Galileo's idea of movement in Europe and of a number of the actual, mathematical, and ontological arguments that have been utilized in favour and opposed to it. have been Galileo's contemporaries particularly conscious of what Westfall has defined as
"the incompatibility among the calls for of mathematical mechanics and the wishes of mechanical philosophy"? To what quantity did Galileo's silence about the reason behind loose fall abate the popularity of his concept of motion?
Which equipment have been used, ahead of the discovery of the infinitesimal calculus, to envision the validity of Galileo's legislation of loose fall and of parabolic movement? and how much experiments have been invoked in favour or opposed to these
legislation? those and similar questions are addressed during this volume.

From the construction of half-living microbes within the attempt tube to charting the earliest histories of genetic engineering, Radium and the key of Life highlights formerly unknown interconnections among the historical past of the early radioactive sciences and the sciences of heredity. Equating the transmutation of radium with the organic transmutation of dwelling species, biologists observed in metabolism and mutation homes that reminded them of the recent aspect. those at first provocative metaphoric hyperlinks among radium and existence proved remarkably efficient and finally resulted in key organic insights into the beginning of lifestyles, the character of heredity, and the constitution of the gene. Radium and the key of Life recovers a forgotten heritage of the connections among radioactivity and the existence sciences that existed lengthy prior to the sunrise of molecular biology.
