This introduction to the life of the past as revealed through fossils includes br br Descriptions of the typical plants and animals of major geological eras br Maps showing where fossils can be found br The history of the development of life on earth br br Full color illustrations and concise information make this an invaluable and enjoyable guide to a fascinating subject, Is the university a dinosaur huge lumbering endearing in its own way yet unsuited to today s world Is it a thing of the past unnecessary in an age of the Internet and online learning In a book likely to provoke people who are loyal to the ideal of the university as well as those who foresee its demise Frank H T Rhodes acknowledges that the university is an imperfect institution but argues that it plays an essential role in modern society In the process he articulates strong opinions on a range of difficult issues The Creation of the Future is no defense or promotion of the status quo Focusing on American research universities Rhodes makes the case that they are an irreplaceable resource quite literally a national and international treasure whose value must be preserved through judicious renewal and reform beginning with a rededication to teaching as a moral vocation Rhodes discusses where the research university is today and how it got here as well as where it must go in the future In the process he addresses a wide range of contemporary challenges facing the institution including why universities can no longer be ivory towers why post tenure review of professors is desirable whether grading standards have become too lax why unionization of graduate students is inappropriate why affirmative action is necessary how governance and leadership can be improved how to maintain a sense of commitment to the university in the face of increasing disciplinary specialization why faculty must affirm that university membership has not only its privileges but also its price what should and should not be done to control the rapid rise in tuition whether curricula of professional schools should be more heavily weighted toward the liberal arts why service is a social obligation of all universities not just land grant institutions why research is vital to effective teaching His eighteen year tenure as president of Cornell University gives Rhodes a unique perspective on a system he finds both invaluable and in need of change Although he is an enthusiastic advocate he pulls no punches in recommending sweeping changes The greatest catastrophe facing universities today he writes is loss of community Without community knowledge becomes idiosyncratic The lone learner studying in isolation is vulnerable to narrowness dogmatism and untested assumption pursued in community learning will be expansive and informed contested by opposing interpretations leavened by differing experience and refined by alternative viewpoints In championing a new relevance for the American research university Rhodes argues for renewal through the application of old virtues to new realities Campus culture he says must embrace the human experience in all its richness breadth and ambiguity if it is to survive and thrive, Fossils are the fragments from which piece by laborious piece the great mosaic of the history of life has been constructed Here and there we can supplement these meager scraps by the use of biochemical markers or geochemical signatures that add useful information but even with such additional help our reconstructions and our models of descent are often tentative For the fossil record is as we have seen as biased as it is incomplete But fragmentary selective and biased though it is the fossil record with all its imperfections is still a treasure Though whole chapters are missing many pages lost and the earliest pages so damaged as to be as yet virtually unreadable this the greatest biography of all is one in whose closing pages we find ourselves from em Origins em br br In em Origins em Frank H T Rhodes explores the origin and evolution of living things the changing environments in which they have developed and the challenges we now face on an increasingly crowded and polluted planet Rhodes argues that the future well being of our burgeoning population depends in no small part on our understanding of life s past its long and slow development and its intricate interdependencies br br Rhodes s accessible and extensively illustrated treatment of the origins narrative describes the nature of the search for prehistoric life the significance of geologic time the origin of life the emergence and spread of flora and fauna the evolution of primates and the emergence of modern humans, No description available
