Entropy and Information is a science/philosophical book. The author considers the function Entropy as the tool of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, subsequently applicable to link different areas. Entropy and Information: Unveiling the Mysterious "Stuff" Permeating the Universe is both holistic and interdisciplinary. "I think it brings a new scope on how to face reality. It starts with basic concepts for a rationale on Entropy. Entropy is placed in context with Information Theory, a great milestone contributed by Shannon in 1948. Basically, Entropy gives us estimation on how elements or constituents interrelate in systems," the author says. As principles, entropy and information intimately deal with the human mind. Thus they are paramount in evolution, stupidity, memetics, societies and cultures. The final parts of the book are reflections and criticisms of so-called modern medicine, particularly for its uncouth business orientation. This book fills a gap in interdisciplinary science and is sure to be highly valued by a vast array of readers. Entropy, an old and poorly understood natural function, can be applied to many dimensional scenarios and areas of knowledge. About the Author: Paralternativecelus is an M.D. and a freelance philosopher interested in the process of knowledge and diagnosis. He is constantly challenging the status quo of medicine. For him, medicine is far from being a science, as some people may contrarily believe. Physical principles must be incorporated into health for breakthroughs to happen.
