Insights of genius : imagery and creativity in science and art by Arthur I Miller( )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and German and held by 2,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can new knowledge be created from already existing knowledge? Insights of Genius shows how seeing in all it's many forms - insight, revelation, a distinctive point of view - is central to the greatest advances of the human intellect. Artists and scientists alike rely on visual representations of worlds both visible and invisible"--Page 4 of cover

Colliding worlds : how cutting-edge science is redefining contemporary art by Arthur I Miller( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades, an exciting new art movement has emerged in which artists utilize and illuminate the latest advances in science. Some of their provocative creations--a live rabbit implanted with the fluorescent gene of a jellyfish, a gigantic glass-and-chrome sculpture of the Big Bang (pictured on the cover)--can be seen in traditional art museums and magazines, while others are being made by leading designers at Pixar, Google's Creative Lab, and the MIT Media Lab. In Colliding Worlds, Arthur I. Miller takes readers on a wild journey to explore this new frontier. Miller, the author of several celebrated books on science and creativity, traces the movement from its seeds a century ago--when Einstein's theory of relativity helped shape the thinking of the Cubists--to its flowering today. From NanoArt to Big Data, Miller reveals the extraordinary possibilities when art and science collide.--From publisher description

A Pro Scientia Vivea Title
Early quantum electrodynamics : a source book by Arthur I Miller( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subject matter of this book goes beyond the historical and philosophical into current physics. The astounding theoretical and experimental successes of quantum electrodynamics have set this theory as the model for elementary particle physics research. In this way have emerged the stunning successes in quantum chromodynamics, and particularly in the unification of electromagnetic and weak interactions. It is noteworthy that the similarity between quantum electrodynamics and quantum chromodynamics has led some physicists to realize the importance of calculational techniques from the early quantum electrodynamics such as effective Lagrangians. Unavailability of English-language versions of certain key papers, some of which are included in this volume, has prevented their implications from being fully realized. Awareness of research from sixty years ago could well provide insights for future developments."--Jacket
Deciphering the cosmic number : the strange friendship of Wolfgang Pauli and Carl Jung by Arthur I Miller( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1932, the groundbreaking physicist Wolfgang Pauli met the famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Pauli was fascinated by the inner reaches of his own psyche and not afraid to dabble in the occult, while Jung looked to science for answers to the psychological questions that tormented him. Their rich friendship led them, in Jung's words, into "the no-man's land between physics and the psychology of the unconscious ... the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times." Both were obsessed with the far-reaching significance of the number "137"--A primal number that seemed to hint at the origins of the universe itself. Their quest to solve its enigma led them on a lifelong journey into the ancient secrets of alchemy, the work of Johannes Kepler, and the Chinese Book of Changes (Yijing). This is the story of an extraordinary and fruitful collaboration between two of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century.--From publisher description
Sixty-two years of uncertainty : historical, philosophical, and physical inquiries into the foundations of quantum mechanics by Philosophical, and Physical Inquiries into the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics NATO Advanced Study Institute on Sixty-two Years of Uncertainty: Historical( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Spanish and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains proceedings from the International School of History of Science, Sixty-Two Years of Uncertainty: Historical Philosophical and Physical Inquiries into the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, convened at the Ettore Maj orana Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Sicily, 5-15 August 1989. In response to the high state of enth, usiasm from the sixty-one participants there were six to eight lectures each day, beginning at 9:00 AM and often ending at 7:00 PM. Vigorous discussions took place at every opportunity, even including the delightful excursions. The papers presented here are by the twelve invited lecturers (in some cases with coauthors) with a contribution from Philip Pearle. AU of us attending the conference express our appreciation to the exemplary staff of the Ettore Majorana Centre, and particularly to the Centre's Director, Professor Antonino Zichichi. for superb hospitality which made this conference a memorable intellectual and cultural experience.

P.W. Bridgman and the Special Theory oj Relativity Ey W. Bridgman wrote A S, phi, ticati<him" (1962) for the reader "who feels the need to stand back a little for a critical scrutiny of what he has really got" (SP, p. 3). * This was his personal trademark as physicist and philosoƯ pher and it is present everywhere in Bridgman's precis of special relativity theory. The reissue of Sophisticate's Primer is particularly welƯ come for it exhibits a quest for clarity in foundations in the style of Ernst Mach and Henri Poincare, in whose philo- " N.B. Papers and books are here cited as follows. Bridgman (1927) refers to Bridgman's book The Logic of Modern Physics in the bibliography. Cross-references to Sophisticate's Primer are indicated with the code (SP, p. "'). Bridgman's extant manuscripts are on deposit at the Harvard University Archives, and here cited by date, for example (MS 2 August 1959, p ...). Some of the manuscripts were written over a period of days, with sequential paging, with the actual dates indicated. Full citations are given in the bibliography. I am grateful to the Harvard University Archives for permission to quote from these materials, and to Bridgman's daughter, Mrs. Jane Koopman, for permitting me to quote from the draft manuscripts of Sophisticate's Primer, which will be deposited in the Harvard Archives.

Eistein y Picasso : el espacio, el tiempo y los estragos de la belleza by Arthur I Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Qué es la creatividad? ¿Existe algún vínculo entre la forma de pensar de un gran científico y la de un gran artista? Para responder estos interrogantes, este apasionante libro recorre las biografías paralelas de Einstein y Picasso, dos personalidades excepcionales que, a comienzos del Siglo XX, marcaron un hito en el pensamiento y el arte contemporáneos en circunstancias sorprendentemente similares, pues ambos estaban entonces en la veintena y eran prácticamente desconocidos. En efecto, Albert Einstein formuló en 1905 la teoría de la relatividad especial, y Pablo Picasso, con Las señoritas de Aviñón, echó por tierra casi cinco siglos de convenciones artísticas
