Rutgers Templeton Project in Philosophy of Cosmology

We are a group of physicists, philosophers, and mathematicians on the faculties of five universities (Rutgers, Columbia, NYU, Yale, UC Santa Cruz) whose research includes investigations in the philosophy and foundations of physics and cosmology. We are involved in a project dedicated to exploring foundational issues in cosmology and developing a community of philosophers, scientists, and scholars  working in philosophy of cosmology. Our project includes conferences, a summer school, lectures and seminars. On this page you will find links to our research, to a blog discussing issues in philosophy of cosmology and other activities of our group and its members. A Universe From Nothing? In 'A Universe From Nothing,' Lawrence M. Krauss argues that quantum mechanics can explain why there is something rather than nothing. In this review in the New York Times, David Albert argues that Kraus' arguments fall far shorter than he intends.  For a full discussion look here.
