Descripción Doubleday, 2012. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Why do riverbeds, blood vessels, and lightning bolts all look alike? It's not a coincidence. This extraordinary book proposes a law of nature whose power is matched only by its simplicity. Everything you lay your eyes on will blow your mind with fresh interpretation." David Eagleman, The New York Times bestselling author of Incognito and Sum, and Director of the Laboratory for Perception and Action at the Baylor College of Medicine "After reading this deeply inspiring and liberating book, you will never look at the worldthe whole worldthe same again. It not only helps us to better understand the natural environment, but it has profound implications for how we all need to act if we want to sustain success. This perspective is not just for scientistsit helps to reframe agendas for entrepreneurs, business executives, educators, and policy makers. Go with the flow!" John Hagel, co-author of The Power of Pull, and Co-Chairman of the Deloitte Center for the Edge "Bejan masterfully unifiesunder a deep common lawphysics, chemistry, biology, and even part of the social sciences. His treatment of natural design, flow systems, and complex order as spontaneously arising from flow optimization is novel, powerful, and highly plausible." Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini, author of What Darwin Got Wrong, and Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of Arizona "The most amazing thing about life is that it exists at all. The second most amazing thing about life is that living things seem to be so very good at it. In his bold new book Bejan asks why, and his answer cuts to the very core of what life isorganized flows of heat, electricity, matter, and energy. From this deceptively simple idea, Bejan takes us on an incredible expedition through life's vast scope, from tiniest cell to organism to societies to ecosystems to the entire planet. It is a bracing journey." J. Scott Turner, author of The Tinkerer's Accomplice, and Professor of Biology at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse "With wide-ranging examples and the iconic pictures to go with them, Bejan illustrates that nature is inherently an outstanding designer of flow configurations, which raises philosophic issues beyond the remit of thermodynamics. Is the distinction between animate and inanimate blurred by their common constructal design? These and many more issues are raised by Bejan's distinguished and original work, fittingly presented in Design in Nature ." Jeffrey Lewins, Deputy Praelector at Magdalene College at Cambridge University "A most stimulating thought principle, framed in a nice and lively personal story. What I really find most exciting is the exceptionally broad perspective that Bejan adopts for developing his concepts. Design in Nature is a fascinating read." Ewald Weibel, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy at the University of Berne "Thought provoking! Thermodynamics may determine where you're going; here's a rule that tells how you get there. And so simplethe more efficient the pathway, the more likely is its persistence, whatever the mechanism behind that persistence. This is science at its biggest and boldest." Steven Vogel, author of Cats' Paws and Catapults, and James B. Duke Professor of Biology at Duke University. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0385534612

Descripción Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 234 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this groundbreaking book, Adrian Bejan takes the recurring patterns in nature--trees, tributaries, air passages, neural networks, and lightning bolts--and reveals how a single principle of physics, the Constructal Law, accounts for the evolution of these and all other designs in our world. Everything--from biological life to inanimate systems--generates shape and structure and evolves in a sequence of ever-improving designs in order to facilitate flow. River basins, cardiovascular systems, and bolts of lightning are very efficient flow systems to move a current--of water, blood, or electricity. Likewise, the more complex architecture of animals evolve to cover greater distance per unit of useful energy, or increase their flow across the land. Such designs also appear in human organizations, like the hierarchical flowcharts or reporting structures in corporations and political bodies. All are governed by the same principle, known as the Constructal Law, and configure and reconfigure themselves over time to flow more efficiently. Written in an easy style that achieves clarity without sacrificing complexity, Design in Nature is a paradigm-shifting book that will fundamentally transform our understanding of the world around us.
