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) * importance of energy science and its influence to societal life
