Definition
the study of the origin of the universe
  • For although it might be tolerable if human reason and knowledge held themselves within earthly bounds and treated the subject-object experience as real within that sphere, the moment it reached out into the eternal riddle, into so-called cosmology or cosmogony, the joke was over, and presumptu-ousness had achieved the acme of monstrosity.
