            How can we explain the remarkable human capacity to create and innovate? Previous attempts at uncovering this unique ability have overlooked a big clue to our human nature, by looking at the typical population instead of shining a spotlight on those at the extreme. This book offe...rs a refreshing study on autism, giving a unique perspective on the evolution of human invention. By linking the remarkable history of this singular human trait with the underrepresented and often misunderstood image of an autistic person, socially isolated, obsessively spotting patterns and collecting facts, this book offers the unique chance to appreciate both autism and invention in a new light, and as causes for celebration.

These issues pose challenges for ...organizations, businesses, and communities, and engineers will need to begin developing ideas and projects to implement the transition of engineered systems. This work presents a methodology for shifting away from unsustainable activities. Teaching the Transition Engineering approach and methodology is the focus of the text, and the concept is presented in a way that engineers can begin applying it in their work.

            The Knowledge Machine: How an Unreasonable Idea Created Modern Science (Hardback)

            • Internationally sourced

            To grasp how science has transformed our world in the modern era, we must ask two important questions: why is science so powerful? And why did we take so long to invent it - two thousand years after the invention of philosophy and mathematics? The Knowledge Machine's radical answ...er is that science calls on its practitioners to do something irrational: by wilfully ignoring theology, metaphysics and theoretical beauty - in essence, stripping all previous knowledge away - scientists channel unprecedented energy into observation and experiment. Like Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens or Thomas Kuhn's 1962 classic The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, The Knowledge Machine overturns what we thought we knew about the origins of the modern world.
