Purpose and Desire: What Makes Something "Alive" and Why Modern Darwinism Has Failed to Explain It

by J. Scott Turner

A professor, biologist, and physiologist argues that modern Darwinism’s materialist and mechanistic biases have led to a scientific dead end, unable to define what life is—and only an openness to the qualities of "purpose and desire" will move the field forward.Scott Turner contends. "To be scientists, we force ourselves into a Hobson’s choice on the matter: accept intentionality and purposefulness as real attributes of life, which disqualifies you as a scientist; or become a scientist and dismiss life’s distinctive quality from your thinking. I have come to believe that this choice actually stands in the way of our having a fully coherent theory of life." Growing research shows that life's most distinctive quality, shared by all living things, is purpose and desire: maintain hom...

Handbook of Climate Change and Agroecosystems:The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Integrated Crop and Economic Assessments ... Change Impacts, Adaptation, and Mitiga

by Rosenzweig Cynthia & Hillel Daniel and Cynthia Rosenzweig

“Top agricultural scientists from around the world have taken up the challenge of sustainable agriculture, with the specific focus on integrating agronomic, climatological, biophysical and socio-economic perspectives and processes. Every chapter (of the Handbook) contributes to addressing the growing food-security challenges facing the world.”Foreword by Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia UniversityClimate effects on agriculture are of increasing concern in both the scientific and policy communities because of the growing population and the greater uncertainty in the weather during growing seasons. Changes in production are directly linked to variations in temperature and precipitation during the growing season and often to the offseason changes in weather becau...

Negotiating Bioethics: The Governance of UNESCO’s Bioethics Programme (Genetics and Society)

by Adèle Langlois

The sequencing of the entire human genome has opened up unprecedented possibilities for healthcare, but also ethical and social dilemmas about how these can be achieved, particularly in developing countries. UNESCO’s Bioethics Programme was established to address such issues in 1993. Since then, it has adopted three declarations on human genetics and bioethics (1997, 2003 and 2005), set up numerous training programmes around the world and debated the need for an international convention on human reproductive cloning. Negotiating Bioethics presents Langlois' research on the negotiation and implementation of the three declarations and the human cloning debate, based on fieldwork carried out in Kenya, South Africa, France and the UK, among policy-makers, geneticists, ethicists, civil societ...

The Thomson Ecology Handbook: A practical guide to wildlife legislation for project managers

by Thomson Ecology

The world's biodiversity is highly valued but is also highly threatened by various types of human activity. As a consequence, statutory measures are in place to protect habitats and wildlife. These measures range from global to local, and give protection to whole ecosystems or single species. Because there are now legal obligations in place for proposed developments to enhance the biodiversity of the site, and many species are protected by law, it is essential that project managers understand the importance of considering ecology early on in a project. Failure to address these issues can lead to expensive and lengthy project delays. The Thomson Ecology Handbook provides a general overview of current wildlife legislation, guidance and practical techniques, and is aimed at helping project ma...

It's Alive!: The Science of B-Movie Monsters (Chicago Shorts)

by Michael LaBarbera

The B-movie monster—be it gap-toothed gorilla, ripped-from-time dinosaur, overstretched arachnid, or another outrageous anthropomorphic fantasy—has thrilled moviegoers for decades, and firmly sunk its claws into popular culture. In It’s Alive!, Michael LaBarbera delves into the science behind these characters’ construction, from the biology surrounding tyrannosaurid postures in Jurassic Park and King Kong to the questionable physics employed by The Incredible Shrinking Man. Accompanied by a treasure trove of images from old movie posters and stills, and ranging from the 1930s to such recent films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the latest installments of the Alien franchise, It’s Alive! cleverly uses science to remind us that the best parts of moviemaking might indeed be mag...

Black Pearls and Red Tide

by Jay Maclean

The strange death of three young children in a small coastal village in far away Papua New Guinea in March 1972 did not rate a mention in the territory’s annual report that year to its Australian governors—let alone make a ripple in international ponds. Yet, it was an event of incredible proportions. It marked the end of a chain of knowledge that extended back more than 45,000 years; it heralded the beginning of an era of immense, baffling phenomena and disasters around the world; and it marked the rise of a deadly poison from the seabed that would spread from country to country. It is a story that encompasses much of the globe, from the Pacific islands to Asia—Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and the Philippines—to the Middle East—Persian Gulf and Red Sea, and the ...

FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition

by Jeremy Griffith and Professor Harry Prosen

Why do we thinking, rational, immensely clever, supposedly sensible beings behave so ruthlessly, competitively and selfishly that human life has become all but unbearable and we have nearly destroyed our own planet? Are we a flawed species, some sort of evolutionary mistake, fundamentally worthless beings—or are we possibly the absolute heroes of the story of life on Earth? How are we to make sense of the awesome contradictions of the human condition? Yes, how are we to truly understand ourselves—because without redeeming, biological understanding there can be no real peace for the human mind, no basis for the much-needed psychological rehabilitation and maturation of the human race.

Venturing, however, into the heart of darkness of this most foreboding of all frontiers fo...

How to build a digital microscope: construct a reliable, inexpensive microscope for both regular and polarized light microscopy

by Lasse Lu Pedersen

The microscope is the most important tool in the microbiologists toolbox. Nowadays, several companies sell very well made microscopes, but such a luxury was unknown to the earliest microbiologists. They had to build their own microscopes, and many advancements to the science of microbiology were made by people who managed to improve on their own private microscopes.
While basic models have become increasingly affordable in recent years, purchasing a digital microscope can still be a substantial investment - and one that many interested individuals, families, and schools are unwilling or unable to make. Fortunately, it has also become increasingly easy to get the parts for building your very own microscope at a price that is more approachable than that of commercial microscopes!

The Evolution of Aging

by Theodore Goldsmith

Why do we age? Many believe that aging is the result of fundamental and unalterable limitations. We can try to treat highly age-related diseases like cancer and heart disease but nothing can be done about aging itself. Anti-aging medicine is impossible. Others believe that we age because our bodies do not try harder to prevent damage from natural deteriorative processes. Eventually, we might find pharmaceutical agents that enhance our natural anti-aging functions. For many decades this second theory was considered the most likely. More recently, it has become increasingly clear that we age because we are designed to age and possess a sort of biological suicide or “programmed aging” mechanism that purposely limits our lifespans. Pharmaceutical agents can presumably be found that in...
