L'eresia della scienza. L'essenziale per capire l'impresa scientifica

Trans. M. Pasi [Uncommon experience: The Heretical Nature of Science]

Religione e arte sembrano accompagnare l'avventura umana in ogni pace e in ogni luogo, sotto los angeles costellazione di qualsiasi civiltà. los angeles scienza invece è nata esclusivamente in Europa solo quattro secoli fa, ai tempi di Copernico e Vesalio, Keplero e Galileo. L'impresa scientifica, dunque , non è una componente necessaria di ogni sviluppo di civiltà; piuttosto è un fatto contingente, raro e prezioso, los angeles cui origine è dovuta alla casuale combinazione dei più bizzarri e improbabili fattori.

Con il suo stile semplice ed efficace, Alan Cromer delinea in capitoli chiari ed esaurienti l. a. struttura del cosmo, l'origine della vita sulla Terra, l'evoluzione delle specie, l. a. nascita delle best civiltà, fino a cogliere su questo sfondo gli aspetti peculiari del fenomeno "scienza". l. a. scienza è los angeles maggiore eresia che l'uomo abbia mai commesso contro il proprio egocentrismo, contro l'idea che l. a. natura sia profondamente coinvolta nella vicenda del genere umano, così piccola e irrisoria rispetto all'età e alla vastità dell ' universo. Raggiungere lo spirito critico, organizzarlo in una rete sistematica di studiosi, dare vita a un apparato tecnologicamente efficiente sono i tre aspetti principali di quell'eresia che, se molto deve ai padri fondatori della scienza all'inizio del Seicento, non minori debiti ha con quel miracolo greco che fiorì qualche secolo prima di Cristo nelle città-stato dell'Ellade e che non ha eguali né nelle antiche civiltà del Nilo o della Mezzaluna Fertile, né nella tradizione ebraica, e nemmeno nelle grandiose realizzazioni dell'India dei santoni e della Cina dei letterati confuciani. Professore di Fisica alla Northeastern collage, Alan Cromer è negli united states un notissimo divulgatore, impegnato in prima personality consistent with l. a. diffusione della scienza nel proprio paese.

It was used on 52% of problems where it was applicable and 32% of problems where it was not. The corresponding percentages for the children were 65 and 66% for children in the blocked problems condition, and 38 and 28% for children in the mixed problems condition. Thus, SCADSp generated slightly more appropriate generalization patterns than did the children, but like them showed inadequate discrimination between problems where the inversion principle did and did not apply. (6) Strategy use remained variable after discovery of the shortcut, even in the blocked problems condition.
