The nervous systems of invertebrates : an evolutionary and comparative approach by Olaf Breidbach( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume outstanding specialists review the state of the art in nervous system research for all main invertebrate groups. They provide a comprehensive up-to-date analysis important for everyone working on neuronal aspects of single groups, as well as taking into account the phylogenesis of invertebrates. The articles report on recently gained knowledge about diversification in the invertebrate nervous systems, and demonstrate the analytical power of a comparative approach. Novel techniques in molecular and developmental biology are creating new perspectives that point toward a theoretical foundation for a modern organismic biology. The comparative approach, as documented here, will engage the interest of anyone challenged by the problem of structural diversification in biology
Bilder des Wissens : zur Kulturgeschichte der wissenschaftlichen Wahrnehmung by Olaf Breidbach( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der wissenschaftlichen Wahrnehmungen zeigt uns wie die Wissenschaften in unsere Kultur eingebunden sind. Sehen ist nicht einfach die Wahrnehmung dessen, was da ist. Die Objektivität der Naturwissenschaften gründet zwar darauf, dass es jemanden gibt, der zuschaut. Aber die Wahrheiten werden nicht einfach durch wahrnehmen gefunden.>Bilder des Wissens<sucht den Raum abzuschreiten, den diese Fragen eröffnen. Das Buch fragt, wie wir uns dieser naturwissenschaftlichen Erfahrung sicher sein können. Dabei findet es die Antwort in der Geschichte, die zeigt, wie sich die Welt-Bilder der Wissenschaften entwickelt haben. Ausgehend von der Antike werden die wesentlichen Phasen in der Entwicklung der wissenschaftlichen Beobachtungen skizziert. Breidbach diskutiert das Verhältnis von Erfahrung, Beobachtung und Experiment und erläutert die Genese der wissenschaftlichen Bildwelten. Dabei zeigt er auf, wo in den Beobachtungen der Wissenschaft neue Facetten einer Wahrnehmungskultur dieser Wissenschaften erwuchsen und wie sie zu bewerten sind. Aus dem Inhalt Erfahrung wissen Sehen - Beobachten - Experiment Zur Wissenschafts-Geschichte des Beobachtens Mittelalterliche Buchbilder und Tafelbilder Von der Standardisierung der Beobachtung Artefakte und Natur-beobachtungen I: Der freie Fall - Galileo Galilei Artefakte und Natur-beobachtungen II: Die Entdeckung des Blutkreislaufs durch William Harvey Sehen und Illustration Bilder und Beobachtungen Galileis Monde Pflanzenbilder Mikrophotographien Haeckels Embryonenbilder Zur Archäologie des Blickes Beobachtungsbestimmungen Wissenschaftstheorie und Experiment Naturwissenschaft als Geisteswissenschaft

The transformation of science in Germany at the beginning of the nineteenth century : physics, mathematics, poetry, and philosophy by Roswitha Burwick( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books have looked at early nineteenth century science through the lens of the whole of Europe. This book takes a solidly Germanic view of natural science, depicting a view of natural science. It dismantles the well-worn cliché of a speculative philosophy and an empirical natural science that began to move further and further away from each other, ultimately becoming irreconcilable. Such an interpretation of the physical-philosophical discourse into different disciplines imposes the dualistic viewpoint of our own time onto an era where erecting such categorical boundaries between knowledge
