  • Foundations of Science;
  • [Classical & Modern] Physics/Mathematics/Astronomy & related to Chemistry, Engineering, Applied Sciences & Technology
  • Mainly: New essays in History of Physics ranging across the entire field and related in most instance to the works of Salvo D'Agostino, one of the main field's scholars since the second half of the past century. All mechanisms are mechanisms of a phenomenon? A phenomenon is an observable measurable fact, including data modelling, assumptions/laws. A mechanical phenomenon is associated to equilibrium/motion. What about in thermodynamics, electromagnetism and modern physics with respect to the ideas within cultures and lives? In the past, mechanics/mechanisms basically assumed planetary and terrestrial motions. Then, it devoted to understanding of causations of disequilibrium (shocking, gravitational, attraction/repulsion, etc.) until apparent incoherence from Quantum Mechanics and Relativities. The book analyses Phenomena, Ideas & Mechanisms both as regular changes/interaction and in the framework of irregular cases of modern physics. Implications & limits will be explored.
