Sabine Ladstätter - Bones, Stones and Shards

Adventure Archeology

When shards tell history.

Economic crisis, migration, environmental problems and creating tolerance for diversity are some of the main issues of today’s world. Earlier societies dealt with these kinds of problems as well. In the end, every era finds its own answers. Sabine Ladstätter takes us on a tour into the past, to archeological sites and to the stories of their discovery – searching for the answers that people from other eras found for questions we still ask today. This book cleverly proves that archeology is more than bones, stones and shards. It’s a science that can deliver answers about the past that help us gain socially relevant insights for today. Archeology is adventure!

Ursel Nendzig Renée Schroeder - The hen and the egg

Searching for the origins of life

What is a human? Every person would like to know what or who he or she is. In her fascinating search for the molecule of life the biochemist Renée Schroeder has made groundbreaking discoveries. In her search for answers she does not hesitate to question the possibilities of genetics and in the dispute between belief and science clearly positions herself in favor of a society based on knowledge. In all this, she is never afraid addressing on taboos. The question of the origin of life leads Schroeder far beyond the boundaries of her own scientific field and towards fundamental issues of being. Where do we come from, where are we going? How does evolution work and what role does chance play? Renée Schroeder’s undogmatic approach to the boundaries of our perception opens the door to a new way of thinking and new perspectives. In this book the passionate scientist explains what applied bioethics is and what the hen-egg question means for our future, all while guiding us through the wonderful world of molecules.
