From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are two very different senses in which the term "Cosmology" is usually used.
- Physical cosmology is the scholarly and academic study of questions about the ultimate fate of the universe. The subject matter of this field is studied using scholarly methodology, including the scientific method and reason. It is studied by scientists, such as theoretical physicists; and academic philosophers, such as metaphysicians, philosophers of physics, and philosophers of space and time.
- Religious cosmology is study in the humanities, of the historical, mythological, religious, and esoteric literature and theories about eschatology (i.e. the end of the world), including such theories, as for instance apocalypticism.
Cosmology may also refer to:
- Cosmology (album), 2010 album by Rolo Tomassi
- Cosmology (The Urantia Book), cosmological and metaphysical concept outlined in The Urantia Book
- Cosmology@Home, BOINC distributed computing project
