BOOK EXCERPT:

Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book for the reader who wants to learn what physics is all about - and for the person who has taken a few physics courses in high school, but wants to learn more about its diverse theories and historical development. Even if you have taken college-level physics courses, you might not necessarily know the fascinating history of physics development, and the backgrounds of physicists who contributed to that development, such as Kepler, Newton, the Bernoulli family, Planck, Bohr, Einstein, von Neumann and Oppenheimer, to name only a few. And of course, if you want to learn why world civilization still suffers from a hiatus in the advancement of science in general - and physics in particular - this is the book for you. In 2006, Allan Karson received enthusiastic feedback for his book idea, and was told that Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book that is very much needed. Now, 10 years later, this work is finally ready. - This book is written for intelligent, inquiring people; it does not talk down to them. - This book is exciting. Each chapter presents a different historical time period and a different physics discipline. This changing environment presents a continuing challenge. There are no long, non-factual, non-interesting or dull descriptions. - This book keeps the quantity of math equations to a minimum. Only one equation is presented and explained in detail: Einstein's fascinating equation that transforms how people, objects and clocks appear to change when they are moving at speeds that approach the speed of light. - There are no 'heavy' descriptions of physics theories; charts are used to provide supporting explanations and description points in charts usually consist of one-liners. - This book's sources have been scrupulously read to assure correct and complete details. Dive in to the mesmerizing world of the history and future of physics with Science Slept Sixteen Centuries.

BOOK EXCERPT:

An engrossing examination of the science behind the little-known world of sleep. Like many of us, journalist David K. Randall never gave sleep much thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking. One midnight crash into a hallway wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep. In Dreamland, Randall explores the research that is investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third of our lives. Taking readers from military battlefields to children’s bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn't as simple as it seems. Why did the results of one sleep study change the bookmakers’ odds for certain Monday Night Football games? Do women sleep differently than men? And if you happen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, does that count as murder? This book is a tour of the often odd, sometimes disturbing, and always fascinating things that go on in the peculiar world of sleep. You’ll never look at your pillow the same way again.

Contrary to the view that relations between religion and the sciences in the sixteenth century were ridden with bitter conflict, the studies here indicate the ways in which religious conviction Jewish, Roman Catholic or Protestant and the development of the natural sciences and medicine influenced each other.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The problems I address in this book are among the least studied in the soci ology of science and knowledge. Part I is a critique of the claim that there are parallels between ancient mysticism and modern physics, and a sociological analysis of this claim as a strategy in intellectual conflict. This study must. ultimately be rooted more firmly in a: type of sociology of knowledge that is just now beginning to crystallize (and which I discuss in Chapter 7), and a sociology of religion that is not so much unknown as underground, and timid, that is, a non-worshipful materialist sociology of religion. My study of physics-mysticism parallelism is a vehicle for exploring epistemic strategies. I thus conclude Part I by sketching a materialist, emancipatory epistemic strategy. My conclusion brings together a number of ideas formulated by myself and others over the past several years, but stops short of a systematic synthesis. A more integrated and coherent "model" than what I can sketch here must wait on the results of research now in progress in the critical (as opposed to apologetic or worshipful) sociology of knowledge.
