CHOICE Review

Comprising essays by 44 scholars in the humanities, this interdisciplinary compendium on literature and science is organized in three sections. The first focuses on 20 scientific disciplines, from alchemy to such recent fields as cybernetics and nanotechnology. The second considers 14 disciplinary and theoretical approaches on which the study of literature and science draws--e.g., cultural science, history of science, philosophy of science. The last focuses on ten periods and cultures, including Greece and Rome, the scientific revolution, and modernism and postmodernism. With no requirement except length, the essays range in tone from personal (for example, Ira Livingston's illuminating essay on chaos and complexity theory) to scholarly (Philipp Schweighauser's essay on information theory, to name just one). All include a bibliography, and these, too, vary in comprehensiveness: references for chemistry and genetics, for example, are copious; those for modernism seem skimpy. Because the writing throughout is accessible to nonspecialists in both literature and science, the volume fulfills the editors' aim of offering a much-needed, comprehensive grounding in the field. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above. L. Simon Skidmore College
