What is unorthodox during this ebook? a lot has occurred within the previous few years, particularly when it comes to the a bit of surpris ing fee at which the theories offered herein were gaining expanding recognition and help even through the main skeptical pros. however, the aim of this up-dated Preface isn't really to inform the biographical and recognition tale at the back of this booklet, yet to assemble a few non-physical and non technical conclusions for these readers who locate the physico-mathematical sections of this booklet too tricky to stick to. A secondary objective is to give right here a few more recent conclu sions, specially regularly philosophy and in aesthetics. but, the most physico philosophical conclusions awarded during this ebook aren't to be summarized right here. For that function one needs to tum to the textual content itself. * * * The theories provided right here were built in overall isolation. They have been by no means awarded in "professional conferences", as most modern writers do. even if that was once very important is still visible. consequently, all i will be able to nation to critics and enthusiastic stick with ers alike is the truth that i don't belong to any 'formal discipline', 'pressure group', or 'pro fessional organization'.

Indeed, astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology - unlike local physics, chemistry, and biology, are observational rather than experimental sciences, since they deal with objects at such great distances as to be beyond the reach of direct, man-made experimentation. Moreover, until now these observations have been too scarce, 2 Relativistic Cosmology Vs. " Recent discoveries however, have, almost overnight, transformed the situation by yielding solid new data and drastically circumscribing both speculations and cosmological models.
We shall return to these questions later. Meanwhile let us turn our attention to recent advances in astronomy and astrophysics. 4 THE GREAT PHYSICO-PHILOSOPHICAL GAINS FROM THE DISCOVERY OF THE COSMIC BACKGROUND RADIATION How can the very foundations of physics, or the principles of modern philosophy of science, be modified in response to the new discoveries in astronomy and cosmology? 20 Introduction This subject is taken up in Lectures VI to IX. Here we only stress a single example and outline the main principles involved.
As a result, different authors have approached the problems discussed from widely varying viewpoints, employing disjointed concepts to what should be a unified system. A few years ago, during a course of lectures (Weizmann Institute of Science, Yale, Princeton and Harvard) I found that the three combined subjects-cosmology, physics and philosophy-command the attention not only of astrophysicists, astronomers, physicists and philosophers of science, but of other disciplines as well. This trend has been reflected in recent years by the growing number of papers and books which refer to, or reflect on new theories which deal with these three subjects as well as with their wide implications in other fields of modem human thought.
