How Invention Begins: Echoes of Old Voices in the Rise of New Machines

By John H. Lienhard

In How Invention Begins, Lienhard reconciles the ends of invention with the person leaps upon which they're equipped, illuminating the big net of person inspirations that lie in the back of complete applied sciences. He strains, for example, the way hundreds of thousands of individuals utilized their mixed creative genius to airplanes, railroad engines, and vehicles. As he does so, it turns into transparent collective hope, an upwelling of fascination, a spirit of the times--a Zeitgeist--laid its carry upon inventors. the object all of them sought to create was once velocity itself. Likewise, Lienhard exhibits that once we hint the astonishingly advanced know-how of printing books, we come eventually to that which we wish from books--the wisdom, the educational, that they supply. will we converse of velocity or schooling as innovations? to take action, he concludes, is unquestionably no better a stretch than it's to name radio or the phone an "invention."

all through this impressive quantity, Lienhard illuminates those webs of perception or proposal by way of weaving a cloth of anecdote, historical past, and technical detail--all of which come jointly to supply an entire and pleasant portrait of the genuine nature of invention.

Beyond Imported Magic: Essays on Science, Technology, and Society in Latin America (Inside Technology)

By Eden Medina, Ivan da Costa Marques, Christina Holmes

The essays during this quantity learn the production, variation, and use of technology and expertise in Latin the US. They problem the view that medical rules and expertise commute unchanged from the worldwide North to the worldwide South -- the view of expertise as "imported magic." They describe not just trade pathways for innovation, invention, and discovery but in addition how rules and applied sciences move in Latin American contexts and transnationally. The members' explorations of those concerns, and their exam of particular Latin American reports with technological know-how and know-how, provide a broader, extra nuanced figuring out of the way technology, expertise, politics, and tool have interaction some time past and present.

The essays during this ebook use equipment from historical past and the social sciences to enquire different types of neighborhood construction and use of applied sciences; the move of rules, humans, and artifacts in neighborhood and international networks; and hybrid applied sciences and varieties of wisdom creation. They deal with such subject matters because the paintings of lady forensic geneticists in Colombia; the pioneering Argentinean use of fingerprinting know-how within the overdue 19th century; the layout, use, and which means of the XO Laptops created and allotted through the only machine in keeping with baby software; and the improvement of nuclear power in Argentina, Mexico, and Chile.
