A masterful commentary on the history of science from the Greeks to modern times, by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg—a thought-provoking and important book by one of the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals of our time. In this rich, irreverent, and compelling history, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg takes us across centuries from ancient Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato’s Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral school of Chartres and the Royal Society of London. He shows that the scientists of ancient and medieval times not only did not understand what we understand about the world—they did not understand what there is to understand, or how to understand it. Yet over the centuries, through the struggle to solve such mysteries as the curious backward movement of the planets and the rise and fall of the tides, the modern discipline of science eventually emerged. Along the way, Weinberg examines historic clashes and collaborations between science and the competing spheres of religion, technology, poetry, mathematics, and philosophy. An illuminating exploration of the way we consider and analyze the world around us, To Explain the World is a sweeping, ambitious account of how difficult it was to discover the goals and methods of modern science, and the impact of this discovery on human knowledge and development.

A major research stream in computing focuses on building computing technologies which ease the specification, design, implementation and management of information systems. Any computer solution that frees the developer to interact directly with users or the physical configuration of the computing technology, or improves any feature of the act of delivering a computing application, can be called a support technology. In this volume, the focus is on the impacts of computer assisted software engineering tools (CASE), tools for group cooperation and collaboration (also called group decision support system, or GDSS), and other computer supported technologies. The lead paper, by Lyytinen and Kendall, provides a framework for the volume, showing how the contributions fall into groups revealing the progress of research in each individual area. In addition to contributed papers, three authors were invited to send lively, controversial papers. These three articles were written by Bill Curtis, Matthias Jarke and Paul Gray.
