The epic story of the scientists through the ages who have sought answers to life’s biggest mystery: How did it begin? In this essential and illuminating history of Western science, Bill Mesler and H. James Cleaves II seek to answer the most crucial question in science: How did life begin? They trace the trials and triumphs of the iconoclastic scientists who have sought to solve the mystery, from Darwin’s theory of evolution to Crick and Watson’s unveiling of DNA. This fascinating exploration not only examines the origin-of-life question, but also interrogates the very nature of scientific discovery and objectivity.

Chinese Studies In The History And Philosophy Of Science And Technology

The articles in this collection were all selected from the first five volumes of the Journal of Dialectics of Nature published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences between 1979 and 1985. The Journal was established in 1979 as a comprehensive theoretical publication concerning the history, philosophy and sociology of the natural sciences. It began publication as a response to China's reform, particularly the policy of opening to the outside world. Chinese scholars began to undertake distinctive, original research in these fields. This collection provides a cross-section of their efforts during the initial phase. To enable western scholars to understand the historical process of this change in Chinese academics, Yu Guangyuan's `On the Emancipation of the Mind' and Xu Liangying's `Essay on the Role of Science and Democracy in Society' have been included in this collection. Three of the papers included on the philosophy of science are discussions of philosophical issues in cosmology and biology by scientists themselves. The remaining four are written by philosophers of science and discuss information and cognition, homeostasis and Chinese traditional medicine, the I Ching (Yi Jing) and mathematics, etc. Papers have been selected on the history of both classical and modern science and technology, the most distinctive of which are macro-comparisons of the development of science in China and the west. Some papers discuss the issue of the demarcation of periods in the history of science, the history of ancient Chinese mathematics, astronomy, metallurgy, machinery, medicine, etc. Others discuss the history of modern physics and biology, the history of historiography of science in China and the history of regional development of Chinese science and technology. Also included are biographies of three post-eighteenth-century Chinese scholars, Li Shanlan (1811-1882), Hua Hengfang (1833–1902), and Cai Yuanpei (1868–1940), who contributed greatly to the introduction of western science and scholarship to China. In addition, three short papers have been included introducing the interactions between Chinese scholars and three great western scientists, Niels Bohr, Norbert Wiener, and Robert A. Millikan.

A Brief History Of Science With Levity

In an attempt to highlight the severity of the appropriation and manipulation of science and technology, Mike Bennett investigates the history of both from a revolutionary new perspective. He takes a unique look at the combined history of science and technology, detailing examples of manipulation of ground-breaking science by the intelligence community. One such example is that of Wernher von Braun. When he was taken to America in 1945, it was kept from the general public that von Braun was a Major in the SS, reporting directly to SS General Hans Kammler, who had been using slave labour from the concentration camps to build V2 rockets. Kammler's achievements and the towering advances made by his group of scientists and engineers were truly ground-breaking and the security system that he put in place to surround and protect these operations was never broken. This marked the start of what we now refer to as black project operations, and the system has since been replicated worldwide. Focussing on the manipulation of technological advances, A Brief History of Science with Levityencourages readers to look more closely at the information disclosed to us about modern science. An extensively researched book, it is full of primary sources, ranging from leading politicians to leaders of rogue nations, diplomats to common thieves and billionaire heads of industry to beggars. This book will appeal to those interested in science and history.
