简介

IPB Image
这是一套很特别地以跨学科的方式来研究,而一般仅是从科学或哲学的面向作处理。编者Birx是纽约州立大学一位杰出的研究学者,是获奖的编辑,也是许多本人类学与演化著作的作家,他组织了一个另人印像深刻的工作团队,包括许多图书馆学专家,研究科学、哲学、文化等,隐藏在时间背后的现象,如在导言中所说的,这本著作主要的目标是要从每一个可想像的角度去发展一个现代的时间感知...。

“This unique set takes a strong interdisciplinary approach to a subject that is normally treated only from the scientific or philosophical perspective. Editor Birx (anthropology, Canisius Coll.), a Distinguished Research Scholar at SUNY Geneseo and an award-winning editor and author of numerous works on anthropology and evolution, has assembled an impressive team of contributors, including several librarians, to study the science, philosophy, theology, and culture behind the phenomenon of time. As stated in the introduction, the work’s ambitious goal is to develop a modern awareness of and appreciation for time from every angle imaginable. The biographical entries cover figures like Karl Barth and Karl Marx, while those dealing with culture cover concepts like materialism and weapons. A handy Reader’s Guide lists which entries fall under such broad categories as Biography, Physics/Chemistry, or Theories/Concepts. All of the 600-plus entries appear thorough and authoritative but are written in an easily readable style. BOTTOM LINE With a strong interdisciplinary approach to a subject that does not lend itself easily to the reference format, this work may not seem to support directly academic programs beyond general research, but it is a more thorough and up-to-date treatment than Taylor and Francis’s 1994 Encyclopedia of Time. Highly recommended.”
-Samantha Schmehl Hines, Univ. of Montana Lib., Missoula (Samantha Schmehl Hines Library Journal )

  2. 提问之前请再仔细看一遍楼主的说明,或许是您遗漏了。

  4. 请勿到处挖坑绊人、招贴广告。既占空间让人厌烦,又没人会搭理,于人于己都无利。
