A Compassionate peace : a future for the Middle East : a report prepared for the American Friends Service Committee by Everett Mendelsohn( Book )

21 editions published between 1982 and 1989 in English and Hebrew and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of the American Friends Service Committee's (AFSC) 1982 visionary work on the nature of the conflict and the requirements for a just and lasting peace through- out the Middle East is welcome indeed. It is a work of extraordinary integrity and clarity, of accurate and well-balanced research and incisive analysis, and it is solidly grounded in the needs, aspirations, and interests of the human beings of the region (rather than in national, state, economic, or ideological interests). The value of the book resides not only in the quality of its research and analysis but also in the solutions it provides for seemingly intractable regional problems. A Compassionate Peace cuts through the multiple layers of disinformation, obfuscation, and misunderstanding that cloud Middle East issues and provides much needed enlightenment, especially on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (of which it demonstrates that peace is attainable and lays out the principles and path that are required), on U.S. policy in the region, and on the arms race. Additionally, there are good chapters on Lebanon, Iran, Afghanistan, and Soviet Middle East policy. It should be required reading for everyone- scholar, policy maker, participant, and observer-concerned with the Middle East. -- From https://www.jstor.org (Nov. 14, 2016)
Heat and life; the development of the theory of animal heat by Everett Mendelsohn( Book )

14 editions published in 1964 in English and German and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Topics in the philosophy of biology by Marjorie Grene( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Dutch and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The philosophy of biology, some claim, should move to the centre of philosophy of science - a place it has not been accorded since the time of Mach. Physics was the paradigm of science, and its shadow falls across contemporary philosophy of biology in a variety of contexts: reduction, organization and system, biochemical mechanism, and the models of law and explanation which are derived from the Duhem-Popper-Hempel tradition. In this volume, the editors present essays which probe such historical and methodological questions as reducibility, levels of organization, function and teleology, issues emerging from evolutionary theory, and the species problem. The volume offers ample evidence of how good contemporary work in the philosophical understanding of biology has become. The editors aptly combine a deep philosophical appreciation of conceptual issues in biology with an historical understanding of the radical changes in the science of biology since the 19th century
The Social production of scientific knowledge by Everett Mendelsohn( Book )

18 editions published in 1977 in 3 languages and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first volume of an annual publication that deals with the sociology of the sciences. The aim of the yearbook is to consider sociology from a very broad perspective and to develop a comparative, cross disciplinary understanding of the sciences. It does this by publishing papers from a number of perspectives and approaches on a specific topic. The basic standpoint of the yearbook views the sciences as a plurality of socially constructed ways of comprehending natural and social phenomena. It is intended for an audience that includes sociologists and all those interested in sociology of science, sociology of knowledge, theoretical sociology, philosophy and history of science, science policy, as well as post graduate students in those fields. The publication has three major parts: Part I deals with The Institutionalisation of the Sciences: Changing Concepts and Approaches in the History and Sociology of Science; Part ii is on Social Relations of Cognitive Structures in the Sciences; and Part iii discusses Social Goals, Political Programmes and Scientific Norms.

Human aspects of biomedical innovation by Everett Mendelsohn( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the social control of new biomedical technologies and the problems in organization and delivery of medical care in the face of new technological and social change
Technology, pessimism, and postmodernism by Yaron Ezrahi( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first systematic examination of the contemporary and prior connections between technological progress and pessimism over the future. If the hallmark of the Enlightenment was a firm belief in technology as a principal instrument of universal progress, the hallmark of postmodernism may well be skepticism, even despair, over technology's role in shaping our world. This book incorporates the perspectives of historians, political scientists, philosophers, and literary scholars to illuminate the origins, evolution, and influence of technological pessimism and to evaluate its long-term prospects. The volume should appeal to specialists in technology studies and the history of ideas but also to general readers concerned with these dilemmas of technological progress

Biology as society, society as biology : metaphors by Sabine Maasen( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The disciplines of biology and the social sciences share common roots in history and yet have drifted so far apart that the demarcation line between them has become a contested boundary. The boundary shift between the `natural' and the `social' is becoming permanent: moves in either direction are subject to ideological rhetoric. Yet there is continual exchange across the line: metaphors are moving freely between biology and the social sciences. As messengers of meaning they become agents of change, forever undermining any attempt at fixing similarities and differences. Biology as Society, Society as Biology: Metaphors offers a unique look at the function of metaphors in mediating between two disciplinary cultures which represent and mold our views about nature and society, and the boundary between them. For professionals and students of history, philosophy and sociology of science, biology, and literary science alike

The practices of human genetics by Michael Fortun( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The remarkably rapid growth of knowledge and practice in human and medical genetics raises significant questions about the social and ethical readiness of scientists, physicians, and others to make appropriate decisions concerning the utilization of this new genetic knowledge and technique. The continuing "temptation" to engage in eugenic practices tracks all new moves in human genetics and construction of human genomes. This book will be of critical interest to historians, sociologists, and scientists who have concern and interest in the burgeoning field of human genetic studies and practices."--Jacket
