In The Nature of the Book, a tour de force of cultural history, Adrian Johns constructs an entirely original and vivid picture of print culture and its many arenascommercial, intellectual, political, /5(7). The Nature Book is a great guide to the natural world, both for the beginner and those who want to relearn the most important and interesting facts about our fascinating environment, including: identifying rock formations; names of berries; flora and fauna; phases of the moon; the seasons; seas and rivers; and birds and other wildlife/5(2). In conclusion, some books as well as scientific discoveries, paintings, music, etc., lay dormant for decades or more before they are widely accepted or appreciated.

The Book of Nature. The idea of the Book as a totality, as a complete and unified structure that galvanizes the polyvalency of language into a single, determinate meaning, was (and perhaps in a residual sense still is) the model for our understanding of the world itself, for the way in which people try to make sense of the irreducible complexity of what we call nature, or reality. This volume explores the development of the natural world, with chapters titled Out of the Wilderness, The Mediterranean World, The Chinese Way, The Plow and the Cross, Expansion and Exchange, and the final one, The Global Challenge, dealing with the environmental and ecological problems we face today. As always, a fascinating reading experience/5. - Eric Weiner, New York Times best-selling author of The Geography of Genius “ The Nature Fix is a beautifully written, thoroughly enjoyable exposition of a major principle of human life now supported by evidence in biology, psychology, and medicine.” - Edward Cited by: 9. Furthermore, the book of nature reveals God’s invisible qualities. The apostle Paul said exactly that: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” (Romans ). Finally, the book.
The book opens with a short but programmatically important introduction in which Eddington describes two parallel worlds: the world of concrete, sensible reality and the world described by physics. He suggests that modern advances have rendered the latter increasingly detached from the former. The Idea of the World offers a grounded alternative to the frenzy of unrestrained abstractions and unexamined assumptions in philosophy and science today. This book examines what can be learned about the nature of reality based on conceptual parsimony, straightforward logic and empirical evidence from fields as diverse as physics and neuroscience/5(78). The Book of Nature is a religious and philosophical concept originating in the Latin Middle Ages which views nature as a book to be read for knowledge and understanding. There also was a book written by Conrad of Megenberg in the 14th century with the original German title of "Buch der Natur".
