Summary

Geochemistry is that branch of science which uses the 
fundamental principles of Chemistry to understand, analyze and 
explain the mechanisms behind and working principles of major 
geological systems including the oceans as well as Earth's crust. 
But the scope of Geochemistry extends much beyond our 
planet earth and extends upto the solar system so much so 
that its contribution is immense in understanding important 
phenomena like formation of planets, origins of granite and 
basalt and mantle convection. 
The fascinating factor of Geochemistry is its position which is 
primarily in between exact sciences such as physics, chemistry 
and mathematics and that of natural sciences. The shape of 
the quantitative approach taken in physical chemistry, 
thermodynamics, analytical chemistry and mathematics to natural 
observation opens up uncharted territories and provides 
enormous advantages. These are neutralized, however, by the 
inevitable shortcomings that have to be faced when writing a 
script on geochemistry: and the most important of them is the 
need to summarize and apply quite often in a superficial and 
incomplete fashion, concepts that would require an entire 
volume if they were to be described with sufficient completeness 
and accuracy; 
Multiple diverse fields or areas provided base knowledge in 
development of contemporary ideas of Geochemistry. Following 
are some of these sub fields and things they deal with in 
particular: 
Cosmo Chemistry:- This deals with the detailed analysis of 
the distribution of elements and their various isotopes within 
the cosmos. 
Isotope Geochemistry: Involves a study of absolute and 
relative concentrations of elements and their isotopes in and 
on the surface of our planet earth 
The determination of the underlying system of movement 
and distribution of earth by thorough examination of 
distribution and movements of elements in the various parts 
of earth like that of crust, mantle, hydrosphere or in 
minerals. 
Organic Geochemistry is that field of Geochemistry that 
intends to understand the role of all the process and 
compounds that are received from life or living organisms 
that once lived. 
Biogeochemistry is the field of Geochemistry which primarily 
deals with the effect of life on the chemistry of our planet 
earth. 
Photo Geochemistry deals with the impact of light induced 
reactions that occur or may occur among the components 
available naturally on the surface of earth. 
Aqueous geochemistry studies the role of various elements in 
the watersheds including mercury, sulfur or even copper. 
This also studies the exchange of fluxes through aquatic, 
terrestrial and atmospheric interactions. 
Exploration geochemistry deals with the applications to 
environmental, mineral and hydrological exploration studies. 
  
Thus, it is seen that the scope and reach of Geochemistry 
extends much beyond the limits of our planet earth and is a 
necessary tool to understand our position in this universe and 
to formulate ways along with other disciplines of science in 
sustaining life for a long time to come.

    Jung’s lectures on the history of psychology—in English for the first time 
    Between 1933 and 1941, C. G. Jung delivered a series of public lectures at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. Intended for a general audience, these lectures addressed a broad range of topics, from dream analysis to yoga and meditation. Here for the first time in English are Jung’s lectures on the history of modern psychology from the Enlightenment to his own time, delivered in the fall and winter of 1933–34. 
    In these inaugural lectures, Jung emphasizes the development of concepts of the unconscious and offers a comparative study of movements in French, German, British, and American thought. He also gives detailed analyses of Justinus Kerner’s The Seeress of Prevorst and Théodore Flournoy’s From India to the Planet Mars. These lectures present the history of psychology from the perspective of one of the field’s most legendary figures. They provide a unique opportunity to encounter Jung speaking for specialists and nonspecialists alike and are the primary source for understanding his late work. 
    Featuring cross-references to the Jung canon and explanations of concepts and terminology, History of Modern Psychology painstakingly reconstructs and translates these lectures from manuscripts, summaries, and recently recovered shorthand notes of attendees. It is the first volume of a series that will make the ETH lectures available in their entirety to English readers.

    Our Only World - Ten Essays

    "Stern but compassionate, author Wendell Berry raises broader issues that environmentalists rarely focus on . . . In one sense Berry is the voice of a rural agrarian tradition that stretches from rural Kentucky back to the origins of human civilization. But his insights are universal because Our Only World is filled with beautiful, compassionate writing and careful, profound thinking."
    —Associated Press
     
    The planet's environmental problems respect no national boundaries. From soil erosion and population displacement to climate change and failed energy policies, American governing classes are paid by corporations to pretend that debate is the only democratic necessity and that solutions are capable of withstanding endless delay. Late Capitalism goes about its business of finishing off the planet. And we citizens are left with a shell of what was once proudly described as The American Dream.
     
    In this collection of eleven essays, Berry confronts head-on the necessity of clear thinking and direct action. Never one to ignore the present challenge, he understands that only clearly stated questions support the understanding their answers require. For more than fifty years we've had no better spokesman and no more eloquent advocate for the planet, for our families, and for the future of our children and ourselves.
