Gaia, a new look at life on earth by James Lovelock( Book )

111 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 3,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic work that continues to inspire many readers, Jim Lovelock puts forward his idea that the Earth functions as a single organism. Written for non-scientists, Gaia is a journey through time and space in search of evidence in support of a radically different model of our planet. In contrast to conventional belief that life is passive in the face of threats to its existence, the book explores the hypothesis that the Earth's living matter influences air, ocean, and rock to form a complex, self-regulating system that has the capacity to keep the Earth a fit place for life. Since Gaia was first published, Jim Lovelock's hypothesis has become a hotly debated topic in scientific circles. In a new Preface to this edition, he outlines his view of the present state of the debate. Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think

78 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 11 languages and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For millennia, humankind has exploited the Earth without counting the cost. Now, as the world warms and weather patterns dramatically change, the Earth is beginning to fight back. James Lovelock, one of the giants of environmental thinking, argues passionately and poetically that, although global warming is now inevitable, we are not yet too late to save at least part of human civilization. This short book, written at the age of 86 after a lifetime engaged in the science of the earth, is his testament."--Jacket

Novacene : the coming age of hyperintelligence by James Lovelock( Book )

18 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The originator of the Gaia theory offers the vision of a future epoch in which humans and artificial intelligence together will help the Earth survive. James Lovelock, creator of the Gaia hypothesis and the greatest environmental thinker of our time, has produced an astounding new theory about future of life on Earth. He argues that the Anthropocene--the age in which humans acquired planetary-scale technologies--is, after 300 years, coming to an end. A new age--the Novacene--has already begun. In the Novacene, new beings will emerge from existing artificial intelligence systems. They will think 10,000 times faster than we do and they will regard us as we now regard plants. But this will not be the cruel, violent machine takeover of the planet imagined by science fiction. These hyperintelligent beings will be as dependent on the health of the planet as we are. They will need the planetary cooling system of Gaia to defend them from the increasing heat of the sun as much as we do. And Gaia depends on organic life. We will be partners in this project. It is crucial, Lovelock argues, that the intelligence of Earth survives and prospers. He does not think there are intelligent aliens, so we are the only beings capable of understanding the cosmos. Perhaps, he speculates, the Novacene could even be the beginning of a process that will finally lead to intelligence suffusing the entire cosmos. At the age of 100, James Lovelock has produced the most important and compelling work of his life." -- Provided by publisher

La terre est un être vivant l'hypothèse Gaïa by James Lovelock( Book )

16 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in French and English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De concert avec le célèbre biologiste Lynn Margulis, James Lovelock a conçu une hypothèse scientifique permettant de considérer que les systèmes vivants de la Terre appartiennent à une même entité régulant l'environnement de manière à préserver les conditions favorables à la vie : tel est le sens de l'hypothèse Gaïa, nom grec de la déesse de la Terre. Il ne s'agit rien de moins que de reposer la problématique de l'histoire de la vie et de la Terre. Notre " monde vivant ", étonnante anomalie au regard de la planétologie comparée, ne forme-t-il pas un système, un " tout " comparable à un " organisme " auto-régulé dont il nous resterait à comprendre ce que James Lovelock appelle la " géophysiologie " ? L'hypothèse Gaïa est maintenant considérée avec beaucoup de sérieux : il est devenu évident que la vie est affectée par l'environnement, mais qu'elle l'affecte aussi en retour, et souvent de manière à maintenir des conditions qui lui sont favorables.

The earth and I by James Lovelock( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This illustrated anthology is a guide book for being human in the 21st century. Conceived by James Lovelock, inventor of the Gaia theory, the book encourages holistic understanding. Much as Gaia theory considers our earth as an integrated whole of living systems, The Earth and I brings together an all-star lineup of contributors from across the scientific spectrum to offer wide understanding who and where we are. True to the very best travel guides, The Earth and I takes in the intricate details as much as the immense structures. Across 12 chapters, we zoom in from our ever-expanding universe to our miniscule but mighty cells. We make stopovers in astronomy, geology, neuroscience, and economics. We see stellar explosions, consider the layers of life beneath our feet, get to grips with the facts beneath the climate controversies, and contemplate our increasing intimacy with technology all brought to visual life by the vibrant illustration of British artist Jack Hudson. Our expert travel escorts along the way include quantum physicist Lisa Randall, Astronomer Royal Martin Rees, Pulitzer Prize-winning biologist Edward O. Wilson, and Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel. Their captivating accounts of our earth and our existence share not only essential understanding but also thrilling sparks of innovation, opinion, and discovery
