[SR: 1554686], Paperback, [EAN: 9780520231955], University of California Press, University of California Press, Book, [PU: University of California Press], University of California Press, While the story of the big has often been told, the story of the small has not yet even been outlined. With Dust, Joseph Amato enthralls the reader with the first history of the small and the invisible. Dust is a poetic meditation on how dust has been experienced and the small has been imagined across the ages. Examining a thousand years of Western civilization—from the naturalism of medieval philosophy, to the artistry of the Renaissance, to the scientific and industrial revolutions, to the modern worlds of nanotechnology and viral diseases—Dust offers a savvy story of the genesis of the microcosm.Dust, which fills the deepest recesses of space, pervades all earthly things. Throughout the ages it has been the smallest yet the most common element of everyday life. Of all small things, dust has been the most minute particulate the eye sees and the hand touches. Indeed, until this century, dust was simply accepted as a fundamental condition of life; like darkness, it marked the boundary between the seen and the unseen.With the full advent of scientific discovery, technological innovation, and social control, dust has been partitioned, dissected, manipulated, and even invented. In place of traditional and generic dust, a highly diverse particulate has been discovered and examined. Like so much else that was once considered minute, dust has been magnified by the twentieth-century transformations of our conception of the small. These transformations—which took form in the laboratory through images of atoms, molecules, cells, and microbes—defined anew not only dust and the physical world but also the human body and mind. Amato dazzles the reader with his account of how this powerful microcosm challenges the imagination to grasp the magnitude of the small, and the infinity of the finite.Los Angeles Times Best Nonfiction Book o, 13871, History & Philosophy, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 14454, Animal Rights, 13474, Animals, 16386, Birdwatching, 290062, Conservation, 290071, Ecosystems, 290064, Endangered Species, 14459, Environment, 290061, Fauna, 290078, Field Guides, 14533, Forests & Rainforests, 14488, Lakes & Ponds, 14505, Mountains, 16311131, Natural History, 14507, Natural Resources, 171225, Nature Writing & Essays, 14519, Oceans & Seas, 13547, Plants, 764418, Reference, 13625, Rivers, 14538, Rocks & Minerals, 13456, Star Gazing, 14543, Water Supply & Land Use, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Dust: A History of the Small and the Invisible

Until recently, dust and smallness coincided in the experience and thought of Western people, as they still do for many nonindustrial and rural peoples of the world. This history of the small defines this coincidence and traces the divergence of dust and smallness in the twentieth century, when dust lost its place as a fundamental condition of human life.
