Title: | Advances in Natural Deduction [electronic resource] : A Celebration of Dag Prawitz's Work |
Author(s): |
Luiz Carlos Pereira Edward Hermann Haeusler Valeria de Paiva |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This collection of papers celebrating the contributions of Swedish logician Dag Prawitz to Proof Theory, has been assembled from those presented at the Natural Deduction conference organized in Rio de Janeiro to honour hisseminal research. Dag Prawit zs work forms the basis of intuitionistic type theory and his inversion principle constitutes the foundation of most modern accounts of proof-theoretic semantics in Logic, Linguistics andTheoretical Computer Science. The range of contributions includes ma terial on the extension of natural deduction with higher-order rules, as opposed to higher-order connectives, and a paper discussing the application of naturaldeduction rules to dealing with equality in predicate calculus. The volume continues with a key chapter summarizing work on the extension of the Curry-Howard isomorphism (itself a by-product of the work on natural deduction), viamethods of category theory that have been successfully applied to linear logic, as well as many other contributions from h ighly regarded authorities. With an illustrious group of contributors addressing a wealth of topics andapplications, this volume is a valuable addition to the libraries of academics in the multiple disciplines whose development has been given added scope by the methodologies supplied by natural deduction. The volume is representative ofthe rich and varied directions that Prawitz work has inspired in the area of natural deduction. |

Title: | The Weight of the Vacuum [electronic resource] : A Scientific History of Dark Energy |
Author(s): |
Helge S Kragh James M Overduin |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the discovery of cosmic acceleration due to dark energy, a discovery that is all the more perplexing as nobody knows what dark energy actually is. We put the modern concept ofcosmological vacuum energy into historical context and show how it grew out of disparate roots in quantum mechanics (zero-point energy) and relativity theory (the cosmological constant, Einstein's greatest blunder). These twoinfluences have remained strangely aloof and still co-exi st in an uneasy alliance that is at the heart of the greatest crisis in theoretical physics, the cosmological-constant problem |

Title: | A Brief History of String Theory [electronic resource] : From Dual Models to M-Theory |
Author(s): |
Dean Rickles |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | During its forty year lifespan, string theory has always had the power to divide, being called both a 'theory of everything' and a 'theory of nothing'. Critics have even questioned whether it qualifies as a scientific theory atall. This book adopts a n objective stance, standing back from the question of the truthor falsity of string theory and instead focusing on how it came to be and how it came to occupy its present position in physics. An unexpectedlyrich history is revealed, with deep connections to our most well-established physical theories. Fully self-contained and written in a lively fashion, the book will appeal to a wide variety of readers from novice to specialist |

Rodolfo Figari Alessandro Teta |

Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In the original formulation of quantum mechanics the existence of a precise border between a microscopic world, governed by quantum mechanics, and a macroscopic world, described by classical mechanics was assumed. Moderntheoretical and experimental p hysics has moved that border several times, carefully investigating its definition and making available to observation larger and larger quantum systems. The presentbook examines a paradigmatic case ofthe transition from quantum to classical behavior:A qu antum particle is revealed in a trackingchamber as a trajectory obeying the laws of classical mechanics.

Title: | Quantum Objects [electronic resource] : Non-Local Correlation, Causality and Objective Indefiniteness in the Quantum World |
Author(s): |
Gregg Jaeger |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This monograph identifiesthe essential characteristics of the objects described by current quantum theoryand considers their relationship to space-time.In the process, it explicates the senses in which quantum objects may beconsistently considered to have parts of which they may be composed or into which they may be decomposed. The book also demonstrates the degree to which reduction is possible in quantum mechanics, showing it to be related to theobjective indefiniteness of quantum properties and th e strong non-local correlations that can occur betweenthephysical quantities of quantum subsystems. Careful attention is paid to the relationships among such propertycorrelations, physical causation, probability, and symmetry in quantum theory. In this wa y, the text identifies and clarifies the conceptual grounds underlying the unique nature of many quantum phenomena |

