Title: Nanoscience & Nanotechnologies. Critical Problems, Science in Society, Historical Perspectives

Twofold (Main) Subject: 1) ''Nanoscience & Nanotechnologies'' 2) ''Historical/Philosophical Analysis/Perspectives'' and ''Science in Society (including Teaching/Education)''.

Guest Editor: Raffaele Pisano (IEMN, Lille University, France)

Springer Book Series: Nanotechnology in the Life Sciences: https://www.springer.com/series/15921

Rationale, Contents & Criteria, Mainly: Nanoscience has been exploring new modelling and new devices in the Applied Sciences & Technologies at the boundaries of Health/Life Sciences, Structures, NanoMachines, Computational, Communications, Environmental, Materials/Hybrid, closing the gap in Society towards a sustainable civilization. Feynman's Plenty of Room (1959; 1964) heritage opened a new Science in Society debate: how can we handle the applications––and––implications of Nanoscience? What is the human factor in the 21st century? This collected volume aims at both the state of the art in the field (few disciplinary scientific state of-the-art works) and the corresponding research–discussion of the exciting developments in nanoscience technologies, including historical and societal aspects. For the first time, in a unique volume, it brings together cutting–edge essays, both disciplinary and historical–epistemological, by leading authoritative scholars in the field. This book’s composition makes for absorbing reading for scientists, historians and science & society in context scholar. Covid works are welcome.
