Pianeti tra le note: Appunti di un astronomo divulgatore

Pianeti tra le note: Appunti di un astronomo divulgatore by Angelo Adamo
Italiano | PDF | 2010 | 286 Pages | ISBN : 8847011841 | 84.2 MB

Una stella, otto pianeti, un centinaio di lune e una miriade di corpi minori tra plutini, asteroidi, comete, satelliti artificiali. E per ognuno di questi oggetti, spiegazioni scientifiche che condividono la scena con narrazioni dettate dal mito, con visioni della fanstascienza e con suggestioni sonore scaturite dalla penna di grandi compositori. L'autore prova a districarsi nella babele di idiomi più o meno precisi che da sempre vengono usati dagli uomini per descrivere il Sistema Solare nell'intento di spiegarlo e di rendere il freddo spazio interplanetario un posto più accogliente. La letteratura, la fisica, il fumetto, l'illustrazione, la musica finalmente cooperano per delineare un possibile percorso, una traiettoria fra le tante, che condurrà il lettore dalle origini del linguaggio fino alla nube di Oort.

La fine dei cieli di cristallo: L’astronomia al bivio del ‘600 by Roberto Buonanno
Italiano | PDF | 2010 | 228 Pages | ISBN : 8847014972 | 1.4 MB

Questo libro parla del rapporto fra Galileo e alcuni scienziati della sua epoca comunemente considerati come esponenti dello "schieramento avverso". È l’epoca in cui la visione del cosmo cambia radicalmente: la cultura europea non appare più al centro della storia umana, la creazione dell’uomo si sposta all’indietro di una inimmaginabile quantità di anni e, infine, i cieli immutabili della cosmologia aristotelica, i cieli di cristallo, vengono definitivamente superati.

The first book-length study to address issues in modal logic at the eve of the Renaissance, this monograph provides important new insights into the way the debates on modal logic during the post-medieval period tied in with the so-called Wegestreit, the divide between the via antiqua and via moderna that dominated the discourse on logic during the 15th and early 16th centuries.
