Book Description

Reflections on science, culture, and society, by the acclaimed author of The Woods Hole Cantata and The Doctor with Two Heads

In this retrospective of Gerald Weissmann's best-known essays, the reader is treated to his unique perspective on what C. P. Snow once dubbed "the Two Cultures"-art and science. In Darwin's Audubon, Weissmann examines the powerful influence that the two exert over one another and how they have helped each other evolve. From listening to the scientists who gather ever year to sing at the Woods Hole Cantata Consort to looking at the influence of Audubon's watercolors on Darwin's On the Origin of Species; from comparing William Carlos Williams's poetry to his unedited case books to watching Oliver Wendell Holmes grow as doctor and as poet, Weissmann weaves a rich tapestry that will delight fans and newcomers alike. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Synchronicity and other stuff?
What amazed me about this book - apart from the excellent writing and obvious literary skills of Weismann - was the way the author brought seemingly disparate ideas and themes together: choral music and sanitation; unusual psychological syndromes and military service.
There's an endless imagination drawn on here - maybe a bit clunkily at times - and this is one of Weismann's overarching themes: the importance of imagination.
I enjoyed this - and will keep on dreaming.

5-0 out of 5 stars Analysis of art, science, and culture
Essays by the author provide plenty of insights into science and the liberal imagination, bringing together works from his prior books to accompany seven new works. The author's analysis of art, science, and culture considers influences on all and how the various genres have helped each other to evolve. ... Read more

Book Description

This latest installment in our On the Shoulders of Giants series presents the provocative essay by Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) in its entirety. Famed for its unapologetic support of Copernicus's theory and subsequent proof that the earth did indeed revolve around the sun (and not vice versa), Galileo's essay engendered great controversy when it was published, as well as heated opposition from the Church. The first work to outwardly challenge the established authority of religion, Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences set the standard for all future scientists faced with the conflict of science and religion. In this text, readers will also find an illuminating biography of the father of modern physics, and an introduction by modern-day physics superstar Stephen Hawking. The first book in this series sold more than 75,000 copies.

3-0 out of 5 stars I wish Galileo had put some interesting drawing...
instead of dialogue only. I have not read entire book, but the preview of the book was boring. I like the picture description better than word description. I realized Galileo could not draw his theories directly, instead he let us imagine it by reading his words, because the church would have given him ultimate punishment if he did.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Journey of Science
Galileo's masterpiece comes through to all who are blessed enough to read it. Copernicus would be proud. ... Read more

Book Description

Through a series of personal essays, this book addresses a wide array of past, current, and future issues in landscape ecology. The essays have been contributed by leading landscape ecologists from North America, Europe, and Australia, and provide an overview of the rich tapestry of viewpoints and perspectives that make landscape ecology at once a well-defined and yet also a frustratingly diverse discipline. The contributions span a range of topics and approaches, addressing theory as well as practice, science as well as application, conservation as well as utilization, and aquatic as well as terrestrial systems. The volume therefore provides informative and entertaining reading for beginning and advanced students, landscape managers, conservationists, and teachers. ... Read more

Book Description

My Science Thesis is the begining of a trilogy. And it really is a trilogy.
Because it is in two parts.
And it only takes one part to complete it.
It is the rosetta stone on physics.The answers are contained in the book.
It is just a matter of working out the code.
And if was a rosetta stone there would people spending time working out the code.
But really it is a prophesy about 666.
And that is a code.
So it a rosetta stone for the numerical code in the bible.
And that code does speak about modern physics.
And that is a claim that will make no sense to you.
Because you are not a physicist.
And if you were you wouldn't believe it.
That's why it takes an expert.
To make up his mind that he wants to believe.
That God has exalted His word above His name.

Book Description

The most outstanding feature of this book is that here, for the first time, is made available in a single volume all the important historical essays Edgar Zilsel (1891--1944) published during WWII on the emergence of modern science. This edition also contains one previously unpublished essay and an extended version of an essay published earlier. In these essays, Zilsel developed the now famous thesis, named after him, that science came into being when, in the late Middle Ages, the social barriers between the intellectuals and the artisans were eroded, due to the fact that the rapidly expanding commercial classes of that period had a keen interest in improvements in technology. This class was city-based and stimulated a social environment in which men of learning came to regard the craftsmen and technicians with a new respect, in which they no longer felt any contempt for manual work and in which theory and practice were eventually combined to produce modern science.This critical edition also carries a long introduction in which much new material about Zilsel's life and work is presented. It suggests that a radical new look at Zilsel's project needs to be taken. Zilsel's essays on the history of science look like a standard case study to substantiate a particular position on the origins of modern science, but they were also an attempt to show that lawlike explanation in history and social theory is possible. It is claimed that Zilsel's historical essays were a part of another project he was working on which focused on the idea that social phenomena were open to causal explanation as much as physical phenomena. Hence the volume also contains the essays Zilsel wrote in relation to this other project.Previously there have been published a German and an Italian edition of the Zilsel essays. This edition is the first in English; compared to the other two editions this one is the first that includes unpublished material and the first to undertake a serious effort to research Zilsel's life and work.What is special about this volume is the well-articulated social perspective it takes on the origins of modern science.Audience: Students in early modern social history/history of science as well as professional philosophers, historians, and sociologists of science. ...

Book Description

In the last three decades, bioethics has matured into a field of study with several areas of concentration, including medical ethics, environmental ethics and more recently, genetic ethics. For reasons related to both the developmental history of the subject and to the poignancy of the problems presented, most textbooks and collections of essays have dealt with only a single area, medical ethics. In fact, to many not in the field, the word bioethics has become synonymous with medical ethics. The aim of this collection of essays, entitled New Dimensions in Bioethics: Science, Ethics and the Formation of Public Policy, is to enlarge this restrictive vision of the field as it is usually studied at universities. By combining essays relevant to medical ethics with companion essays on environmental ethics and genetic ethics, the book emphasizes similarities in the methods of analysis used in diverse bioethical problems, whether dealing with genes, with people or the environment. In this way, New Dimensions in Bioethics: Science, Ethics and the Formation of Public Policy, hopes to contribute to the intellectual unity of the subject and to suggest changes in the way bioethics can be taught and studied at both the graduate and undergraduate level. ...
