The place of an anthropic argument in the discrimination between various cosmological models is to be reconsidered following the classic criticisms of Paul C. W. Davies and Frank J. Tipler. Different versions of the anthropic argument against cosmologies involving an infinite series of past events are analysed and applied to several instructive instances. This not only is of historical significance but also presents an important topic for the future of cosmological research if some of the… Expand