Title: | Reductionism, Emergence and Levels of Reality [electronic resource] : The Importance of Being Borderline |
Author(s): |
Sergio Chibbaro Lamberto Rondoni Angelo Vulpiani |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Scientists have always attempted to explain the world in terms of a few unifying principles. In the fifth century B.C. Democritus boldly claimed that reality is simply a collection of indivisible and eternal parts or atoms. Overthe centuries his doct rine has remained a landmark, and much progress in physics is due to its distinction between subjective perception and objective reality. This book discusses theory reduction in physics, which states that thewhole is nothing more than the sum of its parts : the properties of things are directly determined by their constituent parts. Reductionism deals with the relation between different theories that address different levels of reality, anduses extrapolations to apply that relation in different sciences. R eality shows a complex structure of connections, and the dream of a unified interpretation of all phenomena in several simple laws continues to attract anyone withgenuine philosophical and scientific interests. If the most radical reductionist point of vi ew is correct, the relationship between disciplines is strictly inclusive: chemistry becomes physics, biology becomes chemistry, and so on.Eventually, only one science, indeed just a single theory, would survive, with all others merging in the Theory of E verything. Is the current coexistence of different sciences a mere historical venture which will end when the Theory ofEverything has been established? Can there be a unified description of nature? Rather than an analysis of full reductionism, this book f ocuses on aspects of theory reduction in physics and stimulates reflection on related questions:is there any evidence of actual reduction? Are the examples used in the philosophy of science too simplistic? What has been endangered by the search for (the) ultimate truth? Has the dream of reductionist reason created any monsters?Is big science one such monster? What is the point of embedding science Y within science X, if predictions cannot be made on t |

Title: | Euclid Vindicated from Every Blemish [electronic resource] : Edited and Annotated by Vincenzo De Risi. Translated by G.B. Halsted and L. Allegri |
Author(s): |
Gerolamo Saccheri Vincenzo Risi |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This first complete English language edition of Euclides vindicatus presents a corrected and revised edition of the classical English translation of Saccheri's text by G.B. Halsted. It is complemented with a historicalintroduction on the geometrical environment of the time and a detailed commentary that helps to understand the aims and subtleties of the work. Euclides vindicatus, written by the Jesuit mathematician Gerolamo Saccheri, was publishedin Milan in 1733. In it, Saccheri attempted to reform elementary geometry in two important directions: a demonstration of the famous Parallel Postulate, and the theory of proportions. Both topics were of pivotal importance in themathematics of the time. In particular, the Parallel Postulate had escaped demon stration since the first attempts at it in the Classical Age, and several books on the topic were published in the Early Modern Age. At the same time, thetheory of proportion was the most important mathematical tool of the Galilean School in its pursuit o f the mathematization of nature. Saccheri's attempt to prove the Parallel Postulate is today considered the most importantbreakthrough in geometry in the 18th century, as he was able to develop for hundreds of pages and dozens of theorems a system in geom etry that denied the truth of the postulate (in the attempt to find a contradiction). This can beregarded as the first system of non-Euclidean geometry. Its later developments by Lambert, Bolyai, Lobachevsky and Gauss eventually opened the way to contempo rary geometry. Occupying a unique position in the literature of mathematicalhistory, Euclid Vindicated from Every Blemish will be of high interest to historians of mathematics as well as historians of philosophy interested in the development of non-Euclid ean geometries |

Title: | The Beginning and the End [electronic resource] : The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective |
Author(s): |
Clment Vidal |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end, or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, ifany, in cosmic evolu tion? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe'sdeepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the f ine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, heargues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution, and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework thatshould stir debate for years to come |

Title: | The Art of Science [electronic resource] : From Perspective Drawing to Quantum Randomness |
Author(s): |
Rossella Lupacchini Annarita Angelini |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Like linear perspective, complex numbers and probability are notable discoveries of the Renaissance. History has been quick to recognize the crucial impact of linear perspective on painting, but reluctant to acknowledge theimportance of complex numbe rs and probability. Both were treated with a great deal of suspicion by the scientific establishment and overlooked for many years. It was only in the twentieth century, when quantum theory defined the notionof complex probability amplitude, that complex numbers merged with probability and transformed the image of the physical world. From a theoretical point of view, however, the space opened to painting by linear perspective and thespace opened to science by complex numbers are equally valuable and share significant characteristics. By exploring that common ground, The Art of Science will lead the reader to complement Leonardos vision of painting as a scienceand to see science as an art. Its aim is to restore a visual dimension to mathematical sciences an element dulled, if not obscured, by historians, philosophers, and scientists themselves |

