The Copernican Revolution  Planetary Astronomy in The Development of western Thought, Kuhn, Thomas S
6 Kuhn, Thomas S The Copernican Revolution Planetary Astronomy in The Development of western Thought
New York Vintage 1959 Paperback Fair 
Good reading copy. Writing on inside cover-pencil. Wear on cover has been replaced with black ink (refurbished) . Some pages have highlighting. Binding is tight. ; Book Description Spine has some signs of creasing. Pages are not marred by folds. Covers are square and with minor wear as noted. The Copernican Revolution refers, to begin with, to the new astronomical theories proposed by Copernicus in 1532 to explain more efficiently than had the ancient Greeks the movements of the heavenly bodies. But it also refers to the vast consequences for mans conception of his place in the universe that followed, as it was gradually demonstrated that our earth held no unique position as the central place of the universe, that, as Galilea said 'it moved.' In time, it appeared that everything moved with it: theology, philosophy, morality, and art. Mr. Kuhn, a scientist, historian, and teacher, has here told the story of this great upheaval, combining an unequaled knowledge of the scientifiic controversy itself, with a rich detailing of its consequences for the various provinces of thought. ; Mass Market PB; B&W Illustrations; 7.30 X 4.60 X 0.70 inches; 297 pages

The Presence of the Past  Morphic Resonance and the Habits of Nature, Sheldrake, Rupert
9 Sheldrake, Rupert The Presence of the Past Morphic Resonance and the Habits of Nature
Rochester, Vermont Park Street Press 1995 089281537X / 9780892815371 First Edition; First Printing Softcover Very Good 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. Rupert Sheldrake's theory of morphic resonance challenges the fundamental assumptions of modern science. An accomplished biologist, Sheldrake proposes that all natural systems, from crystals to human society, inherit a collective memory that influences their form and behavior. Rather than being ruled by fixed laws, nature is essentially habitual. The Presence of the Past lays out the evidence for Sheldrake's controversial theory, exploring its implications in the fields of biology, physics, psychology, and sociology. At the same time, Sheldrake delivers a stinging critique of conventional scientific thinking. In place of the mechanistic, neo-Darwinian worldview he offers a new understanding of life, matter, and mind. ; B&W Illustrations; 8.80 X 5.80 X 1.10 inches; 416 pages
