Steve and his friend Max use their time machine to return to the richest, roughest boom town in the old Wild West where they pursue Gentleman John Hooten, the Rhyming Robber of the Rockies.
De mens is een uniek verschijnsel in de evolutie, begiftigd met een zelfreflecterend bewustzijn waarmee veel goeds is opgebouwd in de menselijke samenleving.
Maar er zijn ook ontwikkelingen in gang gezet die de samenhang in het evolutieproces ernstig verstoren. Allerd Stikker heeft zich jarenlang verdiept in de wetenschappelijke en filosofische literatuur over de aard van de magistrale samenhang in het evolutieproces, en in de rol die de mens daar nu in speelt. Met En de mens speelt met de tijd geeft hij een indringende analyse van de verrassende mysteriën, universele wetmatigheden en ingrijpende discontinuïteiten in dit proces. Hij komt tot duidelijke conclusies over waarom door toedoen van de mensheid de samenhang in het evolutieproces nu is zoekgeraakt, en tot concrete aanbevelingen hoe de individuele mens zich bewust kan worden van de kritieke fase waarin wij nu terecht zijn gekomen, en hoe die binnen de komende 25 jaar wellicht nog in goede banen geleid kan worden.

This brief, beautifully illustrated text - one of the briefest available for the course - offers concise coverage of a wide range of astronomical topics. The authors have struck a balance between the fundamental concepts and the exciting topics at the forefront of astronomy, conveying the spirit of contemporary astronomy within a big picture context. The authors emphasize the central theme of origins in this text, first by singling out specifics in the headings of each chapter and then by dealing with a variety of relevant material in the text itself. An early discussion of the scientific method stresses an importance on the verification of observations, and sets the stage for the text's consistent focus on astronomy as a science.
