This publication analyzes scientificproblems in the heritage of physics, engineering, chemistry, astronomy and medication, correlated with technological purposes within the social context. whilst and the way is rigidity among disciplines explicitly practised? what's the conceptual bridge among technological know-how researches and the association of technological researches within the improvement of commercial applications?

The authors clarify a variety of ways that the sciences allowed complicated modelling at the one hand, and the advance of recent technological rules nevertheless. An emphasis at the function performed by way of mechanisms, creation equipment and tools bestows a gain on old and medical discourse: theories, associations, universities, colleges for engineers, social implications as well.

Scholars from diverse traditions speak about the emergency type of pondering in method and, in theoretical standpoint, target to assemble and reconsider the present considering in this topic. It brings jointly contributions from best specialists within the box, and provides much-needed perception into the topic from a old standpoint. the quantity composition makes for soaking up interpreting for historians, philosophers and scientists.

It The study of science and its history has long been central to the shared scholarly efforts of both the Eastern and Western Worlds. Most theoretical and practical results depended mainly on their individual scientific and disciplinary ambitions and their unique technological innovations. For example, scientific traditions were established and individual contributions made by such scholars as Nicolaus Copernicus (1473–1543), Galileo Galilei (1564–1642), Johannes Kepler (1571–1630) and René Descartes (1596–1650), resulting in a thoroughly scientific framework within which to interpret celestial and terrestrial phenomena.

The authors underline that Tesla developed the project of one of these fountains to the point that he supplied four different versions. To write this paper, the authors explored original archival documents to clarify how research can proceed in a field that is not as famous as others to which Tesla contributed. Emanuele Zamperini (Italy) faces a particular aspect of technique in which—as in many other cases—an empirical approach was progressively replaced by a structural analysis: the design of timber trusses in Italy.
