Science, Society, and the Supermarket by David Castle+

Science, Society, and the Supermarket: The Opportunities and Challenges of Nutrigenomics by David Castle, Cheryl Cline, Abdallah S. Daar, Charoula Tsamis, Peter A. Singer
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.1 Mb
Overview: Gene-diet interactions–which underlie relatively benign lactose intolerance to life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular disease–have long been known. But until now, scientists lacked the tools to fully understand the underlying mechanisms that cause these conditions. In recent years, however, strides in human genomics and the nutritional sciences have allowed for the advancement of a new science–dubbed nutrigenomics. Although this science may lead to personalized nutrition and dietary recommendations that can mitigate, prevent, or cure sickness, current oversight mechanisms and regulations for emerging direct-to-public nutrigenomic tests are still in their infancy.
Genre: Non-Fiction > General

Science Without God?: Rethinking the History of Scientific Naturalism by Peter Harrison, Jon H. Roberts
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10.3 Mb
Overview: Can scientific explanation ever make reference to God or the supernatural? The present consensus is no; indeed, a naturalistic stance is usually taken to be a distinguishing feature of modern science. Some would go further still, maintaining that the success of scientific explanation actually provides compelling evidence that there are no supernatural entities, and that true science, from the very beginning, was opposed to religious thinking. Science without God? Rethinking the History of Scientific Naturalism shows that the history of Western science presents us with a more nuanced picture. Beginning with the naturalists of ancient Greece, and proceeding through the middle ages, the scientific revolution, and into the nineteenth century, the contributors examine past ideas about ‘nature’ and ‘the supernatural’. Ranging over different scientific disciplines and historical periods, they show how past thinkers often relied upon theological ideas and presuppositions in their systematic investigations of the world. In addition to providing material that contributes to a history of ‘nature’ and naturalism, this collection challenges a number of widely held misconceptions about the history of scientific naturalism.
