Title:The Stars of Galileo Galilei and the Universal Knowledge of Athanasius Kircher [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roberto Buonanno
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In this fascinating book, the author traces the careers, ideas, discoveries, and inventions of two renowned scientists, Athanasius Kircher and Galileo Galilei, one a Jesuit, the other a sincere man of faith whose relations withthe Jesuits deteriorate d badly. The Author documents Kirchers often intuitive work in many areas, including translating the hieroglyphs, developing sundials, and inventing the magic lantern, and explains how Kircher was a forerunnerof Darwin in suggesting that animal species ev olve. Galileos work on scales, telescopes, and sun spots is mapped and discussed, and care is taken to place his discoveries within their cultural environment. While Galileo is withoutdoubt the winner in the comparison with Kircher, the latter achieved ex traordinary insights by unconventional means. For all Galileos fine work, the author believes that scientists do need to regain the power of dreaming,vindicating Kirchners view
Contents:The World Theatre
Watches and sunflowers rotating upon a motionless Earth
Jesuits, scales and telescopes
Light and shadows
Spots upon an unchangeable Sun

Title:How James Watt Invented the Copier [electronic resource] : Forgotten Inventions of Our Great Scientists
Author(s): Ren Schils
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Features 25 different scientists and the ideas which may not have made them famous, but made history Typically, we remember our greatest scientists from one single invention, one new formula or one incredible breakthrough.This narrow perspective does not give justice to the versatility of many scientists who also earned a reputation in other areas of science. James Watt, for instance, is known for inventing the steam engine, yet most people do not knowthat he also invented the copier. Alexander Graha m Bell of course invented the telephone, but only few know that he invented artificial breathing equipment, a prototype of the iron lung. Edmond Halley, whose name is associatedwith the comet that visits Earth every 75 years, produced the first mortality tables, used for life insurances. This entertaining book is aimed at anyone who enjoys reading about inventions and discoveries by the most creative minds.Detailed illustrations of the forgotten designs and ideas enrich the work throughout

Title:Geometries of Rhetoric [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert Kirkbride
Date:2010
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:We grasp and transform the world through interplays of quantification and qualification. The cross pollination of geometric and literary figures is deeply embedded in our cognitive habits, instruments of inquiry and theconstructed environment. Throug h time, thought has reflected on the visible processes and products of material craft to explain and train the invisible workings of the mind. Recursively, material craft embodies a tradition of splittingideas into categorical parts and compositional unit s for reassembly. Although the mathematical and verbal arts are often placed in contrast, human inventions manifest a weave of alphanumerics. Mythic parables, geometric proofs, memoryarts, poems, algorithms, buildings and cities emerge from the intercours e of measure and explication. This special issue of the Nexus Network Journal considers architectonic examples of past, present and potential geometries ofrhetoric
