    Emerging out of these contributions is a new natural philosophy, new ways of understanding physical systems, new ways of thinking that call into question many of our basic assumptions. Nature no more obeys the territorial divisions of scientific academic disciplines than do continents appear from space to be colored to reflect the national divisions of their human inhabitants. This intellectual electrum cuts the cloying taste of idealist and propositional philosophy with the sharp nectar of fact yet softens the edges of a technoscience that has arguably lost both its moral and its epistemological compass, the result in part of its being funded by governments and corporations whose relationship to the search for truth and its open dissemination can be considered problematic at best. Every example in this book is backed by current science. It will also be useful to the engineer or scientist seeking basic knowledge of the formation, properties and production of glass. Originally featured in August, with a closer look at the expert insights.

    And out of this emerges a highly efficient colony. Exercises are included at the end of the chapters. There is truth in this clever crack, but, as Niels Bohr impressed, while the opposite of a trivial truth is false, the opposite of a great truth is another great truth. The influence of genetic types of raw materials on the choice of melting technology is discussed. For me, the great scientific satoris, epiphanies, eurekas, and aha! Later, if you want to mull over a detail, you have to be able to refind a book, a passage, a quote, an article, a concept.

    For another peek at this gem, which is easily among my top three favorite books of the past decade, learn how to do the step-and-slide. But because of this, more than ever, it requires synthesis. Tammet writes: Borges here also makes several thought-provoking points. The same happens with two ants, a handful of ants.

There is truth in this clever crack, but, as Niels Bohr impressed, while the opposite of a trivial truth is false, the opposite of a great truth is another great truth.

An Introduction to Science and Technology Studies, 2nd Edition

The present volume gives a comprehensive overview on the latest developments in glass technology. He selects the colors on the squeegee, but the factual trace that the paint leaves on the canvas is to a large extent the outcome of chance.

We share the work of remembering, Introduction to Glass Science and Technology book argued, because it makes us collectively smarter — expanding our ability to understand the world around us. Faced with the problem of a near endless number of potential categories, we are inclined to choose from a few — those most tried and tested within our particular culture.

Second, defining a set owes more to art than it does to science. In these paintings, he applies the oil paint on the canvas by means of a large squeegee. Phase transformations of quartz-silica glass and the influence of the impurities of melting furnaces and furnace material is examined.

Overlapping topics[ edit ] As academic fields, science and technology are often grouped with engineering and mathematicsas the STEM fields.

My consolation is that this deficiency of mine is quite human. One of his most fascinating and important points has to do with our outsourcing of memory — or, more specifically, our increasingly Introduction to Glass Science and Technology book, search-engine-powered skills of replacing the retention of knowledge in our own brains with the on-demand access to knowledge in the collective brain of the internet.

You are missing the events unfolding in your body, in the distance, and right in front of you. The quality of our quantity became something we could not escape. Language: English. This introductory text is ideal for undergraduates in materials science, ceramics or inorganic chemistry.

Exercises are included at the end of the chapters. Take your learning further Making the decision to study can be a big step, which is why you'll want a trusted University. Each time you blow a kiss to the world, you spread pollen that might grow to be a new plant.

For the majority of human history, technological improvements were achieved by chance, trial and error, or spontaneous inspiration.

On the surface, this may appear like the evident and worrisome shrinkage of our mental capacity. We are not blinded, but we have blinders. Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of explanations and predictions about nature and the universe.

Additional chapters discuss the most important properties of glasses, including discussion of physical, optical, electrical, chemical and mechanical properties. Like Buckminster Fuller, who vehemently opposed specializationSagan attests to the synergetic value of intellectual cross-pollinationattesting to the idea that true breakthroughs in science require cross-disciplinary connections and originality consists of linking up ideas whose connection was not previously suspected : It is true that science requires analysis and that it has fractured into microdisciplines.

Only those items which I notice shape my mind. So when a coincidence happens, that coincidence had to work awfully hard to escape the system.Introduction to Glass Science and Technology.
