Book Description

What is reality? Which forces build our world?

A leading scientist tried to answer these fundamental questions with his experiments, experiments resulting in stunningly beautiful and fascinating images.

These experiments raise highly actual questions about how we perform science and how we achieve scientific truth. Can esthetics and ideas of the mind, such as mathematics, contribute to scientific truth, or should we only trust pure observations?
Is our reception of reality caused by a measurable nature around us, or is reality due to our own mental activity?

The search for an answer to these questions lead to the discovery of what we call Self-organization of nature. This book follows the path of this discovery from the world of ancient Greek philosophers, over philosophers of the idealistic age, to contemporary science. The fundamental contribution of Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge to this discovery is discussed.

Although he is mostly forgotten today, Runge counts as one of the important pioneers of medical and industrial chemistry of the first part of the nineteenth century. Runge made several important discoveries including Atropine, Caffeine, and a precursor to paper chromatography. Runges work on Self-organization of nature is, in the present book, for the first time translated into English. This will hopefully contribute to the rediscovery of an outstanding scientist, and make Runge known to a wider audience.

This beautiful edition, specially made for Kindle, contains 35 highly esthetical and stunning images from the original experiments of Runge. Moreover, this ebook has an introductory text to the philosophical concepts underlying Runges experiments and eight graphics helping to understand these concepts. In addition, hyperlinks will help the reader discover more related material and many other highly interesting books freely available online.
