The Book provides a concise study of Cosmology at an introductory level.
Starting from elementary principles and the history of Cosmology, the text
carefully guides the readers through a Christian Philosophical journey in
knowing and experiencing the Cosmos. It comprehensively deals with the
historical background of understanding Cosmology; it amplifies the origin
and the problems of creation by basing itself substantially on philosophy -
both the eastern and the western understanding of the world; and provides
truthful reflections with selected authors for the conclusion. It offers a
sound background in applying the principles of Metaphysics to Cosmology.
The annotated Bibliography at the end of the Book provides the readers with
selected readings referred by the Author. It is also recommended for
further reading, interpretations and conclusions.
These notes will be helpful not only for Cosmological novice(s) but also
for readers who are well versed with Ancient, Medieval, and Modern
Philosophy (East and West); students (undergraduates, graduates and
advanced) having basic knowledge in the field of Philosophy, Metaphysics
and Epistemology; Cosmologists; Philosophers; Seminarians; Institutions and
Libraries of the concerned subject.