Title: | Alien Encounter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel |
Author(s): |
Dirk Schulze-Makuch |
Date: | 2014 |
Edition: | 2nd ed. 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | It has been nearly 100 years since the Apollo moon landings, when Jack and Vladimir, two astronauts on a mission to Venus, discover a mysterious void related to indigenous life on the planet. Subsequently more voids are detectedon Earth, Mars, Titan, and, quite ominously, inside a planetoid emerging from the Kuiper belt. Jack is sent to investigate the voids in the Solar System and intercept the planetoid - which, as becomes increasingly clear, is inhabitedby alien life forms. Jack and his crew will have little time to understand their alien biochemistry, abilities, behavior patterns, resilience, and technology, but also how these life forms relate to the voids. Humankind's firstencounter with these exotic life forms couldn't be more fateful, becomin g a race against time to save life on Earth and to reveal the true nature of the voids, which seem to be intrinsically related to life and the universe itself. Inthis novel, the author combines many topics related to state-of-the-art research in the field of astrobiology with fictional elements to produce a thrilling page turner. This new version significantly develops the astrobiologicaldenouement of the plot and features an extensive non-technical appendix where the underlying science is presented and d iscussed. From the reviews of the first edition (Voids of Eternity: Alien Encounter) Here's a thrilling yarn inthe best hard SF tradition of Asimov, James Hogan, and Ben Bova, written by a scientist who knows all about the possibilities of life in the so lar system and beyond. Dirk Schulze-Makuch weaves into his book all the astrobiologicalthemes he's worked on in recent years -- speculation about creatures in the atmosphere of Venus and on and under the surface of Mars and Titan -- together with some wel l-informed Eastern philosophy and a cracking good space battle. Agreat first novel from a rising talent. Highly recommended. David Darling, on amazon.com, 2009 The research interests of Dr. Schulz |

Note: | This book is a collection of engaging and intriguing essays that describe an intellectual journey from the beginning to the end of universe. It is the product of an ongoing effort to know our place in the universe and share withreaders the underpinni ngs of the magnificent cosmos where we are given a chance to exist only very briefly. The essays incorporate a group of challenging ideas that modern physics and cosmology are struggling to understand, in a uniqueway that incorporates mythological, religi ous, and philosophical perspectives. The author relies on a simple and powerful philosophy that we are part of the universe and the universe is part of us. This wonderful collection ofessays provides a journey through the current frontiers of modern astr ophysics and cosmology. Its depiction of the most important unsolved mysteries about our place in the Universe is peppered with original insights and philosophicalperspectives, making it an intellectual treat. Avi Loeb, Professor, Harvard University Chai r, Astronomy Department Director, Institute for Theory and Computation In these essays, Santhosh Mathew combines an impressive knowledgeof physics with an eye to its connection to Eastern philosophy as well as its relevance to our life in modern times. I n his thoughtful investigation of natural phenomena and their relationship to universal philosophical truths, hetakes up where The Tao of Physics leaves off. You may well find his keen curiosity about the natural world and our place in it infectious. Car ole Bugge (C. E. Lawrence), author of Strings In this informative assemblage ofengaging essays Santhosh Mathew takes the reader on a deeply human quest for truth, a truly inspiring journey that boldly addresses the big questions of what the Universe is, how it came into being, and where it may be heading. Thisexciting adventure is as much a rich scientific history of elegant physics, mathematics, and cosmology as it is a philosophical and |

Title: | Adaptive Logics for Defeasible Reasoning [electronic resource] : Applications in Argumentation, Normative Reasoning and Default Reasoning |
Author(s): |
Christian Straer |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book presents adaptive logics as an intuitive and powerful framework for modeling defeasible reasoning. It examines various contexts in which defeasible reasoning is useful and offers a compact introduction into adaptivelogics. The author first familiarizes readers with defeasible reasoning, the adaptive logics framework, combinations of adaptive logics, and a range of useful meta-theoretic properties. He then offers a systematic study of adaptivelogics based on various applications. The book pr esents formal models for defeasible reasoning stemming from different contexts, such as default reasoning, argumentation, and normative reasoning. It highlights various meta-theoreticadvantages of adaptive logics over other logics or logical frameworks th at model defeasible reasoning. In this way the book substantiates the status of adaptive logics as a generic formal framework for defeasible reasoning |

