronomy and Cosmology from Stonehengeto the Space Age  *3 (3-0-0)

Description: For thousands of years, humans have watched and studied the skies to help them navigate the seas, cultivate crops and win the approval of their gods. In this course we will explore a variety of key topics in this history of the shifting relationship between human beings and the cosmos. Although the emphasis will be on the last five hundred years, we will begin by examining the remarkable story of the astronomy of early civilizations, including Egypt, Babylon and the builders of Stonehenge. Central themes for the second half of the course will be how new sorts of instruments (most spectacularly the telescope) helped remake astronomers’ views of the cosmos and the changing views of astronomers on what they took to be the universe of stars but which, by the 1920s, had been transformed into a universe of galaxies that was expanding. An important point is that while we will be concerned with the changing ideas about astronomical objects and the nature of the universe, we will also be addressing the social, political, economic and cultural contexts of, and issues involved in, the pursuit of astronomy and cosmology.
