Theory of the Earth
Theory of the Earth
We need a new philosophy of the earth. Geological time used to refer to slow and gradual processes, but today we are watching land sink into the sea and forests transform into deserts. We can even see the creation of new geological strata made of plastic, chicken bones, and other waste that could remain in the fossil record for millennia or...

Waste Treatment in the Process Industries
Waste Treatment in the Process Industries

Increasing demand on industrial capacity has, as an unintended consequence, an accompanying increase in harmful and hazardous wastes. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive reference on the technologies and strategies available for waste treatment in specific industries, four esteemed editors gathered to produce the highly popular Handbook of...

Faith and Place: An Essay in Embodied Religious Epistemology
Faith and Place: An Essay in Embodied Religious Epistemology
Faith and Place takes knowledge of place as a basis for thinking about the relationship between religious belief and our embodied life.

Recent epistemology of religion has appealed to various secular analogues for religious belief - especially analogues drawn from sense perception and scientific theory construction. These approaches tend

Collaborative Geographic Information Systems
Collaborative Geographic Information Systems
Many advances in the integration of group spatial modeling, geographic information systems (GIS), and the Internet have occurred in recent years; however, there is a lack of materials to highlight the transdisciplinary characteristics and impacts of this convergence while providing a uniform and consistent treatment of this expanding field of...
Head First Physics: A learner's companion to mechanics and practical physics
Head First Physics: A learner's companion to mechanics and practical physics

Wouldn't it be great if there were a physics book that showed you how things work instead of telling you how? Finally, with Head First Physics, there is. This comprehensive book takes the stress out of learning mechanics and practical physics by providing a fun and engaging experience, especially for students who "just...

ThermoPoetics: Energy in Victorian Literature and Science
ThermoPoetics: Energy in Victorian Literature and Science

In ThermoPoetics, Barri Gold sets out to show us how analogous, intertwined, and mutually productive poetry and physics may be. Charting the simultaneous emergence of the laws of thermodynamics in literature and in physics that began in the 1830s, Gold finds that not only can science influence literature, but literature can influence...

Ecological Connectivity among Tropical Coastal Ecosystems
Ecological Connectivity among Tropical Coastal Ecosystems

Mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and coral reefs are circumtropical ecosystems that are highly productive, and provide many important biological functions and economic services. These ecosystems cover large surface areas in the shallow tropical coastal seascape but have suffered from serious human degradation, especially in the last few decades....

The Character of Physical Law (Messenger Lectures, 1964)
The Character of Physical Law (Messenger Lectures, 1964)

In these Messenger Lectures, originally delivered at Cornell University and recorded for television by the BBC, Richard Feynman offers an overview of selected physical laws and gathers their common features into one broad principle of invariance. He maintains at the outset that the importance of a physical law is not "how clever...
