Neither Physics nor Chemistry: A History of Quantum Chemistry (Transformations: Studies in the History of Science and Technology)

By Kostas Gavroglu, Ana Simões

Quantum chemistry--a self-discipline that's not really physics, no longer really chemistry, and never really utilized mathematics--emerged as a box of analysis within the Nineteen Twenties. It was once observed through such phrases as mathematical chemistry, subatomic theoretical chemistry, molecular quantum mechanics, and chemical physics until eventually the group agreed at the designation of quantum chemistry. In Neither Physics Nor Chemistry, Kostas Gavroglu and Ana Simões study the evolution of quantum chemistry into an independent self-discipline, tracing its improvement from the e-book of early papers within the Nineteen Twenties to the dramatic adjustments caused via pcs within the Seventies. The authors specialize in the tradition that emerged from the artistic synthesis of a number of the traditions of chemistry, physics, and arithmetic. They research the techniques, practices, languages, and associations of this new tradition in addition to the folk who verified it, from such pioneers as Walter Heitler and Fritz London, Linus Pauling, and Robert Sanderson Mulliken, to later figures together with Charles Alfred Coulson, Raymond Daudel, and Per-Olov Löwdin. all through, the authors emphasize six issues: epistemic facets and the dilemmas brought on by a number of techniques; social concerns, together with educational politics, the influence of textbooks, and the forging of alliances; the contingencies that arose at each level of the advancements in quantum chemistry; the adjustments within the box whilst desktops have been on hand to accomplish the terribly bulky calculations required; concerns within the philosophy of technological know-how; and varied types of reasoning.

The Very Idea of Modern Science: Francis Bacon and Robert Boyle

By Joseph Agassi

This e-book is a learn of the clinical revolution as a circulation of novice technological know-how. It describes the ideology of the beginner medical societies because the philosophy of the Enlightenment circulation and their social constitution and how they made smooth technology this type of awesome establishment. It additionally indicates what used to be lacking within the clinical association of technological know-how and why it gave solution to specialist technological know-how in phases. specifically the e-book experiences the contributions of Sir Francis Bacon and of the Hon. Robert Boyle to the increase of recent technology. The philosophy of induction is notoriously troublesome, but its nice asset is that it expressed the view of the Enlightenment move approximately technology. This explains the ambivalence that we nonetheless convey in the direction of Sir Francis Bacon whose radicalism and imaginative and prescient of natural and utilized technology nonetheless an important point of the material of society. eventually, the ebook discusses Boyle's philosophy, his contract with and dissent from Bacon and how he single-handedly educated a crowd of poorly proficient English aristocrats and rendered them into a military of capable novice researchers.

The Unknown as an Engine for Science: An Essay on the Definite and the Indefinite (The Frontiers Collection)

By Hans J. Pirner

This publication explores the boundaries of our wisdom. the writer indicates how uncertainty and indefiniteness not just outline the borders confining our realizing, yet how they feed into the method of discovery and support to thrust back those borders. beginning with physics the writer collects examples from economics, neurophysiology, heritage, ecology and philosophy.

The first half exhibits how info is helping to minimize indefiniteness. figuring out rests on our skill to discover the correct context, during which we localize an issue as some degree in a community of connections. New parts needs to be mixed with the previous components of the prevailing complicated wisdom process, with a purpose to revenue maximally from the knowledge. An try out is made to quantify the worth of data by means of its skill to minimize indefiniteness.

The moment half explains the way to deal with indefiniteness with tools from fuzzy common sense, selection conception, hermeneutics and semiotics. it isn't enough that the hot point appears to be like in an scan, one additionally has to discover a theoretical explanation for its lifestyles.

Honeybee Democracy

By Thomas D. Seeley

A striking and richly illustrated account of clinical discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings jointly, for the 1st time, many years of Seeley's pioneering study to inform the superb tale of apartment searching and democratic debate one of the honeybees.

within the overdue spring and early summer season, as a bee colony turns into overcrowded, a 3rd of the hive remains in the back of and rears a brand new queen, whereas a swarm of hundreds of thousands departs with the previous queen to supply a daughter colony. Seeley describes how those bees review power nest websites, put up for sale their discoveries to each other, interact in open deliberation, pick out a last web site, and navigate together--as a swirling cloud of bees--to their new domestic. Seeley investigates how evolution has honed the decision-making equipment of honeybees over thousands of years, and he considers similarities among the ways in which bee swarms and primate brains approach details. He concludes that what works good for bees may also paintings good for individuals: any decision-making team may still include people with shared pursuits and mutual admire, a leader's effect might be minimized, debate can be relied upon, different strategies may be sought, and the bulk could be counted on for a in charge resolution.

a magnificent exploration of animal habit, Honeybee Democracy exhibits that decision-making teams, no matter if honeybee or human, could be smarter than even the neatest contributors in them.