Title: | Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam [electronic resource] : Research, Teaching, Life |
Author(s): |
Alexander Pechenkin |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This biography of the famous Soviet physicist Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam (1889-1944), who became a Professor at Moscow State University in 1925, describes his contributions to both physics and technology, as well as discussingthe scientific communi ty which formed around him, usually called the Mandelstam school. Mandelstams life story is thereby placed in its proper cultural context. The following more general issues are taken under consideration: theimpact of German scientific culture on Russian s cience the problems and fates of Russian intellectuals during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary years the formation of the Soviet Academy of Sciences and transformation of thesystem of higher education in the USSR during the 1920's and 1930's.The a uthor shows that Mandelstams fundamental writings and his lectures notes allow to reconstruct his philosophy of science and his approach to the social andethical functions of science and science education. That reconstruction is enhanced through extensive use of hitherto unpublished archival material as well as the transcripts of personal interviews conducted by the author |

Title: | Leniewski's Systems of Logic and Foundations of Mathematics [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Rafal Urbaniak |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This meticulous critical assessment of the ground-breaking work of philosopher Stanislaw Leniewski focuses exclusively on primary texts and explores the full range of output by one of the master logicians of the Lvov-Warsawschool. The authors nuanced survey eschews secondary commentary, analyzing Leniewski's core philosophical views and evaluating the formulations that were to have such a profound influence on the evolution of mathematical logic. One of the undisputed leaders of the cohort of brillia nt logicians that congregated in Poland in the early twentieth century, Leniewski was a guide and mentor to a generation of celebrated analytical philosophers (Alfred Tarski washis PhD student). His primary achievement was a system of foundational mathema tical logic intended as an alternative to the Principia Mathematica of Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell. Its three strandsprotothetic,ontology, and mereology, are detailed in discrete sections of this volume, alongside a wealth other chapters g rouped to provide the fullest possible coverage of Leniewskis academic output. With material on his earlyphilosophical views, his contributions to set theory and his work on nominalism and higher-order quantification, this book offers a uniquely expansive critical commentary on one of analytical philosophys great pioneers |

Note: | Can a computer have a soul? Are religion and science mutually exclusive?Is there really such a thing as free will?If you could time travel to visit Jesus, would you (and should you)?For hundreds of years, philosophers,scientists, and science fiction writers have pondered these questions and many more. In Holy Sci-Fi!, popular writer Paul Nahin explores the fertile and sometimes uneasy relationship between science fiction and religion. With a scopespanning the history of religion, philosophy, and lite rature, Nahin follows religious themes in science fiction from Feynman to Foucault, and from Asimov to Aristotle. An intriguing journey through popular and well-loved books andstories, Holy Sci-Fi! shows how sci-fi has informed humanity's attitudes toward s our faiths, our future, and ourselves |

Publisher: | Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Mathematics is a poem. It is a lucid, sensual, precise exposition of beautiful ideas directed to specific goals. It is worthwhile to have as broad a cross-section of mankind as possible be conversant with what goes on inmathematics. Just as everyone knows that the Internet is a powerful and important tool for communication, so everyone should know that the Poincar conjecture gives us important information about the shape of our universe. Just asevery responsible citizen realizes that the mass-product ion automobile was pioneered by Henry Ford, just so everyone should know that the P/NP problem has implications for security and data manipulation that will affect everyone. Thisbook endeavors to tell the story of the modern impact of mathematics, of its trials and triumphs and insights, in language that can be appreciated by a broad audience. It endeavors to show what mathematics means for our lives, how itimpacts all of us, and what new thoughts it should cause us to entertain. It introduces new vistas of mathematical ideas and shares the excitement of new ideas freshly minted. It discusses the significance and impact of these ideas,and gives them meaning that will travel well and cause people to reconsider their place in the universe. Mathematics is on e of mankind's oldest disciplines. Along with philosophy, it has shaped the very modus of human thought. And itcontinues to do so. To be unaware of modern mathematics is to be miss out on a large slice of life. It is to be left out of essential modern dev elopments. We want to address this point, and do something about it. This is a book to makemathematics exciting for people of all interests and all walks of life. Mathematics is exhilarating, it is ennobling, it is uplifting, and it is fascinating. We wan t to show people this part of our world, and to get them to travel newpaths |

