Barron s Science Study Dictionary

Fast reference is the key to this science dictionary, written and designed especially for junior and senior high school students. It presents 130 two-page spreads, each spread devoted to a scientific theme or general scientific topic. Themes are arranged alphabetically, starting with acids, bases, and alkalis, and ending with zany and curious science. Other themes cover a wide range of topics, including chemical equations, ecology, human reproduction, periodic table, and many more. Each theme contains approximately 15 scientific terms, clearly defined and, where helpful, supplemented with a diagram or illustration. For students looking directly for the meaning of a term rather than a general theme, the book’s Wordfinder section serves as an alphabetical index, listing every term and following it with the page number where it is explained. There are more than 2,500 words and definitions in total. Here’s a book that belongs in every secondary school library and science classroom. Avid science students will also want a copy for themselves to use as a supplement to their textbooks.

The Meaning of Science

What is science? Is it uniquely equipped to deliver universal truths? Or is it one of many disciplines - art, literature, religion - that offer different forms of understanding? In The Meaning of Science, Tim Lewens offers a provocative introduction to the philosophy of science, showing us for example what physics teaches us about reality, what biology teaches us about human nature, and what cognitive science teaches us about human freedom. Drawing on the insights of towering figures like Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn, Lewens shows how key questions in science matter, often in personal, practical and political ways.

Meaning

Published very shortly before his death in February 1976, Meaning is the culmination of Michael Polanyi's philosophic endeavors. With the assistance of Harry Prosch, Polanyi goes beyond his earlier critique of scientific "objectivity" to investigate meaning as founded upon the imaginative and creative faculties. Establishing that science is an inherently normative form of knowledge and that society gives meaning to science instead of being given the "truth" by science, Polanyi contends here that the foundation of meaning is the creative imagination. Largely through metaphorical expression in poetry, art, myth, and religion, the imagination is used to synthesize the otherwise chaotic and disparate elements of life. To Polanyi these integrations stand with those of science as equally valid modes of knowledge. He hopes this view of the foundation of meaning will restore validity to the traditional ideas that were undercut by modern science. Polanyi also outlines the general conditions of a free society that encourage varied approaches to truth, and includes an illuminating discussion of how to restore, to modern minds, the possibility for the acceptance of religion.

Explore The Real Meaning Of Entropy

What do you actually understand about the second law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy? Do you know that there is the greatest blunder ever in the history of science about this philosophy? In this book, the author shall show you the common misunderstanding about entropy and what true meaning it is. This blunder was initially and primarily brought on by a deep misunderstanding of the concept of entropy. Ironically, ignorance about the meaning of entropy has led some scientists to associate entropy with ignorance, and the Second Law with the "law of spreading ignorance." In his book, the author attempts to right these wrongs. He scrutinizes twelve misguided definitions and interpretations of entropy, brings order to the chaos, and finally lays out the true meaning of entropy in clear and accessible language anyone can understand.

It explains what forces have been acting to bring about evolution and re-examines human aims, values, and duties in the light of what science discloses of the nature of man and of his place in the history of life. The clearest and soundest exposition of the nature of the evolutionary process that has yet been written...The book may be read with equal profit and pleasure by the general reader, the student, and the expert.-Ashley Montagu, Isis This book is, without question, the best general work on the meaning of evolution to appear in our time.-The New York Times

Kabbalah Science and the Meaning of Life

Because Your Life Has Meaning Michael Laitman ... Yet, my attempts to research that question in the scientific framework were met with recurring rejections. I was told that science does not deal with these questions.

Kabbalah  Science and the Meaning of Life

Science explains the mechanisms that sustain life; Kabbalah explains why life exists. In Kabbalah, Science and the Meaning of Life, Rav Michael Laitman, PhD, a kabbalist and a scientist, combines science and spirituality in a captivating dialogue that reveals lifes meaning. For thousands of years kabbalists have been writing that the world is made of a single entity divided into separate beings. Today the cutting edge science of quantum physics states a very similar idea: that at the most fundamental level of matter, we are all literally one. Science proves that reality is affected by the observer who examines it. And so does Kabbalah. But Kabbalah says more: even the Creator of reality is found within the observer. In other words, God is inside of us, he doesnt exist anywhere else. When we pass away so does he. These earthshaking concepts and more are eloquently introduced so that even readers uneducated in Kabbalah or science will easily understand them. Therefore, if youre just a little curious about why you are here, what life means, and what you can do to enjoy it more, this is your book.

Kabbalah Science and the Meaning of Life

-- Kabbalah is a historic Jewish book of thought that delves into the depths of spiritual energy. -- This Kabbalah book is a masterpiece amongst its peers. This book brings the wealthy culture of Kabbalah to life for all to understand.

Kabbalah  Science and the Meaning of Life

Kabbalah, Science & the Meaning of Life traces the milestones of the evolution of science with which we are familiar, such as Newton's and Einstein's theories but goes further to present the science of Kabbalah as the basis for understanding the hidden parts of reality which scientists are now discovering. While other sciences research the definable world around us, Kabbalah teaches us how the spontaneous changes occurring within us affect our surrounding reality. The wisdom of Kabbalah enables us to monitor those changes and control them, and in so doing change our world for the better.
