Introduction

  • Benjamin Gal-Or
Chapter

Abstract

Recent explorations of the external world, as conducted by astronomers, astrophysicists and cosmologists, have generated a revolution in our understanding of the physical world; a scientific revolution without parallel in the whole recorded history of mankind; a fresh look at nature, which opened up new horizons and generated new needs to re-examine all previous philosophical convictions
