Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book for the reader who wants to learn what physics is all about - and for the person who has taken a few physics courses in high school, but wants to learn more about its diverse theories and historical development. Even if you have taken college-level physics courses, you might not necessarily know the fascinating history of physics development, and the backgrounds of physicists who contributed to that development, such as Kepler, Newton, the Bernoulli family, Planck, Bohr, Einstein, von Neumann and Oppenheimer, to name only a few. And of course, if you want to learn why world civilization still suffers from a hiatus in the advancement of science in general - and physics in particular - this is the book for you. In 2006, Allan Karson received enthusiastic feedback for his book idea, and was told that Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book that is very much needed. Now, 10 years later, this work is finally ready. - This book is written for intelligent, inquiring people; it does not talk down to them. - This book is exciting. Each chapter presents a different historical time period and a different physics discipline. This changing environment presents a continuing challenge. There are no long, non-factual, non-interesting or dull descriptions. - This book keeps the quantity of math equations to a minimum. Only one equation is presented and explained in detail: Einstein's fascinating equation that transforms how people, objects and clocks appear to change when they are moving at speeds that approach the speed of light. - There are no 'heavy' descriptions of physics theories; charts are used to provide supporting explanations and description points in charts usually consist of one-liners. - This book's sources have been scrupulously read to assure correct and complete details. Dive in to the mesmerizing world of the history and future of physics with Science Slept Sixteen Centuries.

Celebrated connoisseur, drawings collector, print dealer, book publisher and authority on the art of antiquity, Pierre-Jean Mariette (1694-1774) was a pivotal figure in the eighteenth-century European art world. Focusing on the trajectory of Mariette?s career, this book examines the material practices and social networks through which connoisseurs forged the idea of art as an object of empirical and historical analysis. Drawing on significant unpublished archival material as well as on histories of science, publishing, collecting and display, this book shows how Mariette and his colleagues? practices of classification and interpretation of the graphic arts gave rise to new conceptions of artistic authorship and to a history of art that transcended the biographies of individual artists. To follow Mariette?s career through the eighteenth century is to see that art was consolidated as a specialized category of intellectual inquiry-and that style emerged as its structuring analytic device-in the overlapping spaces of the collector?s cabinet, the connoisseur?s portfolio and the dealer?s shop.

Does the early bird really catch the worm, or end up healthy, wealthy, and wise? Can some people really exist on just a few hours' sleep a night? Does everybody dream? Do fish dream? How did people cope before alarm clocks and caffeine? And is anybody getting enough sleep? Even though we will devote a third of our lives to sleep, we still know remarkably little about its origins and purpose. Paul Martin's Counting Sheep answers these questions and more in this illuminating work of popular science. Even the wonders of yawning, the perils of sleepwalking, and the strange ubiquity of nocturnal erections are explained in full. To sleep, to dream: Counting Sheep reflects the centrality of these activities to our lives and can help readers respect, understand, and extract more pleasure from that delicious time when they're lost to the world.

This is the first comprehensive study of David Gans of Renaissance Prague, the little studied pioneer of Jewish historiography and astronomy. The book describes Gans' outstanding work in geography and history and his attempt to reconcile the system of Copernicus with his own role as an assistant to Tycho Brahe. This biography not only sets Gans in his Jewish intellectual and religious context but it also links him to the great spiritual revolutions of the 16th century.
