The course examines the conceptual foundations underlying our current scientific understanding of the origin and evolution of the universe. The subject is viewed through four astrophysical windows: the universe as a whole; galaxies; stars; and planets. We explore how these various settings provide the essential ingredients for the genesis of life. Finally we examine the evolution of scientific thought that enabled humans to develop an understanding of the universe around them.
