Abstract

There can be no doubt that the evolution undergone by our ideas concerning the universe from ancient until very recent times has been characterized, on the one hand, by the removal of the earth, and of mankind, from the privileges position attributed to both of them in old cosmologies, and, on the other hand, by the rejection of any teleological point of view.
