"Science of Heat and Thermophysical Studies" provides a non-traditional bridging of historical, philosophical, societal and scientific aspects of heat with a comprehensive approach to the field of generalized thermodynamics. It involves Greek philosophical views and their impact on the development of contemporary ideas. Covered topics include: the concept of heat thermometry and calorimetry; early concepts of temperature and its gradients; non-equilibrium and quantum thermodynamics; chemical kinetics entropy; order and information thermal science applied to economy(econophysics), ecosystems, and process dynamics or mesoscopic scales (quantum diffusion); and importance of energy science and its influence to societal life.
