Philosophical Chemistry furthers Manuel DeLanda's revolutionary intervention in the philosophy of science and science studies. Against a monadic and totalizing understanding of science, DeLanda's historicizing investigation traces the centrality of divergence, specialization and hybridization through the fields and subfields of chemistry. The strategy followed uses a series of chemical textbooks, separated from each other by fifty year periods (1750, 1800, 1850, and 1900), to follow the historical formation of consensus practices. The three chapters deal with one subfield of chemistry in the century in which it was developed: eighteenth-century inorganic chemistry, nineteenth-century organic chemistry, and nineteenth-century physical chemistry. This book creates a model of a scientific field capable of accommodating the variation and differentiation evident in the history of scientific practice. DeLanda proposes a model that is made of three components: a domain of phenomena, a community of practitioners, and a set of instruments and techniques connecting the community to the domain. Philosophical Chemistry will be essential reading for those engaged in emergent, radical and contemporary strands of thought in the philosophy of science and for those scholars and students who strive to practice a productive dialogue between the two disciplines.

Through a series of case studies DeLanda shows how the concept can be applied to economic, linguistic and military history as well as to metaphysics, science and mathematics.DeLanda then presents the real power of assemblage theory by advancing it beyond its original formulation allowing for the integration of communities, institutional organisations, cities and urban regions. And he challenges Marxist orthodoxy with a Leftist politics of assemblages.Key FeaturesCritically connects DeLanda with more recent theoretical turns in speculative realismMakes sense of the fragmentary discussions of assemblage theory in the work of Deleuze and GuattariOpens up assemblage theory to sociology, linguistics, military organisations and science so that future researchers can rigorously deploy the concept in their own fields"e;

Σ’ αυτό το εκπληκτικό μυθιστόρημα ο Καρλ Ούβε Κνάουσγκορντ αναμετράται με την ίδια του τη ζωή με επώδυνη ειλικρίνεια. Γράφει για τα παιδικά χρόνια και την εφηβεία του, το πάθος του για τη ροκ μουσική, τη σχέση του με μια σχεδόν ανύπαρκτη μητέρα που όμως αγαπούσε, αλλά και τον απόμακρο, απρόβλεπτο πατέρα του, ο θάνατος του οποίου επέφερε όχι μόνο οδύνη αλλά και σύγχυση. Από τη στιγμή που ο Καρλ Ούβε γίνεται και ο ίδιος γονιός πρέπει να εξισορροπήσει τις απαιτήσεις που έχει η φροντίδα μιας οικογένειας με την αποφασιστικότητά του να γράψει σπουδαία λογοτεχνία. Με το Ένας θάνατος στην οικογένεια, το πρώτο μέρος μιας εξάτομης λογοτεχνικής αυτοβιογραφίας που έχει προκαλέσει παγκόσμια αίσθηση, ο Κνάουσγκορντ συνέθεσε μια πανανθρώπινη ιστορία για τις συγκρούσεις, με τις οποίες ερχόμαστε αντιμέτωποι στη ζωή μας, σ’ αυτόν τον αγώνα που είναι η ζωή μας. Ένα βιβλίο απολύτως σαγηνευτικό, ικανό να συμπαρασύρει τον ευαίσθητο αναγνώστη, γραμμένο με μια βραδυφλεγή ένταση, σαν να εξαρτάται από αυτό η ίδια η ύπαρξη του συγγραφέα. Το πρώτο βιβλίο της μυθιστορηματικής σειράς Ο αγώνας μου.

