World Literature Online
From the dynamics of social networks to market bubbles, science has a lot to say about the world of technology. One of the great discoveries of modern science was the realization of how interconnected the world is. The deterministic, Newtonian view of a clockwork Universe was replaced by the much more dynamic, uncertain and entangled world of Quantum Mechanics. The new world is the one where Godel forever cut hopes for completeness in mathematics and Turing showed that computation, like the future, is fundamentally unpredictable. Despite these unexpected setbacks, modern science is wonderful, powerful and thought provoking - and relevant to technologists. The recently discovered science of complex systems is about common patterns that span diverse disciplines from physics to biology, from ecology to economics. 5 Great Science Books to Expand Your Mind - ReadWriteWeb
