En su nuevo libro, brillante y provocativo, David Eagleman, un reconocido científico que trabaja en el campo de las neurociencias, navega por las profundidades del cerebro subconsciente para iluminar misterios soprendentes: ¿por qué nuestro pie avanza hacia el pedal del freno antes de que percibamos un peligro inminente? ¿Por qué nos damos cuenta de que alguien ha dicho nuestro nombre en una conversación que no estábamos escuchando? ¿Qué tienen en común Ulises y la contracción del crédito? ¿Por qué Thomas Alva Edison electrocutó un elefante en 1916? ¿Por qué las personas cuyo nombre comienza con «j» tienen mayores posibilidades de casarse con otras personas cuyo nombre también comienza con esta letra? ¿Por qué es tan difícil guardar un secreto? ¿Y cómo es posible enfurecerse con uno mismo? ¿Con quién está uno enfurecido en realidad? «Incógnito nos ofrece una versión notable de las consecuencias que tiene para nosotros el ascenso de la neurociencia como un instrumento para pensar . . .

Starting out as a harrowing wartime sea adventure, Burroughs?­s story ultimately develops into a lost world story reminiscent of such novels as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?­s The Lost World (1912) and Jules Verne?­s The Mysterious Island (1874) and Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864). Burroughs adds his own twist by postulating a unique biological system for his lost world, in which the slow progress of evolution in the world outside is recapitulated as a matter of individual metamorphosis.

Author:

describes the incredible saga of humankind's quest to unravel the deepest secrets of the universe. Over the past thirty years, scientists have learned that two little-­understood components--­dark matter and dark energy--­comprise most of the known cosmos, explain the growth of all cosmic structure, and hold the key to the universe's fate. The story of how evidence for the so-­called "Lambda-­Cold Dark Matter" model of cosmology has been gathered by generations of scientists throughout the world is told here by one of the pioneers of the field, Jeremiah Ostriker, and his coauthor Simon Mitton. From humankind's early attempts to comprehend Earth's place in the solar system, to astronomers' exploration of the Milky Way galaxy and the realm of the nebulae beyond, to the detection of the primordial fluctuations of energy from which all subsequent structure developed, this book explains the physics and the history of how the current model of our universe arose and has passed every test . . .

pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. Are these the only works of Providence within us? What words suffice to praise or set them forth? Had we but understanding, should we ever cease hymning and blessing the Divine Power, both openly and in secret, and telling of His gracious gifts? Whether digging or ploughing or eating, should we not sing the hymn to God:­—
