No description available, In Chemistry Imagined Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann in a unique collaboration with artist Vivian Torrence reveals the creative and humanistic sparks that drive science in general and chemistry in particular A series of thirty field color painted collages paired with short essays personal commentary and poems evokes the magic of this usually inaccessible field its historical roots the richness of modern chemical activities and the mysterious confluences of science and art Showing the general reader how science permeates daily life Hoffmann stresses the social cultural literary and psychological contexts of chemistry With delicate surreal images Torrence explores the highly visual nature and the intellectual essence of chemistry the way chemists think and the way they formulate their questions Chemistry Imagined discusses chemical discoveries processes and personalities in an unusually humanistic manner Perusing the contents a reader finds the first drafts of the periodic table of elements likened to revisions of a William Blake poem the chemical reasons behind the success of Chinese folk medicine a poem about scanning tunneling microscopy similarities between molecules and musical instruments and a meditation on why it is that scientists supposediy discover but artists create The general public along with scientists and artists will find that this celebration of how molecular science fits into world culture is surprising compelling and poignantly beautiful Torrence s provocative images and Hoffmann s perceptions of modern and ancient chemistry shape an illuminating collage of a central science, Like most gentiles in Nazi occupied Paris architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn t really believe in Ultimately he can t resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces behind a painting within a column or inside a drainpipe detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal he can no longer deny reality br br Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save br, Coelho s special talent seems to be his ability to speak to everyone at once The kind of spirituality he espouses is to all comers His readers often say that they see their own lives in his own books br em New Yorker em br br From the bestselling author of em The Alchemist em Paulo Coelho comes an absorbing new novel that holds a mirror up to our culture s obsession with fame glamour and celebrity