This book is a refreshingly unique approach to genealogy and its relationships with Science and Religion. It is the author's answer to the questions posed artistically by the painter Paul Gauguin's masterpiece; ?Where Do We Come From? What Are We Made Of? Where Are We Going?, as reproduced on the book cover. Most religions and cultures make important reference to their genealogies. Science, also, since the advent of Darwin's Theory of Evolution and its subsequent development and culmination in DNA and brain science research, has its own genealogy, telling the story of the pre-history and history of mankind, our migrations and the evolution of our behavior and cultures. The author, trained as both a biologist and lawyer, writing as an independent scholar, examines these questions through the various lenses of genealogy, biology, evidence, religion and philosophy. He considers, first: some basic but little known facts of genealogy; then our common mortality and heritage and brother/sisterhood with all mankind; then the variety of world-views; then the different evidentiary bases for science and religion; then a condensed, but comprehensive view of comparative religion and humanism; then the history of Biblical interpretation and Biblical genealogies; and, finally, the history of mankind as seen by science, including the remarkable recent discoveries of prehistoric man, and brain science. The poetry/prose metaphor is illustrated by insightful examples of both poetry and prose, and brief introductions to some remarkable religious and scientific personalities. The dark side of religion is explored, with contemporary critiques by renowned scholars, and some exemplary poets are referred to with examples of their poetry. This book avoids the combative rhetoric of both religious and scientific extremists, and points the way toward and enriching language and life of religious humanism. This ?new dualism? of poetry and prose reflects the biological facts of our simultaneously emotional and rational selves. Thus, religious humanism provides a natural bridge between religion and science, accessible to everyone. The poetry/prose metaphor can provide a thoughtful rationale for people to keep their religious beliefs and traditions, make peace between religions and also understand and appreciate the modern scientific world without conflict. Thus, genealogy has taken us on a long journey through the history of science and religion, illustrating the mysteries, complexities, and beauties of humanity's existence. The book is well researched and written clearly in an engaging style, with an extensive bibliography. It will be well worth reading by all people who have an interest in genealogy and its relationships with science and religion.

Four men with the surname Whipple were in the American colonies by the early 1630s. This book is about one of those men: "Elder" John Whipple of Ipswich, Massachusetts and his 6,880 American descendants, covering 15 generations. In addition to these lineages, the book offers a social history of various family members beginning with John's father, Matthew, Sr., a successful Clothier of Bocking, Essex Co., England who was born about 1560. Many of the most prominent families of early colonial America married into the Whipple family. Included in the pages of this book are members of the Dea. Simon Stone family of Great Bromley, England and Watertown, Mass.; Samuel Appleton of Little Waldingfield, England and Ipswich; William Goddard of London and Watertown; Thomas Hinckley, last govenor of Plymouth colony; Humphrey Reynor of England and Rowley; Daniel Denison , major general of the Massachusetts colony; Dr. Comfort Starr of Canbrook, Kent Co., England and Suffolk Co., Mass.; Dea. William Goodhue of England and Ipswich; Job Lane of England and Malden Mass.; etc. A full biography of general William Whipple, New Hampshire singer of the Declaration of Independence, is presented. Other biographies include president Calvin Coolidge; Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross; James Russell Lowell, author and diplomat; Brigham Young, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; professor Albert Enoch Pillsburry who taught consitutional law at Boston university; and many other. REVIEWS E "Rarely does one come across a family history text of this depth.E Ambitious and rich in detail, it is a genealogical compilation and also a historical accounting that will appeal to students of colonial American history.E Extensive historical backdrop has been intertwined with Whipple family story, expanding its time span and subject." E "Chapter endnotes-some of them massive in numbe-include valuable narrative information in addition to source citations." E ". . . thisE book represents a unique text that will appeal to those interested in Whipple family history and in American colonial history.E It is unsurpassed in detail, a captivating read, and a massive fait accompli."

