Solar-Energy-Absorbing Sub...

This book explores various topics relevant to understanding the complexities of biological effects generated by solar radiation. Solar-energy-absorbing substances are evaluated, including sunscreen agents, and their influence on cancers and diseases. One assumption is the use of sunscreen agents cannot prevent the photoinitiation o...

The Future of Post-Human C...

Is chemistry really so valuable that, as Theodore L. Brown (2011) and his colleagues continue to claim in the twelfth edition of their work in 2011, chemistry is “the central science” in connecting the physical sciences with the life and applied sciences? (WK 2011 & 2011; C. Reinhardt 2001)This crowning of chemistry, however, can b...

The Future of Post-Human U...

Why should urban planning in our time be obsessed with the issue of sustainability? Or differently put, is sustainability really as desirable and possible as its proponents in urban planning (and other related fields like economics, political science, environmental studies, architecture, and so on) would like us to believe? Contrar...

The Philosophy of Chemistr...

This volume connects chemistry and philosophy in order to face questions raised by chemistry in our present world. The idea is first to develop a kind of philosophy of chemistry which is deeply rooted in the exploration of chemical activities. We thus work in close contact with chemists (technicians, engineers, researchers, and tea...