Note: | Newtons classical physics and its underlying ontology are loaded with several metaphysical hypotheses that cannot be justified by rational reasoning nor by experimental evidence. Furthermore, it is well known that some ofthese hypotheses are not cont ained in the great theories of Modern Physics, such as the theory of Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. This book shows that, on the basis of Newtons classical physics and by rationalreconstruction, the theory of Special Relativity as well as Quant um Mechanics can be obtained by partly eliminating or attenuating the metaphysical hypotheses. Moreover, it is shown that these reconstructions do not require additionalhypotheses or new experimental results. In the second edition the rational reconstruct ions are completed with respect to General Relativity and Cosmology. In addition, the statistics of quantum objects is elaborated in more detail withrespect to the rational reconstruction of quantum mechanics. The new material completes the approach of th e book as much as it is possible at the present state of knowledge. Presumably, the most important contribution that is added tothe second edition refers to the problem of interpretation of the three great theories of Modern Physics. It is shown in detail that in the light of rational reconstructions even realistic interpretations of the three theories ofModern Physics are possible and can easily be achieved |

Note: | It has often been claimed that without drastic conceptual innovations a genuine explanation of quantum interference effects and quantum randomness is impossible. This book concerns Bohmian mechanics, a simple particle theory thatis a counterexample t o such claims. The gentle introduction and other contributions collected here show how the phenomena of non-relativistic quantum mechanics, from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle to non-commuting observables,emerge from the Bohmian motion of particles, t he natural particle motion associated with Schrdinger's equation. This book will be of value to all students and researchers in physics with an interest in the meaning of quantum theoryas well as to philosophers of science |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book presents four mathematical essays which explore the foundations of mathematics and related topics ranging from philosophy and logic to modern computer mathematics. While connected to the historical evolution of theseconcepts, the essays pla ce strong emphasis on developments still to come. The book originated in a 2002 symposium celebrating the work of Bruno Buchberger, Professor of Computer Mathematics at Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria,on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Among many other accomplishments, Professor Buchberger in 1985 was the founding editor of the Journal of Symbolic Computation the founder of the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC)and its chairman from 1987-2000 the founder in 1990 of the Softwar epark Hagenberg, Austria, and since then its director. More than a decade in the making, Mathematics, Computer Science and Logic - A Never Ending Story includes essaysby leading authorities, on such topics as mathematical foundations from the perspective of computer verification a symbolic-computational philosophy and methodology for mathematics the role of logic and algebra in softwareengineering and new directions in the foundations of mathematics. These inspiring essays invite general, mathematically i nterested readers to share state-of-the-art ideas which advance the never ending story of mathematics, computerscience and logic. Mathematics, Computer Science and Logic - A Never Ending Story is edited by Professor Peter Paule, Bruno Buchbergers successo r as director of the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation |

Note: | This book is an essay on the epistemology of classifications. Its main purpose is not to provide an exposition of an actual mathematical theory of classifications, that is, a general theory which would be available to any kind ofthem: hierarchical or non-hierarchical, ordinary or fuzzy, overlapping or non-overlapping, finite or infinite, and so on, establishing a basis for all possible divisions of the real world. For the moment, such a theory remains nothingbut a dream. Instead, the authors essentia lly put forward a number of key questions. Their aim is rather to reveal the state of art of this dynamic field and the philosophy one may eventually adopt to go further. To this end theypresent some advances made in the course of the last century, discus s a few tricky problems that remain to be solved, and show the avenues open to those who no longer wish to stay on the wrong track. Researchers and professionalsinterested in the epistemology and philosophy of science, library science, logic and set theor y, order theory or cluster analysis will find this book a comprehensive, original and progressive introduction to the main questions in thisfield |

