Hardcover, ID: 1056653785

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd. , 2009. First. Hardcover. New. 23 X 29. Numerous B/w and Colour Illustrations. The volumes of the Project of History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization aim to discover the central aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated manner. In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers, methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. Rather, contributions are made by different scholars of diverse ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called 'methodological pluralism'. In spite of its primarily historical character, this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is the first time that an endeavour of such unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. Organicism is a less common word; it replaces the term 'vitalism'. The 13 Chaptered Life and Organicism offers a blend of conceptual biology and philosophy. Besides elaborating what organicism is, the Volume describes the Vasudha eva kutumbakam and the Gaia hypothesis on origin of life, the historical biogeography of India, how the claims about 'genetically superior' races are baseless, how cell division phenomenon is central to organismal biology, and the neurobiological basis of ego. Furthermore, the book expounds the subject of consciousness as an amalgam of neuroscience, philosophy and mysticism, traces languages evolution and the roots to knowledge as biological themes, highlights the role of microbes in green chemistry and bioterrorism, unravels the novel concept of "Ayurgenomics" (an elegant synthesis of genomics with Ayurveda), narrates the impact of modern biology on agriculture and healthcare systems, and how researches on low birth weight babies and several re-emerging infections are ushering an era of molecular medicine, and aptly extols the motto "Think globally and act locally" embodied in Atharva Veda. The account on synthetic life and artificial organisms makes one ponder about what characterizes life. Indeed, the future of biology lies in understanding the nature and role of several kinds of 'languages' besides genetic code. The Volume is addressed to the educated laity, and not just to students or specialists. The sporadic illustrations complement the text. A glossary of technical terms, and a detailed index are provided. It is hoped that the Volume would kindle the readers' Interest to know more about life and organisms., Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2009, Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt.

Paperback. 0674003861 . ***HOLIDAY SALE - DISCOUNT APPLIED AT CHECKOUT*** IN STOCK AND IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE FOR SHIPMENT - 303pp - -- REVIEWS: From Library Journal: Since the 1970s, the Tourette Syndrome Association has attempted to educate Americans to react compassionately to the startling involuntary gestures and vocalizations, sometimes shocking or obscene, of Tourettes patients. An increasingly common North American diagnosis, Tourette syndrome affects 2.9 to 5.2 per 100,000 Americans, most frequently male. Kushner (history of medicine, San Diego State Univ. ) describes the shifting histories of this syndrome since it was first described by French neurologist Georges Gilles de la Tourette in 1885. Experts have variously attributed the Tourette complex of behaviors to moral defects, neurological damage, repressed sexual urges, and chemical imbalances. Such explanations, Kushner argues, conceal cultural assumptions that prevent physicians from fully hearing their patients stories and thus influence medical practice in damaging ways. Kushner cautions his readers that patients themselves, unconstrained by medical orthodoxy, have much to teach. A compassionate and absorbing work of medical history for academic and larger public libraries. Kathleen Arsenault, Univ. Of South Florida at St. Petersburg Lib. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Publisher Product Description: Over a century and a half ago, a French physician reported the bizarre behavior of a young aristocratic woman who would suddenly, without warning, erupt in a startling fit of obscene shouts and curses. The image of the afflicted Marquise de Dampierre echoes through the decades as the emblematic example of an illness that today represents one of the fastest-growing diagnoses in North America. Tourette syndrome is a set of behaviors, including recurrent ticcing and involuntary shouting (sometimes cursing) as well as obsessive-compulsive actions. The fascinating history of this syndrome reveals how cultural and medical assumptions have determined and radically altered its characterization and treatment from the early nineteenth century to the present. A Cursing Brain? traces the problematic classification of Tourette syndrome through three distinct but overlapping stories: that of the claims of medical knowledge, that of patients' experiences, and that of cultural expectations and assumptions. Earlier researchers asserted that the bizarre ticcing and impromptu vocalizations were psychological--resulting from sustained bad habits or lack of self-control. Today, patients exhibiting these behaviors are seen as suffering from a neurological disease and generally are treated with drug therapy. Although current clinical research indicates that Tourette's is an organic disorder, this pioneering history of the syndrome reminds us to be skeptical of medical orthodoxies so that we may stay open to fresh understandings and more effective interventions. -- with a bonus offer ., Harvard Univ Pr, 2000
