Reaching for the Moon — A Delightful Space

Whether it’s the moon looming large and bright, or the billions of twinkling stars, the nocturnal sky as we see it has fascinated humanity for aeons.

Star of David as an Astronomical Double Pyramid — The Star of David

Astronomy and Pythagorean Mathematics? This is at best A VERY SPECULATIVE IDEA: The Star of David, a six-sided star or hexagram is known among Hebrews today as Mogen David.

Planets, stars and meteors: simple joys of naked-eye astronomy — Epistulae Astronomicae

In an age of space telescopes, professional telescopes with mirrors many meters in diameter and affordable amateur telescopes of good quality, it may sound silly to talk about naked-eye astronomy. After all, what good are our eyes in comparison with those elegant and powerful instruments? Why would we return the prehistory of astronomy, the dark […]

Paul Feyerabend’s defense of astrology, part I — Plato’s Footnote

Paul Feyerabend was the enfant terrible of 1960s philosophy of science. His most famous book, Against Method argued that science is a quintessentially pragmatic enterprise, with scientists simply using or discarding what does and does not work, meaning that there is no such thing as the scientific method. It’s not for nothing that he was referred […]

I’m sceptical that the SETI signal is actually advanced aliens — Matthew Wright

I think it’s unlikely that the radio signal detected from the star HD 164595, just 95 light years distant, is an alien broadcast. That doesn’t mean I doubt life exists outside the Earth. I think it’s likely it does – maybe in our own solar system, underground on Mars or under the ice crust of […]

10 August 2016 A Danger of Erosion — Julie Demboski’s ASTROLOGY

The AstroEssence: Rage or destructive attitudes are in danger of eroding our internal wisdom, even as (or perhaps because) we turn away from that anger or from matters that need attention; somehow ignoring or denying the problem appears to be the solution–and that’s where we go wrong. We need to think about it, and then clear it out, one […]

The Myth of Scientific Method — The Multidisciplinarian

William Storage – 8/1/2016 Visiting Scholar, UC Berkeley History of Science Nearly everything relies on science. Having been the main vehicle of social change in the west, science deserves the special epistemic status that it acquired in the scientific revolution. By special epistemic status, I mean that science stands privileged as a way of knowing. […]

Stoic astronomy — How to Be a Stoic

The Stoics were not interested just in ethics, even though that was the crucial aspect of their very practical philosophy. In going through the various chapters of the Cambridge Companion to the Stoics, we have looked at aspects of their “logic,” including moral psychology and logic proper; and our explorations of their “physics” has led […]
