Your astronomical view of the world
course we discussed how the astronomical view of the world has changed over the
past few millennia, particularly during the last 500 years or so. At the same
time, the culture and our ideas of the world we live in have changed, too.
Task: Write a short (word limit: 500 words) essay that considers the following points:
- Has this course affected your (astronomical) view of the world in any way? Please give examples.
- Having learned the concise history of astronomy, do you
think it has affected the way you think about the world around you? Explain why
or why not.
