Any cosmological consideration must be based on one or more cosmological principles. Six of them are described namely: The Ancient Hindu, the Ancient Greek, the Genuine Copernican, the Generalized Copernican, the Perfect and the Anthropic Ones. Some cosmological principles have common properties, some are contradictory; some are logically independent, some dependent. Cosmological principles influence not only interpretation of results but they influence the results of cosmology as such. A consciousness of problems connected with cosmological principles is necessary when getting in touch with cosmology.
