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

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

Religione e arte sembrano accompagnare l'avventura umana in ogni pace e in ogni luogo, sotto l. a. 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, l. a. 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". los angeles 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.

The result shows that farmland extension in that region is close to extreme due to the restriction of water supply. With the proposed approach, we can get a better understanding of the impacts of human activities or natural resources on land cover change. Q. hk E. Chuvieco et al. V. 2010 17 18 Q. Zhou and B. 1 Introduction As a land surface process, landuse and land cover change (LUCC) emerged in researches on global environmental changes has been studied for several decades (Lambin et al. 2006).

The LR model predicts that these growth patterns will be different for various parts of SMA. Not surprisingly, it that forecasted results shows that the model predicts that urban expansion occurs along build-up areas. It was concluded that despite LR’s lack o temporal dynamics, it was spatially explicit and allowed much deeper understanding of the forces driving the growth and the formation of the urban spatial pattern.

Zhou and B. 1 Introduction As a land surface process, landuse and land cover change (LUCC) emerged in researches on global environmental changes has been studied for several decades (Lambin et al. 2006). It was first recognized that land cover change modifies surfaceatmosphere energy exchanges and thus influences global climate (Charney and Stone 1975; Otterman 1974).
