  • The Oxford Handbook of Engineering and Technology in the Classical World

  • The Oxford Handbook of Engineering and Technology in the Classical World
    Nearly every aspect of daily life in the Mediterranean world and Europe during the florescence of the Greek and Roman cultures is relevant to the topics of engineering and technology. This volume highlights both the accomplishments of the ancient societies and the remaining research problems, and stimulates further progress in the history of ancient technology. The subject matter of the book is the technological framework of the Greek and Roman cultures from ca. 800 B.C. through ca. A.D. 500 in the circum-Mediterranean world and Northern Europe. Each chapter discusses a technology or family of technologies from an analytical rather than descriptive point of view, providing a critical summation of our present knowledge of the Greek and Roman accomplishments in the technology concerned and the evolution of their technical capabilities over the chronological period. Each presentation reviews the issues and recent contributions, and defines the capacities and accomplishments of the technology in the context of the society that used it, the available "technological shelf," and the resources consumed. These studies introduce and synthesize the results of excavation or specialized studies. The chapters are organized in sections progressing from sources (written and representational) to primary (e.g, mining, metallurgy, agriculture) and secondary (e.g, woodworking, glass production, food preparation, textile production and leather-working) production, to technologies of social organi

  • Ethics, Science, Technology, and Engineering: A Global Resource

  • Ethics, Science, Technology, and Engineering: A Global Resource
    Described by Catholic World (2006) as "a treasure trove for beginning literacy" in the disciplines of science, technology, and ethics, the 2005 edition of Encyclopedia Of Science, Technology, and Ethics (ESTE) is being revised to include new analytical and interpretive essays on the events, scholarship, people, and legal decisions that have marked the period since the first edition was researched and published. In addition, to help make ESTE more global and interdisciplinary in scope and reach, the second edition will engage consultants from ethics centers around the world, and will feature the revised title Ethics, Science, Technology, and Engineering: A Global Resource. Highlights of the new edition include an updated glossary and chronology, in addition to scores of new entries, hundreds of revised entries, and more than 300 graphics/images. To be published in four volumes by Macmillan Reference USA, an imprint of Gale/Cengage Learning.

  • Darwin's Devices: What Evoloving Robots Can Teach Us About the History of Life and the Future of Technology

  • Darwin's Devices: What Evoloving Robots Can Teach Us About the History of Life and the Future of Technology
    What happens when we let robots play the game of life? The challenge of studying evolution is that the history of life is buried in the past-we can't witness the dramatic events that shaped the adaptations we see today. But biorobotics expert John Long has found an ingenious way to overcome this problem: he creates robots that look and behave like extinct animals, subjects them to evolutionary pressures, lets them compete for mates and resources, and mutates their 'genes'. In short, he lets robots play the game of life. In "Darwin's Devices," Long tells the story of these evolving biorobots-how they came to be, and what they can teach us about the biology of living and extinct species. Evolving biorobots can replicate creatures that disappeared from the earth long ago, showing us in real time what happens in the face of unexpected environmental challenges. Biomechanically correct models of backbones functioning as part of an autonomous robot, for example, can help us understand why the first vertebrates evolved them. But the most impressive feature of these robots, as Long shows, is their ability to illustrate the power of evolution to solve difficult technological challenges autonomously-without human input regarding what a workable solution might be. Even a simple robot can create complex behavior, often learning or evolving greater intelligence than humans could possibly program. This remarkable idea could forever alter the face of engineering, design, and even warfare. An

  • Beyond Engineering: How Society Shapes Technology

  • Beyond Engineering: How Society Shapes Technology
    We have long recognized technology as a driving force behind much historical and cultural change. The invention of the printing press initiated the Reformation. The development of the compass ushered in the Age of Exploration and the discovery of the New World. The cotton gin created the conditions that led to the Civil War. Now, in Beyond Engineering, science writer Robert Pool turns the question around to examine how society shapes technology. Drawing on such disparate fields as history, economics, risk analysis, management science, sociology, and psychology, Pool illuminates the complex, often fascinating interplay between machines and society, in a book that will revolutionize how we think about technology. We tend to think that reason guides technological development, that engineering expertise alone determines the final form an invention takes. But if you look closely enough at the history of any invention, says Pool, you will find that factors unrelated to engineering seem to have an almost equal impact. In his wide-ranging volume, he traces developments in nuclear energy, automobiles, light bulbs, commercial electricity, and personal computers, to reveal that the ultimate shape of a technology often has as much to do with outside and unforeseen forces. For instance, Pool explores the reasons why steam-powered cars lost out to internal combustion engines. He shows that the Stanley Steamer was in many ways superior to the Model T-it set a land speed record in 1906 of mo

  • Stem for All Ages: How Science, technology, engineering & Math Drive Progress

  • The brothers who invented the first successful aircraft were not Orville and Wilbur. They were preceded by the Montgolfier brothers 120 years earlier in a type of aircraft still in wide use today. 150 years before them, the Celebi brothers made the first survivable rocket and intercontinental flights. with the goal of providing an interesting learning experience, the book's focus is not just on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Also included is analysis of Cause & Effect and a lot of surprising history. So it is not just about HOW things work, it is also about WHY they happened that way, and the consequences. Roughly every 500 years new technology completely disrupts society, changing borders, laws, and the way people live and work. It happened again with the emergence of the Digital Age. Because aviation involves many fields of science, it is a particularly interesting way to show how STEM is a continuum of mutually supporting elements. Applications of chemistry, physics, astronomy, navigation, programming, and paradigm paralysis are presented in a hands-on understandable way.
