The identity of man by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

22 editions published between 1965 and 1972 in English and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the impact of science on our sense of self and the need to revaluate ethics in light of the scientific perspective. As both a practicing scientist and an author of books on poetry, the author makes interesting connections between the uses of the imagination in science and in literature. Whereas science creates experiments to test hypotheses about the outside world, he notes that literature also provides "experiments" in poetry and prose, allowing readers to experience what it means to be fully human and relating the individual's inner life to that of every human being

Excavation, radiocarbon dating, form analysis, space-time slope patterns, as well as the context, function, and structure of uncovered artifacts and sites are all carefully considered; and their role in piecing together cultures of the past is discussed."--Jacket

Welcome to the genome : a user's guide to the genetic past, present, and future by Rob DeSalle( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to the Genome takes you right into the thick of today's most cutting-edge science and its far-reaching implications. Authors Rob DeSalle and Michael Yudell have written a book which clearly explains the ongoing saga of our attempts to understand the mystery of biology's Rosetta Stone and use its code to better our lives." "This book employs an understandable style and full-color illustrations to provide insights into the complex science involved. It delves into the past discoveries that led to the sequencing of the human genome; it presents the challenges facing today's scientists and society and culture in general; and it considers the future possibilities of the developing genome era. Social issues, particularly questions of ethics, receive special attention, covering an important area too often overshadowed by science and technology."--Jacket
