Book Intro

A heartily and beautiful science book

Warm regards to disappearing things from disappearing things

When it comes to all living things, whatever species, another name of life is death, and the end and beginning of evolution is extinction. Disappearing lives also are interconnected and form a huge ecosystem. The death of one species is sometimes the seed of a new one, and a single life is a universe unto itself. Yoon Shin Young, a science journalist who writes literary science articles with a warm and emotional perspective, has written a book-length essay on things that are disappearing. Written in the form of a letter, the voices in this book is addressed to “you.” 

A science essay that stimulates your intellectual curiosity across literature, biology and philosophy. 

This book starts with biology but it soon adopts various disciplinary perspective, such as literature, philosophy, ecology and Chinese Confucianism. If someone discusses scientific knowledge without considering neighboring disciplines, it would only show half the picture. This is because science, like all other fields, does not exist alone without any socio-cultural context. As such, this book is not simple, but it is not difficult to understand. It is straightforward and clear. 

Our earth and the world of animals are comprised of myriad of "links." 

Considering the number of large mammals on earth, the population of humans is overwhelming. There has never been such a large proportion of topmost predators on the Earth. What does this mean and what will the fate of mankind be in the future? Find the answers in letters from extinct bats, extinct bees, extinct bees, even extinct Korean tigers, and in the messages to the human race from Neanderthals who once lived with our human ancestors.
