Most Read This Week In Science
Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning “knowledge”) is the effort to discover, and increase human understanding of how the physical world works. Through controlled methods, science uses observable physical evidence of natural phenomena to collect data, and analyzes this information to explain what and how things work.
“ The Seven Social Sins are: Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character. Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle. From a sermon given by Frederick Lewis Donaldson in Westminster Abbey, London, on March 20, 1925. ”

[close] Welcome to a new ‘Book Talk Club’, where you can read interviews and conversations with authors of non-fiction books. The focus is on science and technology books, but, as science is concerned with and connected to everything else, we’ll also talk about history, food, sports, or science-fiction (anything and everything is interesting, as any bookworm knows very well).

[close] The world is full of stories and clues about how to best live the lives we've been gifted. It is our responsibility to discover and study these patterns and apply them so as to advance the cause of humanity. All of human history is inextricably linked with the history of the universe and all of it is guided by a few key fundamental truths. These truths lie in the fields of physics (our way of describing the natural world - how thing work) and philosophy (our way of describing that which lies beyond the physical world - why things are) and must be discovered by each individual in their own right and in their own time. Just as wisdom must be built through knowledge, experience, and time, these truths are revealed in a similar fashion. They lie in our collective history, our stories, our science, our cultures, and it is our job to study these. EFARS exists for the sole purpose of building community around the pursuit of these truths, for knowledge without the ability to share and refine it is useless.

[close] The Green group is about living in a sustainable manner--how human activity affects the environment and how a changing climate/environment affects how humans live their lives. Are we making good decisions on a personal level? business level? policy level? Discuss! We read fiction and non-fiction that explore these concerns.
