Abstract

By adequately adapting a ‘knowledge by enquire’ approach, an appraisal of what supersymmetric quantum cosmology (SQC) entails (viz., some of the difficulties but also current successes and motivation) is subsequently presented. More concretely, the basics of SQC are briefly reviewed in a pedagogical manner. The purpose is twofold: (i) promote SQC as a promising line where to conduct research work and (ii) provide an introduction to the essential computational framework. Directions still open to be explored are pointed out.
