|Abstract||In the present essay Kantian prohibition against scientific cosmology is discussed. It is shown that the possibility of such a science is based essentially on a hypothetico-deductive use of the cosmological principle. Moreover the epistemological character of the latter is investigated, in order to prove that it has no a priori character, against the received view on the topics.|
