E300 Astrological Heritage

Astrology has a rich heritage stretching back thousands of years. We sometimes think of astrology as just one thing, but different cultures asked different questions as they found meaning in the ever-changing sky. This class offers a survey of the history of astrology, primarily in the West.

Students will:

  • Exmaine how astrology originated in various cultures and what questions it sought to address
  • See how astrology became embedded in mainstream culture in these socieities
  • Study the lineages in which different astrological theoris developed
  • Examine the relationship between the history of science and religion, philosophy and mythology
  • Examine the changes in cosmology throughout history and how these changes affected society's attitudes.
  • Critique the intellectual shifts in religion and philosophy that led to the modern scientific and secular worldview, and the rejection of intuitive ways of knowing
  • Explore how changes in 20th century philosophy and science affected the arts and sciences, and how 21st century research is moving toward a more inclusive world view.
