Science advanced dramatically during the 20th were new and radical developments in the physical, life and human sciences, building on the progress made in the 19th century. The development of post-Newtonian theories in physics, such as special relativity, general relativity, and quantum mechanics led to the development of nuclear weapons.

The moment is ripe to invest in the development of the new biology because the life sciences are in the midst of a historical period analogous to the early 20th century in the physical sciences.

The discovery of the electron in marked the beginning of a major turning point in the history of science. Over the next few decades, physics, chemistry, and astronomy were all transformed. It gives illustrious examples of the most striking advances within the life sciences during the 20th century.

Informative, stimulating and very useful. --Läkartidningen The book focuses on selected topics rather than providing inventories and this makes it an especially enjoyable read Cited by: This book considers urban planning and regional development practices since the 20th century and offers a conceptual discussion on current transformations.

The 20th century. What was seen in the 20th century was not only an intensification and spread of earlier tendencies in the social sciences but also the development of many new tendencies that, in the aggregate, made the 19th century seem by comparison one of quiet unity and simplicity in the social sciences.

Medicine in the 20th century. The 20th century produced such a plethora of discoveries and advances that in some ways the face of medicine changed out of all recognition. In in the United Kingdom, for instance, the life expectancy at birth, a primary indicator of the effect of health care on mortality (but also reflecting the state of health education, housing, and nutrition), was   Technology, science, inventions, and re-inventions have progressed at an accelerated rate during the hundred years of the 20th century, more so than any other century.

We began the 20th century with the infancy of airplanes, automobiles, and radio, when those inventions dazzled us with their novelty and wonder. The history of biology traces the study of the living world from ancient to modern times. Although the concept of biology as a single coherent field arose in the 19th century, the biological sciences emerged from traditions of medicine and natural history reaching back to ayurveda, ancient Egyptian medicine and the works of Aristotle and Galen in the ancient Greco-Roman world.

Chemistry in the last century was characterized by spectacular growth and advances, stimulated by revolutionary theories and experimental breakthroughs.

Yet, despite this rapid development, the history of this scientific discipline has achieved only recently the status necessary to understand the effects of chemistry on the scientific and technological culture of the modern world.
