  • 30-Second Theoriesby Paul Parsons; Martin Rees

    Icon Books 2012; US$ 11.65

    When it comes to big science, very few things are conclusively known. From Quantum Mechanics to Natural Selection, what we have instead are theories ? ideas explain why things happen the way they do. We don?t know for certain these are correct ? no one ever saw the Big Bang ? but with them we can paint beautiful, breathtaking pictures of everything... more...

  • Evolution of Life and Formby Annie Besant

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Because of her early work as a secular activist who labored tirelessly in support of activities like increasing women's access to birth control information, it surprised many of Annie Besant's friends and colleagues when she developed a strong interest in the esoteric spiritual practice known as Theosophy. But rather than abandoning her previous... more...

  • A Preliminary Discourse on the Study of Natural Philosophyby John F. W. Herschel

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 32.00

    Originally published in 1830, this book can be called the first modern work in the philosophy of science, covering an extraordinary range of philosophical, methodological, and scientific subjects.  "Herschel's book . . . brilliantly analyzes both the history and nature of science."—Keith Stewart Thomson, American Scientist more...

  • Explaining Scienceby Ronald N. Giere

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    "This volume presents an attempt to construct a unified cognitive theory of science in relatively short compass. It confronts the strong program in sociology of science and the positions of various postpositivist philosophers of science, developing significant alternatives to each in a reeadily comprehensible sytle. It draws loosely on recent developments... more...

  • The One Culture?by Jay A. Labinger; Harry Collins

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 27.50

    So far the "Science Wars" have generated far more heat than light. Combatants from one or the other of what C. P. Snow famously called "the two cultures" (science versus the arts and humanities) have launched bitter attacks but have seldom engaged in constructive dialogue about the central issues. In The One Culture?, Jay A. Labinger and Harry Collins... more...

  • Darwin's Diceby Curtis Johnson

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 29.99

    For evolutionary biologists, the concept of chance has always played a significant role in the formation of evolutionary theory. As far back as Greek antiquity, chance and "luck" were understood to be key factors in the evolution of the natural world. Emphasizing chance is an entire way of thinking about nature, and it is also one of the... more...

  • Genomeby Jerry E. Bishop; Michael Waldholz

    Open Road Media 2014; US$ 4.99

    Genome tells the story of the most ambitious scientific adventure of our time. By gradually isolating and identifying all the genes in the human body?the blueprint for life?scientists are closing in on the ability to effectively treat and prevent nearly every disease that strikes man, from muscular dystrophy, diabetes, and cancer to heart ailments,... more...

  • Science and Human Valuesby Jacob Bronowski

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 14.57

    Science and Human Values was originally a lecture by Jacob Bronowski at MIT in 1953. Published five years later, it opens unforgettably with Bronowski's description of Nagasaki in 1945: 'a bare waste of ashes', making him acutely aware of science's power both for good and for evil. After such knowledge, what forgiveness? With care and erudition... more...

  • Mode und Identitätby Barbara Kurtz

    Frohmann 2012; US$ 4.46

    Mode und Identität versucht, einen historischen und erkenntniskritischen Blickwinkel auf den Zusammenhang von Bekleidung und Identität einzunehmen. Kleidung ist ein Medium der Kennzeichnung, ihr System basiert fast schicksalhaft auf Zuschreibung. Sie zeigt seit den frühesten Erscheinungsformen die von Gruppe und Gesellschaft mittels Bekleidungszeichen... more...

  • A Second Genesisby Julian Chela-Flores

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 91.00

    A Second Genesis enquires why nature is intelligible. The fast growth of technology and deeper understanding of the humanities have provided significant clues. Answering the question why nature can be understood requires an introduction to the new science of astrobiology and the exploration of the Solar System. A careful discussion of a “second... more...
