📒Understanding Popular Science ✍ Broks, Peter
📝Understanding Popular Science Book Synopsis : Science is a defining feature of the modern world, and popular science is where most of us make sense of that fact. Understanding Popular Scienceprovides a framework to help understand the development of popular science and current debates about it. In a lively and accessible style, Peter Broks shows how popular science has been invented, redefined and fought over. From early-nineteenth century radical science to twenty-first century government initiatives, he examines popular science as an arena where the authority of science and the authority of the state are legitimized and challenged. The book includes clear accounts of the public perception of scientists, visions of the future, fears of an â€œanti-scienceâ€ movement and concerns about scientific literacy. The final chapter proposes a new model for understanding the interaction between lay and expert knowledge. This book is essential reading in cultural studies, science studies, history of science and science communication.
📒Conjuring The Universe ✍ Peter Atkins
📝Conjuring the Universe Book Synopsis : The marvellous complexity of the Universe emerges from several deep laws and a handful of fundamental constants that fix its shape, scale, and destiny. There is a deep structure to the world which at the same time is simple, elegant, and beautiful. Where did these laws and these constants come from? And why are the laws so fruitful when written in the language of mathematics? Peter Atkins considers the minimum effort needed to equip the Universe with its laws and its constants. He explores the origin of the conservation of energy, of electromagnetism, of classical and quantum mechanics, and of thermodynamics, showing how all these laws spring from deep symmetries. The revolutionary result is a short but immensely rich weaving together of the fundamental ideas of physics. With his characteristic wit, erudition, and economy, Atkins sketches out how the laws of Nature can spring from very little. Or arguably from nothing at all.

📒Popular Science And Public Opinion In Eighteenth Century France ✍ Michael R. Lynn
📝Popular Science and Public Opinion in Eighteenth Century France Book Synopsis : In this book, Michael R. Lynn analyses the popularisation of science in Enlightenment France. He examines the content of popular science, the methods of dissemination, the status of the popularisers and the audience, and the settings for dissemination and appropriation. Lynn introduces individuals like Jean-Antoine Nollet, who made a career out of applying electric shocks to people, and Perrin, who used his talented dog to lure customers to his physics show. He also examines scientifically oriented clubs like Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier's Musée de Monsieur which provided locations for people interested in science. Phenomena such as divining rods, used to find water and ores as well as to solve crimes; and balloons, the most spectacular of all types of popular science, demonstrate how people made use of their new knowledge. Lynn's study provides a clearer understanding of the role played by science in the Republic of Letters and the participation of the general population in the formation of public opinion on scientific matters.

📒Flipping The Translation In Popular Science ✍ Dr. Pei-Shu Tsai
📝Flipping the Translation in Popular Science Book Synopsis : Summary Flipping the Translation in Popular Science is a collection of Dr. Tsai’s research and teaching experiences over the years as an instructor of courses on popular science and translation, and on translation practice in both directions between Chinese and English. The research material covers the latest science articles published through 2014-2016, providing translation examples with updates of technological development and new information on scientific matters. The book looks into common errors made by translation students, categorizes the reasons for such analysis error, and offers practical solutions and principles for translators to practice translation on scientific subjects. Key Features The author of the book has both a linguistics and a neuroscience background, providing a cross-disciplinary perspective to the discipline of translation. The participants in the study are graduate students of a translation and interpreting program, thus the discussion in the book avoids basic grammar and spelling errors that beginning learners of English would make. Data provided in this study are specific to translation as an academic research subject, not translation as a medium in English teaching. The book provides real-life translation examples from two directions, from English to Chinese, and from Chinese to English. Information about the Author Dr. Pei-Shu Tsai is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Institute of Translation and Interpretation, National Changhua University of Education, Taiwan. She received a MA in linguistics at National Taiwan University and obtained training in cognitive neuroscience for her PhD study at National Yang-Ming University. Her research interests cover linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, and first/second-language acquisition, with a focus on semantics and ambiguity at lexical, sentential, pragmatic, and cultural levels.
