Negotiating Darwin : the Vatican confronts evolution, 1877-1902 by Mariano Artigas( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,458 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
Islamic and Christian Spain in the early Middle Ages by Thomas F Glick( Book )

55 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,190 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
Einstein in Spain : relativity and the recovery of science by Thomas F Glick( )

19 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1900 to 1924 Spain experienced a stage of vigorous academic freedom and unfettered scientific inquiry that strikingly contrasted with the repressive atmosphere of the periods before and after. Thomas Glick explores this "recovery of science" by focusing on the national discussion provoked by Einstein's trip to Spain in 1923. His visit stimulated a debate on the nature and social value of science that was remarkable in a society so recently awakened to the scientific role in the process of modernization. Einstein's universal appeal created the unlikely occasion for a fascination with science that cut across social classes and previously established domains of discourse.The political Right, which in other countries opposed relativity in the name of "traditional" Newtonian science, backed the new theories with surprising enthusiasm. Engineers, a politically conservative group, contributed much of the rank-and-file support for Einstein; physicians, who tended to the Left, also eagerly embraced his ideas, as did a host of mutually antagonistic political groups, including anarcho-syndicalists and bourgeois Catalan nationalists. Professor Glick's analysis of this multidimensional scientific forum provides an unusual amount of information on science in Spain and an opportunity to contrast the Spaniards' reception of Einstein's work and that of other nations during this historical period.Originally published in 1988.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

The reception of Charles Darwin in Europe( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond this pivotal place in the history of scientific thought, Charles Darwin's writings and his theory of evolution by natural selection have also had a profound impact on art and culture and continue to do so to this day.

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 )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 931 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
The comparative reception of Darwinism by Thomas F Glick( Book )

31 editions published between 1972 and 1988 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reaction to Darwin's Origin of Species varied in many countries according to the roles played by national scientific institutions and traditions and the attitudes of religious and political groups. The contributors to this volume, including M. J. S. Hodge, David Hull, and Roberto Moreno, gathered in 1972 at an international conference on the comparative reception of Darwinism. Their essays look at early pro- and anti-Darwinism arguments, and three additional comparative essays and appendices add a larger perspective. For this paperback edition, Thomas F. Glick has added a new preface commenting on recent research
Convivencia : Jews, Muslims, and Christians in medieval Spain by Vivian B Mann( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle Ages in Spain - the period from the Muslim Conquest in 711 to the expulsion of the Jews and the defeat of the last Muslim ruler in 1492 - witnessed an extraordinary "Golden Age" through the intermingling of its Jewish, Muslim, and Christian inhabitants. This volume explores the nature of their coexistence (termed convivencia by Spanish historians), which embraced not only ideological interchange and cultural influence, but also mutual friction, rivalry, and

Irrigation and society in medieval Valencia by Thomas F Glick( Book )

33 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the communal institutions elaborated by medieval Spaniards, the most significant and longest-lived were the irrigation communities which the Muslims had established centuries earlier in the Valencian region. The objective of these remarkably democratic communities was justice and equity in water distribution; and the irrigators succeeded in combining traditional rules with consensual authority to maintain their systems with a minimum of conflict. Above the community level, however, regional powers including king, nobles, church, and town all sought to derive, at each other's expense, the maximum benefit from the available water supply. The resultant interplay of power politics was a sharp contrast to the democracy of the communities. Thomas F. 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), focusing on the institutional dynamics of both the local irrigation communities--those irrigating from a single main canal--and the larger regional units, the huertas. He examines the huerta environment and the administration of the irrigation communities and then discusses intracommunity conflict, the city's role in irrigation development, the search for new sources of water, and regional arrangements for irrigation. 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. Here the author examines the antecedents of medieval Valencian irrigation on the basis of Islamic survivals in medieval Christian institutions and of comparative data from other Islamic irrigation systems. He also touches on aspects of acculturation and cultural transition that extend beyond the geographical and temporal bounds of this study, explaining that "the history of Spanish irrigation is but one example of the administrative creativity and genius for cultural synthesis which characterized Iberian culture at the dawn of the modern age
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 523 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
From Muslim fortress to Christian castle : social and cultural change in medieval Spain by Thomas F Glick( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examines the socially induced processes of landscape change in the Iberian peninsula across the moving border between Christians and Muslims and sociopolitical developments after the Christian triumph. Also demonstrates the application of a universalizing hypothesis of landscape change and the organization of rural society. Covering the entire period from the Islamic conquest of the Visigoths to the lower Middle Ages, describes and interprets the maze of recent archaeological results that have been virtually ignored in English scholarship."--
The Comparative reception of relativity by Thomas F Glick( Book )

16 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 374 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
The reception of Darwinism in the Iberian world : Spain, Spanish America, and Brazil by Thomas F Glick( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 270 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

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

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 233 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

A recepção do darwinismo no Brasil by Heloisa Maria Bertol Domingues( )

5 editions published in 2003 in Portuguese and Undetermined and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Os artigos reunidos iniciam um debate que aprofunda a história sobre a recepção da teoria de Darwin que repercutiu nos mais diversos campos científicos, orientando-os, desde a segunda metade do século XIX e no século XX. Particularmente, preocupa-se em retratar como o Brasil viveu o debate em torno do tema, apesar das controvérsias que estimularam a discussão nos meios intelectuais. A partir das controvérsias e das discussões do darwinismo, os trabalhos desta coletânea tentam abordar qual a contribuição da teoria darwinista para a criação de argumentos ideológicos nos mais diversos campos do saber, sendo muito comum a confusão entre darwinismo e evolucionismo, o que minimizou a oposição a Darwin, levando a classificar opositores da teoria da seleção das espécies, de darwinistas
