Modern Science and the Capriciousness of Nature by Karl Rogers Modern Science and the Capriciousness of Nature, Hardback (October 2006)

Natural disasters remind us of the capricious power of Nature. This book questions the way that modern science and technology are represented as the means to liberate human beings from the arbitrary natural imposition of forces beyond our control. It questions the rationality of this societal gamble and its implications for our lives.
