We often hear Claude Shannon called the father of the Digital Age.

  • America, describing the Cabot voyages. This volume begins a detailed story of the English settlement, and its title indicates the conception of the author that during the first half-century the American colonies were simply outlying portions of the English nation, but that owing to disturbances culminating in civil war they had the opportunity to develop on lines not suggested by the home government. The first two chapters deal with the unsuccessful attempts to plant English colonies, especially by Gilbert and Raleigh.

  • Our modern world begins with the Protestant Reformation. The term itself is objected to by Catholics, who claim that there was little real reform. But the importance of the event, whether we call it reform or revolution, is undenied. Previous to 1517 the nations of Europe had formed a single spiritual family under the acknowledged leadership of the Pope. The extent of the Holy Father's authority might be disputed, especially when he interfered in affairs of state. Kings had fought against his troops on the field of battle.

  • Many people in the field of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) share the belief that a revolution is under way. As MEMS begin to permeate more and more industrial procedures, not only engineering but society as a whole will be strongly affected. MEMS provide a new design technology that could rival, and perhaps even surpass, the societal impact of integrated circuits (ICs). Is this fact or fiction? If it is fact, then several questions must be asked.

  • The textbook written by Paul Davies in 19891 entitled, The New Physics, commenced with the following opinion. Many elderly scientists look back nostalgically at the first 30 years of the 20th century, and refer to it as the golden age of physics. Historians, however, may come to regard those years as the dawning of the New Physics. The events which the quantum and relativity theories set in train are only now impinging on science, and many physicists believe that the golden age was only the beginning of the revolution....

The essays in this book, however, have to do with beginnings. How, for example, do we advance a long-delayed solar revolution? Or begin one in forest management? Or materials use? How do we reimagine and remake the human presence on earth in ways that work over the long haul? Such questions are the heart of what theologian Thomas Berry (1999) calls “the Great Work” of our age....
