واحدٌ من أمتع ما قرأت على الإطلاق يكاد يضاهي كتاب الكون في جماله وتفرده الطريقة التي قدم بها سيجن معلوماته لازلت قادرة على إدهاشي فالعلم عنده ليس مجرد مصطلحات جامدة ولا سطور محشوة بالمعلومات الجديدة كارل سيجن يملك دهشة الأطفال وهو قادر على انتزاع تلك الشهقات الطفلية منك مع كل كتاب جديد فلا شيء في الك...

"كتنانين عدن" "إننا نتهم الأرواح الشريرة بأنها السبب في الصرع ؛ لأننا لا نفهم له سبباً آخر, ولو أننا اتهمنا الأرواح الشريرة بكل مرض لا نعرف له سبباً لامتلأ الكون بهذه الأرواح" أبوقراط في عام 1975, قام المؤلف "كارل ساجان" بتقديم أول محاضرة لذكرى "جايكوب برونسكي" في "الفلسفات الطبيعية" في جامعة تو...

The most hauting question that this book poses is this : Chimpanzees can abstract. Like other mammals, they are capable of strong emotions.Why, exactly, all over the civilized world, in virtually every major city, are apes in prison? For a species that has proclaimed itself to be the rulers of Ea...

لو غاوى كتب الأرصفه و الأعلى مبيعا هيعجبك ككتاب خفيف و ممتع و اسلوبه شيق لكن لو بتقرأه من أجل الماده العلميه هتلاقيه سطحى و غير دقيق و يستند لأطروحات و استنتاجات نظرية لم يدعمها العلم بصوره قاطعه و لا حتى بصورة شبه مؤكدة. العنوان خادع شويتين و لو انه متوقع ان كتاب بالحجم الصغير ده صعب يناقش قضية ب...

I'd read this book a few years ago, and loved it. It's a great introduction to brain anatomy, consciousness/subconsciousness, and evolution. An "easy" read, if any book that deals with these types of topics can be considered as such. Sagan is good at presenting complex material in an interesting...

One of the most beautiful things I've ever read came from this book: "If the human brain had only one synapse-- corresponding to a monumental stupidity-- we would be capable of only two mental states. If we had two synapses, then 2^2 = 4 states; three synapses, then 2^3 = 8 states, and, in general...

"Chimpanzees can abstract. Like other mammals, they are capable of strong emotions. Why, exactly, all over the civilized world, in virtually every major city, are apes in prison?" "Humans have systematically exterminated those other primates who displayed signs of intelligence." Carl Sagan is the be...

Interesting read, as long as one takes into account that it's quite old and outdated by now, so it's not exactly cutting edge. (I read it pretty long ago myself). Still, Sagan has a such a pleasant, conversational style, that even reading it for the speculations alone, makes reading the book a not...

Interesting questions on the origin and development of human intelligence. Still worth a read despite lots of progress since he wrote this. Gives a good description of left/right brain competencies. Has piqued my interest in evolutionary development. The guy was taken from us too early but sure m...

Bugün öğlen saatlerinde büyük bir heyecanla elime aldığım kitabı an itibariyle üzülerek bitirmiş bulunuyorum. Cosmos kitabıyla tanıştığım Sagan'ın biraz daha farklı konulara değindiği bu kitabını da Cosmos ile aynı keyif ve heyecanla okudum. Sagan'ın ne kadar büyük bir deha olduğunu bir defa daha...
