What is this Thing Called Science?, A.F. Chalmers
2 A.F. Chalmers What is this Thing Called Science?
University Of Queensland Press 226834 Australia 1982 0702218316 / 9780702218316 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket What is this Thing called Science? has become something of a classic the world over (it's available in nineteen languages). Each decade Alan Chalmers has drawn on his experience as a teacher and researcher to improve and update the text. The most significant feature of this new, fourth, edition is the addition of an extensive postscript, in which Chalmers uses the results of his recent research into the history of atomism to illustrate and enliven key themes in the philosophy of science. Identifying the qualitative difference between knowledge of atoms as it figures in contemporary science and metaphysical speculations about atoms common in philosophy since the time of Democritus proves to be a highly revealing and instructive way to pinpoint key features of the answer to the question 'What is this thing called science?' This new edition ensures that the book holds its place as the leading introduction to the philosophy of science for the foreseeable future 179 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
5 Al Gore An Inconvenient Truth
Bloomsbury 230179 London 2006 0747589062 / 9780747589068 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket "An Inconvenient Truth" Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling "Earth in the Balance" is being published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert brings together leading-edge research from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness and with humor, too that the fact of global warming is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book written in an accessible, entertaining style will open the eyes of even the most skeptical." 325 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

Copernicus Books 227895 New York USA 1997 First Edition 0387947949 / 9780387947945 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Over the last few centuries, science has usurped domains of knowledge that were once the province of religion. At the same time, however, both science and religion have enforced strict boundaries throughout. Science can describe the world to us, but it cannot tell us about meaning or values. This is a compelling case for breaching this barrier - in effect, for a reunification of science and religion. 329 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Foreman - Aspects of Task and Structure, David Dunkerley
18 David Dunkerley The Foreman - Aspects of Task and Structure
Routledge 226570 USA 1975 0710081588 / 9780710081582 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good The foreman is usually regarded as a filter in a chain of command in industrial organizations. In this book, however, the author suggests that this view is not adequate, and he proposes instead a model of analysis which employs a systems perspective. The role of the foreman is seen in terms of the interaction of three sub-systems representing the organization, the group and the individual. The book is based on the work of researchers from many disciplines and employs a sociological framework to account for the peculiar strains, conflict and ambiguities associated with the foreman's role. 192 pages. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Science::Evolution; Science & Technology; ISBN: 0710081588. ISBN/EAN: 9780710081582. Inventory No: 226570.

Time To Change, David Suzuki
20 David Suzuki Time To Change
Allen & Unwin 225143 Australia 1993 1863735690 / 9781863735698 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket The 1990s, Suzuki advocates, is a time for change. Examples he examines are, for instance: the garbage clogging our cities, the disappearance of fish and fisheries from our coasts, the changes to our waterways, the world-wide starvation and global warming. David Suzuki considers the realms of science, politics and economics to find not only the source of many of our problems, but also the ground on which we can, and cannot, place our hope for the future. Although the acts and words of individual scientists, politicians and economists can give us some reason for optimism, Suzuki warns us against a blind faith in these pillars of modern society. He lays bare our comfortable assumptions before revealing the source of his hope for the future. David Suzuki offers little comfort for those who feel that the problem lies with others or that it can be solved by other people or groups. Yet while stressing the seriousness of our plight, he shows us how and where to make changes that matter for all our futures. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.