Note: | Logic, the discipline that explores valid reasoning, does not need to be limited to a specific form of representation but should include any form as long as it allows us to draw sound conclusions from given information. The use ofdiagrams has a long but unequal history in logic: The golden age of diagrammatic logic of the 19th century thanks to Euler and Venn diagrams was followed by the early 20th century's symbolization of modern logic by Frege and Russell.Recently, we have been witnessing a reviva l of interest in diagrams from various disciplines - mathematics, logic, philosophy, cognitive science, and computer science. This book aims to provide a space for this newly debated topic -the logical status of diagrams - in order to advance the goal of universal logic by exploring common and/or unique features of visual reasoning |

Note: | This short book, geared towards undergraduate students of computer science and mathematics, is specifically designed for a first course in mathematical logic. A proof of Gdel's completeness theorem and its main consequences isgiven using Robinson's c ompleteness theorem and Gdel's compactness theorem for propositional logic. The reader will familiarize himself with many basic ideas and artifacts of mathematical logic: a non-ambiguous syntax, logicalequivalence and consequence relation, the Davis-Putna m procedure, Tarski semantics, Herbrand models, the axioms of identity, Skolem normal forms, nonstandard models and, interestingly enough, proofs and refutations viewed as graphicobjects. The mathematical prerequisites are minimal: the book is accessible to anybody having some familiarity with proofs by induction. Many exercises on the relationship between natural language and formal proofs make the book alsointeresting to a wide range of students of philosophy and linguistics |

Note: | There is significant interest in the Philosophy of Science community to understand the role that effective theories have in the work of forefront science. The ideas of effective theories have been implicit in science for along time, but have only bee n articulated well in the last few decades. Since Wilson's renormalization group revolution in the early 1970's, the science community has come to more fully understand its power, and by the mid-1990's ithad gained its apotheosis. It is still one of the m ost powerful concepts in science, which has direct impact in how one thinks about and formulates theories of nature. It is this power that this Brief sets out to emphasize throughhistorical analysis and current examples |

Note: | Singularity Hypotheses: A Scientific and Philosophical Assessment offers authoritative, jargon-free essays and critical commentaries on accelerating technological progress and the notion of technological singularity. It focuses onconjectures about th e intelligence explosion, transhumanism, and whole brain emulation. Recent years have seen a plethora of forecasts about the profound, disruptive impact that is likely to result from further progress in these areas.Many commentators however doubt the scie ntific rigor of these forecasts, rejecting them as speculative and unfounded. We therefore invited prominent computer scientists, physicists, philosophers, biologists, economists and otherthinkers to assess the singularity hypotheses. Their contributions go beyond speculation, providing deep insights into the main issues and a balanced picture of the debate |

Note: | The spectacular success of the scientific enterprise over the last four hundred years has led to the promise of an all encompassing vision of the natural world. In this elegant picture, everything we observe is based upon just afew fundamental proces ses and entities. The almost infinite variety and complexity of the world is thus the product of emergence. But the concept of emergence is fraught with controversy and confusion. This book ponders the question ofhow emergence should be understood within the scientific picture, and whether a complete vision of the world can be attained that includes consciousness |

Note: | The concept of time has fascinated humanity throughout history, and remains one of the biggest mysteries in science and philosophy. Yet a deeper understanding of nature at a fundamental level can only be achieved through acomprehension of this strang e fourth dimension. Furthermore, the origin of the universe is closely intertwined with the puzzle of time: Did time emerge at the big bang? Why does the direction of time conspire with the remarkablyordered initial state of the universe? This book addre ssesmany ofthe most important questions about time: What is time, and is it fundamental or emergent? Why is there such an arrow of time, closely related to the initial stateof the universe, and why do the cosmic, thermodynamic and other arrows agree? Thes e issues are discussed here by leading experts, and each offers a new perspective on the debate. Their contributions delve into the most difficultresearch topic in physics, also describing the latest cutting edge research on the subject. The book also off ers readers a comparison between the different outlooks of philosophy, physics and cosmology on the puzzle of time. Thisvolume is intended to be useful for research purposes, but most chapters are also accessible to a more general audience of scientifical ly educated readers looking for deeper insights. |
