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 l. a. costellazione di qualsiasi civiltà. l. a. 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 los angeles struttura del cosmo, l'origine della vita sulla Terra, l'evoluzione delle specie, los angeles nascita delle major 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 los angeles 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 college, Alan Cromer è negli united states un notissimo divulgatore, impegnato in prima personality according to los angeles diffusione della scienza nel proprio paese.

This results in an objective designation of " Para-Pseudocalanus " as a member of the intermediate group with respect to northsouth and neritic-oceanic gradients. Unfortunately, the lumping of Pseudocalanus with Paracalanus, a more southern form, makes the designation less useful. , 1963). Pseudocalanus occurs in and is used in the definition of the North Pacijic temperate region of Brodskii (1956). 8. Distribution uith respect to distance offshore Pseudocalanus is generally reckoned as a neritic copepod.

This seems to suggest that they may choose ” not to enter warmer or colder waters even when this is well within physiological tolerances. Of course temperature is very often correlated with other variables : with salinity gradients, although these often seem slight by comparison ; with food, which may accumulate in or near thermoclines; and indeed with almost anything that varies vertically. We shall later discuss the possible significance of temperature in vertical migration (pp. 175-179). , 1974).

Embryo The embryology of Pseudocalanus has not been investigated, but Corkett (1966) photographed the external features of eggs of Pseudo&nus. After Marshall and Orr (1955) the following stages of Pseudocalanw eggs were observed and photographed ; two-cell stage, segmentation-cavity stage, gastrulation stage. This is followed by a period when no detailed structure is visible until the developing nauplius can be seen, which occasionally twitches prior to hatching. The egg membranes are described in a later section (p.
