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, 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 los angeles struttura del cosmo, l'origine della vita sulla Terra, l'evoluzione delle specie, l. a. 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 l. a. diffusione della scienza nel proprio paese.

In essence then, the distinction between primary and higher-order consciousness is one between consciousness of the products of perception and consciousness of mental events in and of themselves. A simple-minded distinction between primary consciousness-ofself, which would occur when the self is the object of one's own perception, and higher-order self-consciousness, which would occur when the self is the object of one's own cognition, may help in unraveling the problem of self from a developmental perspective.

143). These experiences produce what seems to be a paradox: I "know" that the hammer in my hand is not really a part of me, but it still feels as if it were. The paradox is resolved by distinguishing among different forms of information and the selves that they establish. The hammer is no part of my conceptual self, but while I am hammering it does become part of my ecological self. The opposite effect can also be observed, though less often. Under some conditions, genuine parts of the biological body are not perceived as belonging to the self.