Dynamic Aspects Of Natural Products Chemistry

Preface: Natural products chemistry has a long history, and could be regarded as having its roots in the use of many kinds of herbal mixtures as crude drugs in traditional medicine. Systems of traditional medicine have been practiced in China and Japan for thousands of years, and virtually all regions of the world have used natural materials to treat human disease. It was clear that many plants, herbs, etc. contain components with powerful biological activities. The dawn of modern natural products chemistry began with the isolation of the active component, morphine, from opium. Subsequently, various alkaloids were isolated from medicinal plants and employed clinically. The discovery and the development of penicillin as a microbial metabolite opened up the era of antibiotics, which have saved countless lives in the past half century or so. The isolation and synthesis of steroid hormones resulted in the development of new concepts in molecular stereochemistry and organic synthetic techniques, as did the discovery of bioactive lipids such as prostaglandins and leukatrienes, bioactive peptides such as enkephalins and endetherines, and oligosaccharides, including glycoproteins. Further, the discovery of plant hormones has led to great strides in plant biotechnology, including plant tissue cultures, and derivatives of insect hormones and pheromones are now used as pesticides. Thus, applications of natural products chemistry have become all-pervasive in modern society. Apart from the extensive practical applications of natural products and their derivatives, natural products chemistry has played a central role in the development of modern organic chemistry as a result of its focus on structural and synthetic studies of often highly complex and inaccessible molecules. Biosynthetic studies have also attracted much attention, aiming to answer the questions of why and how such a large number and variety of compounds are synthesised by organisms. Researchers in the field of biosynthesis first focused on elucidation of the pathways of secondary metabolism, and then on the mechanisms, of the enzymes catalyzing the biosynthetic reactions. This was an extremely difficult task, because rather large amounts of enzymes are required for the investigation of reaction mechanisms and the enzyme proteins are often unstable and not easy to purify. However, in recent years the development of molecular biology has made gene and protein engineering rather routine. Thus, studies of mechanistic enzymology can now be conducted with cloned and overexpressed enzyme proteins. It has been shown that the enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of antibiotics in Streptomyces spp. are encoded in gene clusters. Further, cloning and functional analysis of the genes associated with flavonoid biosynthesis should soon cast light on the interesting question of why flavonoids are ubiquitously present in plant leaves. Life is maintained not only by large molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids, but also by many small molecules which have essential and diverse roles in the physiology of living organisms. Such compounds often have highly specific interactions with target receptors, but the mechanisms involved largely remain to be explored. Current methodology means that this task can be addressed, and this in turn should lead to a host of new applications for natural products and their derivatives. The key may be an interdisciplinary approach taking account of both biological function and molecular behaviour based on precise structure recognition. As we increasingly understand the mechanisms of molecular recognition that operate in nature, many possibilities should open up for artificial control or modification of biological functions, as well as new challenges for synthetic organic chemists. Our intention in this book is to focus on such dynamic aspects of natural products chemistry. By dealing in detail with representative topics to which the most modern techniques of research have been applied, we hope to emphasize the value of combining traditional approaches to natural products chemists with current biochemical and molecular-biological ideas. Each chapter provides sufficient background information and experimental detail to make the subject accessible to non-specialists. It is our hope that these examples of recent progress in key areas of natural products chemistry will stimulate work in related topics by illustrating the power of a modern interdisciplinary approach to the subject.

On the last day of his life, Otto Neurath had given help to a Chinese philosopher who was writing about Schlick. Only an hour before his death he said to me: "Nobody will do such a thing for me." My answer then was: "Never mind, you have Bilston, isn't that better?" There were con sultations in new housing schemes, an exhibition, and hopes for a fruitful relationship of longer duration. I did not dream at that time that I would one day work on a book like this. The idea came from Horace M. Kallen, of the New School for Social Research, New York, years later; to encourage me he sent me his selection from William James' writings. Later I met Robert S. Cohen. Carnap had sent him to me with the message: "If you want to find out what my political views were in the twenties and thirties, read Otto Neurath's books and articles of that time; his views were also mine." In this way Robert Cohen became ac quainted with Otto Neurath. Even more: he became interested; and when I asked him, would he help me as an editor of an Otto N eurath volume, he agreed at once. In previous years I had already asked a number of Otto Neurath's friends to write down for me what they especially remembered about him.
