A Different Thermodynamics and Its True Heroes

by Evgeni Starikov

This book presents the fascinating life of five prominent researchers who made a seminal contribution to thermodynamics but still remained unnoticed for various reasons. It is about how the enigmatic entropy notion is subject to doubt and controversy between different camps of thoughts—an interesting read for specialists as well as laymen—as it reveals how greed, authoritative power, and sheer ignorance may prevent evolution of science and philosophy.
