Islamic and Christian Spain in the early Middle Ages by Thomas F Glick( Book )

47 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 1,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Glick presents a comparative history of the Islamic and Christian areas of Spain in the period between A.D. 711 and 1250 when these areas emerged as distinct political, social, and cultural entities. The author accounts for the social, political, and ethnic structures that developed between the frontiers of Muslim and Christian territories and explores the cross-cultural relationships and the transmission of ideas and techniques, mainly from the Islamic culture to the Christian culture in Spain. Glick argues that science and technology are key indicators of cultural influence. The author has revised this text considerably since the first edition appeared in 1979 to reflect the 'historio-graphic revolution' in Spanish medieval history as well as the advent of an innovative field of medieval archaeology over the last two decades."--BOOK JACKET

What about Darwin? : all species of opinion from scientists, sages, friends, and enemies who met, read, and discussed the naturalist who changed the world by Thomas F Glick( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Darwin and his revolutionary ideas inspired pundits the world over to put pen to paper. In this unique dictionary of quotations, Darwin scholar Thomas F. Glick looks over the shoulders of those who revered- or reviled- the great scientist. What was it about Darwin that generated such widespread interest? Darwin's Origin of the Species changed the world. Naturalists, clerics, politicians, novelists, poets, musicians, economists, and philosophers alike could not help but engage his theories. Whatever their view of his work, however, those who met Darwin in person were unfailingly charmed by his modesty, kindness, and honesty. This diverse collection drawn from essays, letters, novels, short stories, plays, poetry, speeches, and parodies that shows Darwin's ideas permeating all areas of thought. The quotations trace a broad conversation about Darwin across great distances of time and space, revealing his profound influence on the great thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. -- Book cover
On evolution : the development of the theory of natural selection by Charles Darwin( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this rich selection from Darwin's most important and relevant works, Glick and Kohn provide the reader with a map of sorts by which to navigate the ins and outs of the development of the theory of natural selection. A concise general introduction lays out Darwin's theory, which is followed up in the chapter introductions. Each chapter ends with an excerpt from Darwin's correspondence, commenting on the work in question, its significance, impact, and reception. In addition, two essential appendices are included - the first three chapters from Malthus, On Population, which gave Darwin the idea for natural selection, and the paper by Wallace that motivated Darwin to abandon the "Big Species Book" and write Origin of Species
Irrigation and society in medieval Valencia by Thomas F Glick( Book )

26 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glick has drawn on original documents of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries to present in this volume a thorough and lively study of Valencian irrigation and society. In Part One Glick describes medieval Valencian irrigation in the epoch of its fullest documentation (1238-4500). Part Two is concerned generally with the spread of Islamic irrigation technology and, more specifically, with cultural diffusion and the persistence of cultural forms during the transition in Spain from Islamic to Christian rule

The Comparative reception of relativity by Thomas F Glick( Book )

15 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume grew out of a double session of the Boston Collo quium for the Philosophy of Science held in Boston on March 25, 1983. The papers presented there (by Biezunski, Glick, Goldberg, and Judith Goodstein!) offered both sufficient comparability to establish regulari ties in the reception of relativity and Einstein's impact in France, Spain, the United States and Italy, and sufficient contrast to suggest the salience of national inflections in the process. The interaction among the participants and the added perspectives offered by members of the audience suggested the interest of commissioning articles for a more inclusive volume which would cover as many national cases as we could muster. Only general guidelines were given to the authors: to treat the special or general theories, or both, hopefully in a multidisciplinary setting, to examine the popular reception of relativity, or Einstein's personal impact, or to survey all these topics. In a previous volume, on the 2 comparative reception of Darwinism, one of us devised a detailed set of guidelines which in general were not followed. In our opinion, the studies in this collection offer greater comparability, no doubt because relativity by its nature and its complexity offers a sharper, more easily bounded target. As in the Darwinism volume, this book concludes with an essay intended to draw together in comparative perspective some of many themes addressed by the participants
Negotiating Darwin : the Vatican confronts evolution, 1877-1902 by Mariano Artigas( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publisher-supplied data) Drawing on primary sources made available to scholars only after the archives of the Holy Office were unsealed in 1998, Negotiating Darwin chronicles how the Vatican reacted when six Catholics--five clerics and one layman--tried to integrate evolution and Christianity in the decades following the publication of Darwin's The Origin of Species. As Mariano Artigas, Thomas F. Glick, and Rafael A. Martínez reconstruct these cases, we see who acted and why, how the events unfolded, and how decisions were put into practice. With the long shadow of Galileo's condemnation hanging over the Church as the Scientific Revolution ushered in new paradigms, the Church found it prudent to avoid publicly and directly condemning Darwinism and thus treated these cases carefully. The authors reveal the ideological and operational stance of the Vatican and describe its secret deliberations. In the process, they provide insight into current debates on evolution and religious belief

Uneasy communion : Jews, Christians, and the altarpieces of medieval Spain( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in conjunction with the exhibition Uneasy Communion: Jews, Christians, and the Altarpieces of Medieval Spain, this volume provides a fascinating study of the iconography of altarpieces and the artistic collaboration between Jews and Christians. In the multicultural society of late medieval Spain, Jewish and Christian artists worked together to produce retablos (large multi-paneled altarpieces) as well as Latin and Hebrew religious manuscripts. The authors of this highly illustrated volume explore the methods, imagery, workshops, and shop styles, and the relationship between Christians and Jews at this time, including their portrayal of one another through dress and appearance. The volume also offers a significant investigation into the position of the Jewish community in medieval Spain against the backdrop of rising antisemitism and the growth of the Inquisition." "The essays featured in this volume take us on a journey from the general to the particular, and include a study of Jewish communities within Spanish society of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries by Thomas F. Glick; a survey of the painting of the period by Carmen Lacarra Ducay; an examination of specific artworks that address the issue of Jewish-Christian relationships by Vivian B. Mann; and a historiography of scholarship on Jewish involvement in the creation of Spanish medieval art by Marcus B. Burke"--Jacket
The reception of Darwinism in the Iberian world : Spain, Spanish America, and Brazil by Thomas F Glick( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides both for academic historians and the general reader a broad perspective on Darwin's impact in the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. In Latin American countries with black and Amerindian populations, evolutionary theory was quickly mobilized for theorizing racial differences, while in Spain attention was focused on class differentiation, explained by a series of Darwinian, Social Darwinist, and Eugenic hypotheses. The wide variety of approaches to evolutionary and social theory in countries whose culture was very similar points illuminates those issues thought to be of particular significance for national identity, whether political, ethnic, or racial
