There is a paradox when it comes to Darwinian ideas within the academy. On one hand, Darwin's theories have famously changed the foundational ideas related to the origins of life, shaping entire disciplines in the biological sciences. On the other hand, people in educated societies across the globe today are famously misinformed and uneducated about Darwinian principles and ideas. Applications of evolutionary theory outside the traditional areas of biology have been slow to progress, and scholars doing such work regularly run into all kinds of political backlash. However, a slow but steady push to advance the teaching of evolution across academic disciplines has been under way for more than a decade. This book serves to integrate the vast literature in the interdisciplinary field of Evolutionary Studies (EvoS), providing clear examples of how evolutionary concepts relate to all facets of life. Further, this book provides chapters dedicated to the processes associated with an EvoS education, including examples of how an interdisciplinary approach to evolutionary theory has been implemented successfully at various colleges, universities, and degree programs. This book also offers chapters outlining a variety of applications to an evolution education, including improved sustainable development, medical practices, and creative and critical thinking skills. Exploring controversies surrounding evolution education, this volume provides a roadmap to asking and answering Darwinian questions across all areas of intellectual inquiry.

Emerson's lifelong interest in science is well documented in his journals, lectures, essays, letters and poems. He was especially interested in Goethean science, which both heavily influenced his monisticism and in turn kept him at arms length from Swedenborg's mysticism and pseudo-sciences of his day such as phrenology, palmistry and astrology.Emerson maintained a spiritually-oriented worldview whilst still believing in the progress of science. Obuchowski shows how the Goethean context helps to explain what he calls Emerson's 'scientific mysticism' or 'spiritual science'.

The Program: Personal Evolution is the definitive, evidence-based guide to developing the lean, muscular physique you have always wanted. Stop wasting your precious time! One of the biggest fallacies in the world of exercise is that you have to spend hours a day in the gym, day after day, in order to build muscle and burn body fat. As a result, many people give up before they reach their fitness goals. What they don't know is that by making some simple changes in the WAY they work out they can boost their exercise productivity by over 500%. The Personal Evolution Training Program will show you how to: 1. Maximize your muscle growth with workouts lasting as short as 20 minutes 2. Boost the intensity of your workouts to double your results. 3. Blast through any training plateaus. 4. Give yourself the mental and physical edge you need. 5. Achieve single digit body fat percentages in record time. 6. Change your bodies metabolism from one that wants to store calories as fat to one that burns fat as fuel around the clock. 7. Boost your production of testosterone and growth hormone. 8. Control your blood sugar and lower insulin levels. 9. Learn how to keep junk food from sabotaging your diet while still indulging yourself. 10. Learn which supplements have real scientific merit and which are just a waste of money. 11. Improve your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. 12. Lower your risk for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

The scientific method is just over a hundred years old. From debates about the evolution of the human mind to the rise of instrumental reasoning, Henry M. Cowles shows how the idea of a single "scientific method" emerged from a turn inward by psychologists that produced powerful epistemological and historical effects that are still with us today.

This book is the first to provide a comprehensive survey of the computational models and methodologies used for studying the evolution and origin of language and communication. Comprising contributions from the most influential figures in the field, it presents and summarises the state-of-the-art in computational approaches to language evolution, and highlights new lines of development. Essential reading for researchers and students in the fields of evolutionary and adaptive systems, language evolution modelling and linguistics, it will also be of interest to researchers working on applications of neural networks to language problems. Furthermore, due to the fact that language evolution models use multi-agent methodologies, it will also be of great interest to computer scientists working on multi-agent systems, robotics and internet agents.
