What Happened Before the Big Bang?

There’s a great interview with philosopher of physics Tim Maudlin of NYU over at The Atlantic. Maudlin and his ilk are interested in proving Stephen Hawking’s notion that “philosophy is dead” wrong. (Dead wrong…get it? Play me off!) They are interested in using the philosophy of cosmology in order to theorize about the unprovable, for example, what happened *before* the big bang.
