As editor of "Seeing Further," Bryson has rounded up an extraordinary roster of scientists who write and writers who know science in order to celebrate 350 years of the Royal Society, Britain's scientific national academy. The contributors include Margaret Atwood, Steve Jones, Richard Dawkins, James Gleick, Richard Holmes, and Neal Stephenson, among many others, on subjects ranging from metaphysics to nuclear physics, from the threatened endtimes of flu and climate change to our evolving ideas about the nature of time itself, from the hidden mathematics that rule the universe to the cosmological principle that guides "Star Trek."
Lovelock and Gaia : signs of life by Jon Turney ( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Once, 'Earth science' meant geology, climatology and oceanography, meant studying rocks, volcanoes, ocean currents and trade winds. But that has all changed. Thanks largely to two scientists - the Englishman James Lovelock and the American Lynn Margulis - the Earth sciences have embraced biology. The idea that life as a whole shapes the planetary environment is well on the way to scientific acceptance." "This book tells how that came about, from Lovelock's first thoughts about the planetary signatures of life during his involvement in NASA's missions to Mars in the 1960s, through his first formulation of Gaia theory a few years later. And it explains how Gaia became respectable."--BOOK JACKET

La technologie : débats moraux dans l'application de la science by Jon Turney ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cette collection se propose de faire réfléchir les adolescents à diverses questions d'éthique qui alimentent les débats d'actualité ayant trait aux progrès scientifiques, technologiques et médicaux. Chaque titre présente ainsi des textes fouillés qui passent en revue les positions et arguments contradictoires adoptés par différents tiers (organismes, scientifiques, industries, gouvernements, etc.) eu égard à une problématique donnée. Des citations, des exemples et des statistiques étayent ces exposés auxquels se greffent des encadrés intitulés "À vous de décider". Ces derniers présentent des cas réels (ou possibles) et les questionnements (sans réponses) qu'ils suscitent, invitant le lecteur à se forger sa propre opinion. Cet opus est consacré aux interrogations que soulèvent les inventions modernes, parmi lesquelles Internet, la robotisation, l'intelligence artificielle ou la nanotechnologie. Si ces dernières ont d'indéniables avantages, elles ont également de nombreuses incidences au niveau de la protection des renseignements personnels et des droits de la personne. Le fait que le piratage soit largement répandu en fait-il un moyen acceptable d'enrichir sa collection musicale? Quelle est la différence entre utiliser l'information sur Internet et voler les idées des autres? La technologie militaire est-elle acceptable parce qu'elle accroît la sécurité nationale? Qui est autorisé à lire nos courriels ou à surveiller notre utilisation de l'Internet? Les caméras de surveillance constituent-elles une invasion de la vie privée ou sont-elles essentielles à la sécurité publique? -- Un documentaire de grande qualité, qui s'appuie sur des données récentes et qui donne une vue d'ensemble de ce qui se passe à l'échelle de la planète. Un riche dossier iconographique alliant photographies, schémas et graphiques illustre le tout. [SDM]
