Engaging the Cosmos PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Engaging the Cosmos free pdf Written by an experienced author with a strong background in both History and Earth Sciences, this text explores the philosophic implications of the dramatic developments now under way in astrophysics and astrobiology. How close may this progress, empirical and theoretical, bring us to a definitive understanding of ultimate realities? What could it connote for the future of the great religious obediences? What might it mean for the evolution of a planetary consciousness that could be the key to the survival of our overburdened world? Are there not alarming possibilities, yet also very positive ones? Not merely will this discussion take full but measured account of hard science in a manner accessible to lay people, but the arguments and observations presented will be set firmly in a deep historical perspective.

About Neville Brown

Neville Brown has authored twelve books or major reports, including The Future of Air Power (1986). With the award-winning Future Global Challenge (1977), he began to give economic, social and ecological factors salience in the quest for a peaceable world. This thrust has continued with New Strategy Through Space (1990) through to Global Instability and Strategic Crisis (2004). His History and Climate Change, a Eurocentric Perspective (2001) reviews the last two millennia. In 1990, Professor Brown was elected a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, mainly in recognition of his work at Leicester and on New Strategy Through Space. In 1995, the University of Birmingham conferred on him an official Doctorate of Science in Applied Geophysics.
