Branches of cosmic philosophy

Outline of cosmic philosophy
Category: Cosmic philosophy

Cosmic philosophy, also less regularly referred to as space philosophy, or spacial philosophy, and formally known as cosmontology, cosmontry, astrontology, or astrontry is a new major branch or subject of philosophy of Cometanic origin deriving from Astronic philosophy within the Astronic tradition that was first codified and introduced during The Founding of Astronism in the treatise of the Omnidoxy. It is classified as a dispositional discipline of Astronism in the context of its academic study.

Cosmic philosophy is characterised as a branch of study within philosophy which focuses its inquiries on the nature, ontology, forms, functions, structures, epistemologies, aesthetics, logic and metaphysics of The Cosmos as a whole or towards particular cosmic progeny and phenomena. Cosmic philosophers, or cosmontologists, also concern themselves with topics such as the ethics involved in space exploration as well as the role of astronomy in modern human society.

Defining cosmontology

The word “cosmontology” is a product of the Astronese language developed from the Astronist terminology. It attaches the prefix “cosmo-“ relating to The Cosmos to the word “ontology” which is a branch of philosophy exploring the nature of being. Thence, cosmontology is literally the “study of the being of The Cosmos”. 

What constitutes cosmontology, similarly in nature to Astronism, is in consistent flux. Due to the rapidity of advancements in knowledge of The Cosmos taking place and the influx of new questions and topics of discussion on a regular basis, the field of cosmontology is in constant motion. 

Despite this, constituting the discipline of cosmontology is the inquiry into the nature, form, structure and purpose of The Cosmos, humanity’s interaction with The Cosmos, and existential questions posed as a result of answers and theories derived from such inquiries. Essentially, cosmontology is a cross-disciplinary branch of philosophy involving all other branches of philosophy from ethics to ontology to metaphysics as well as incorporating other further afield disciplines such as economics, political science, sociology, futurology among others. 

Cosmontologists are principally concerned with exploring the scientific disciplines of astronomy and cosmology through the context and lens of philosophy. As a result, a plethora of ever-increasing branches of the discipline are emerging that continue to expand and redefine its parameters.  

Cosmontology seeks not necessarily resolve questions regarding The Cosmos as such an aim is left to Science, but instead seeks to expand to the greatest extent the amount of questions, concepts, and theories pertaining to outer space from a philosophical perspective.  


History of cosmontology


The origins of cosmontology as a branch of study within philosophy is solely attributed to the founder of the Astronic tradition, Cometan. Cometan's Philosophy of The Cosmos within the Astronist founding treatise of the Omnidoxy was the first example of a systemised and codified cosmic philosophical discussion and lengthy inquiry in history.

It was particularly in the first disquisition of the Omnidoxy, known as the Monodoxy where cosmic philosophy finds its roots in the extensive musings of Cometan on the subject of The Cosmos and cosmic progeny and phenomena.

Central questions

Cosmontology encompasses all topics in relation to outer space such as astronomical objects, human civilisation in space, and space exploration. However, cosmic philosophy should not be confused with the similarly sounding philosophical branch of cosmology.

Cosmology in philosophy considers the creation and end of the universe, as well as some fundamental questions about what the universe is. There is no doubt that cosmic philosophy and philosophical cosmology are linked, however, some of the most distinct pressing questions considered within cosmic philosophy include the following:

  • Is it right to explore outer space?
  • What are the different functions of cosmic progeny to allow for The Cosmos to successfully operate?
  • What methods should we use to explore outer space?
  • What laws will need to be put in place during our exploration of space?
  • Will nations unite under a single agency for the purposes of space exploration?
  • What can be considered sovereign land in space? How will sovereignty in space be determined?
  • Would it be right for a parent to leave their partner and children behind to embark on a space mission?

Principal branches

Other branches

The following branches of cosmic philosophy are defined by their considerations of the philosophy of subjects outside of philosophy itself. Essentially, the branches of cosmic philosophy titled as a "philosophy of" consider the fundamental theoretical questions of the non-philosophical subjects to which philosophical inquiry is applied.
