AST 1911: Nothing

2 CreditsFreshman Seminar

Is \"nothing\" too wonderful to be true, as the great eighteenth century physicist Michael Faraday pondered? Following the Bard, in this seminar we will make much ado about \"nothing.\" From the birth of the Universe ex-nihilo, to the philosophies that find meaning in nothing, to the tangled history of zero over the centuries, to our beginnings as seen by theologies when even nothing was not. In our journey through the teeming vacuum, \"nothing\" is sacred, and will be both ventured and gained. Caution is advised, however, in telling people that you've signed up for \"nothing!\"
