As in the past verisons of this anthology, the essays hope to engage the reader with some of the more intriguing discussions in science and technology. . . . Coming from our stellar origins, immersed in earthly ways, we are invited to reflect on our humanity in all its aspects. Contemporary issues require a good understanding of sicence and technology, but outcomes are often determined by political, economic, social, and cultural forces. Thus, the concerns that engage our society today can be addressed only if we consider the various forces that create the stability or change in our world. - From the preface, by Ma. Assunta C.
