Philosophy and the Sciences MOOC

Here you can find one of Dr. Massimi’s lectures from our Philosophy and the Sciences MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) in which she discusses Kant’s early attempt at explaining the origin of our universe using Newtonian principles in his 1755 Universal Natural History and Theory of the Heavens. The Philosophy and the Sciences MOOC draws together practicing scientists and philosophers at Edinburgh to explain topics lying at the intersection of philosophy and science, and runs every year.  In its first (2014) iteration it attracted over 61,000 online students.
