We will be exhibiting at the Derby Book Fair in St Peter’s Church Hall on 9th June during the 2018 Derby Book Festival. There will be four new volumes on sale written since the Fair last year. They are
(1) The third edition of ‘Henry Cavendish – the Man who ‘weighed’ the Earth‘, with a new extensive Appendix on Measurement in Physics, the importance of ‘Universal Constants’, and over two centuries of efforts to improve on Cavendish’s implied result for the Gravitational Constant ;
(2)’Nature, Power, and Liberty – Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury and Derbyshire’, placing his natural and political philosophy in its historical context;
(3) ‘The Many Blazing Worlds of Margaret Cavendish – a Seventeenth Century Woman’s struggle to be taken seriously as a ‘Philosopher’;
(4) ‘ΑΤΟΜΟΣ – Inventing the Ultimate Constituents of ‘Matter’‘ – this began as an Appendix to the Margaret Cavendish book but quickly took on a life of its own.
