Living Books


A series of 21 ‘living books’ has been launched online as part of a pioneering initiative designed to provide a bridge between the humanities and the sciences. The Living Books About Life series is written and produced by humanities scholars from universities across the world – from the UK and America to Poland and Australia – and has re-packaged and re-presented science-related research material to make it more accessible to a humanities audience. The books address a number of scientific topics whose unifying theme is life, such as air, agriculture, bioethics, cosmetic surgery, energy, neurology and human cloning.
