The Age of the Universe and its Measurement

Beisbart, Claus (6 October 2014). The Age of the Universe and its Measurement (Unpublished). In: Workshop on the history of Time accuracy in Physics and Astronomy. Paris. 6.-7.10.2014.

Current wisdom in cosmology has it that the Universe is about 13.8 billions year old. Statements about the age of the Universe are not just difficult to confirm, but also carry a lot of presuppositions. The aim of this talk is to make explicit these presuppositions, to discuss their significance and to trace the implications for an emipirical investigation of the age of the Universe.
