Kurzbeschreibung

While astronomy is a burgeoning science, with tremendous increases in knowledge every year, it also has a tremendous past, one that has altered humanity's understanding of our place in the universe. The impact of astronomy on culture - whether through myths and stories, or through challenges to the intellectual status quo - is incalculable. This volume in the <b>Greenwood Guides to the Universe</b> series examines how human cultures, in all regions and time periods, have tried to make sense of the wonders of the universe. <i>Astronomy and Culture</i> shows students how people throughout time have struggled with the complexities apparent in the night sky, complexities that modern science has only just begun to understand.
