Since it turned out the last book was a SCIENCE book (I didn’t realize), a PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE should be next. 3 different AIs to check/double check that it fell into “Philosophy of Science” category now, me making changes along the way. Not sure how far I go, just following reasonably, letting the data talk as it were.

The Dance of Change: Exploring Flux through Philosophy, Science, and Computation
How do we make sense of ceaseless change amidst fragments of order and continuity? This book traces an intellectual voyage across philosophy, science, and computation to shed light on change’s kaleidoscopic mysteries. Spanning philosophical traditions, scientific revolutions, and leading-edge computation, it spotlights productive tensions between perspectives. Physics, biology, and cosmology have each revolutionized understandings of change through scientific models and theories. Abstract simulations mimic complex dynamics, revealing new angles. Yet comprehension eludes reduction. Behind all models, the uncharted landscape still awaits. To navigate change with wisdom requires integrating conceptual analysis, empirical knowledge, and technological prowess. Yet the most profound insights may arise in stillness, at the quiet source where change dissolves into the changeless. There glimpses of unity transcend frameworks. This book offers no tidy answers, only trajectories for future exploration. With curiosity and compassion as guides, the open-ended journey continues.
This ambitious tome provides a panoramic conceptual tour of how great thinkers have grappled with the perennial yet evasive phenomenon of change. Spanning 2,500 years of philosophical traditions and scientific revolutions, the author insightfully weaves together diverse strands of thought and analysis. With scholarly care yet accessible prose, each major shift in perspectives is unpacked and situated in historical context. Scientific models provide a counterpoint, revealing how different disciplines conceptualize change in their domains. The rise of computation adds another wrinkle, as simulations aim to digitize dynamic processes. Yet the book reveals gaps between maps and terrains. Behind all abstraction, an irreducible mystery remains. To the author’s credit, no definitive theories are advanced, only possibilities suggested. This subtle work provokes as many new questions as answers, leaving the reader intrigued yet unsettled. Its open-ended nature echoes our unfinished quest to comprehend change itself.
What conceptual journeys reveal change’s deepest nature? This panoramic book creatively explores philosophy, science, and computation’s unfinished conversations across millennia.
