Item description for How the Rocks Began to Speak by Len Alberstadt...

THERE CAN BE LITTLE DOUBT that we live in a time when science looms large in our lives. The last two centuries could be thought of as the "age of science," and the reasons that brought about that age are many and complex. The history of the development of this science has been studied and written about by many people and they have done so for different reasons and with different points of view. As for this book, the author's purposes are several, but all are related. The first is to give the reader a brief overview of some of the main events that brought about this age of science; the second is to give the reader a sense of how science, and scientists work, and, the third, but somewhat more restricted, yet, nonetheless, related, is to give the reader some insights into the main events in the history of the science of geology and describe some of the important ramifications of the truths that geologists, as scientists, have contributed to the body of scientific knowledge. It is important to recognize that geology is a science that concerns itself with things that are somewhat more historical than much of physics, chemistry, and biology. At its heart geology is a historical science, and many, if not all, of its concerns involve the element of time and sequences of events. For this reason the early development of geology required a slightly different approach from that required by the other science disciplines. But make no mistake, the fundamental methodology used by geologists is the same as that used by any scientist working in any scientific discipline. That methodology came about largely in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and is still the methodology in use today, by all scientists. The ultimate goal here is to provide the reader with a broad framework for understanding the history of that method and its role in geology and in science in general.
