Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to see if it would be useful for some of my friends who wanted to know more about cosmology.

I have a bit of background (Susskind's lectures) so no problem for me, but unfortunately not suitable for my friends.

Format: Paperback

"I also think we need to maintain distinctions - the doctrine of creation is different from a scientific cosmology, and we should resist the temptation, which sometimes scientists give in to, to try to assimilate the concepts of theology to the concepts of science." John Polkinghorne

Origin of the Universe:
Cosmology means the science of the world, the natural complement of the special sciences. The cosmologist seeks the ultimate causes of the whole material universe. He inquires into the constituent nature of corporeal beings, their destiny, and their first cause. It is rare for religions to give a single cosmology or cosmogony purporting to be a description of the origin of the universe, in the way in which a scientific cosmology might aim to give a critically realistic account of the origin and nature of the universe. In this study, the author introduces his interpretation of the creation myths of the city of Heliopolis, the center of the solar cult in ancient Egypt.

This Slim Paperback:
This authoritative Scientific American Pocket Science book examines basic questions and discusses the scientific and related technological conclusions that spring from the study of cosmology. Comprised of critically acclaimed essays by some of the world's leading experts on related topics, takes you on an expedition to explore questions and propose answers to theories that became definitive texts on crucial issues of our post modern times.
The Slim Paperback is targeted to intelligent readers who want to expand their understanding of complex scientific subjects and contains essays from top scientists working in the field.
