Why did Modern Science develop in Europe when China seemed so much better placed to achieve it? This is called the Needham Question, after Joseph Needham, the 20th century British Sinologist who did more, perhaps, than anyone else to try and explain it. Why did China’s early technological brilliance not lead to the development of modern science and how did momentous inventions like gunpowder and printing enter Chinese society with barely a ripple and yet revolutionise the warring states of Europe?

Two physicists turned novelists - Gregory Benford and Andrew Crumey share their thoughts on the nature of time and Einstein's theories of Special and General relativity through their [respective] books Timescape and Mobius Dick. Whilst both writers can be placed in the genre of science fiction, their stories are firmly rooted in the latest research and theoretical musings of Einstein's latter-day followers.

  • Epistemic Cultures - How the Sciences Make Knowledge

  • Karin Knorr Cetina , Harvard University Press , 1999

Comtemporary western societies are becoming "knowledge societies," that run on expert processes and expert systems epitomised by science and structured into all areas of social life. By looking at epistemic cultures in two sample cases, this book addresses pressing questions about how such expert systems and processes work, what principles inform their cognitive and procedural orientations and whether their organisation, structures and operations can be extended to other forms of social order

Every beach, bay and cliff edge along this stretch of coast has a story to tell of people who struggled with changing sea levels, the perils of flooding, subsidence and erosion. Whole towns have been lost to the sea, houses teeter on cliff tops... the very land is crumbling away.
