Elements of Chance

Poems by Arthur J. Stewart
"Science is like a fine Swiss cheese," he says. From a quirky, down-to-earth, hard-work beginning to a serene, humble end, in Elements of Chance scientist-poet Art Stewart explores the principle of cause and effect, a cornerstone of science. He offers facts-but not just the facts. Come along! Arthur Stewart's poetry is a pleasure walk through the garden that empowers us-balance, synchronicity, organization, animals, paintings, technology, books, and the very special, the Monet. Arthur Stewart was born in Michigan City, Indiana, and lived initially in what is now the Indiana Dunes National Park. He spent time in Arizona, where he studied biology and chemistry at Northern Arizona University. After two years in the Peace Corps, he then earned his PhD in aquatic ecology at Michigan State University. His postdoctoral research was done at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), where his research focused on the toxicity of coal oil and shale oil. Then he taught and did stream ecology studies at the University of Oklahoma before returning to ORNL, where he worked as an ecotoxicologist, group leader and senior scientist for seventeen years. To pursue his developing interests in improving science education, Art earned a MS Ed at the University of Tennessee - Knoxville, and became a project manager for Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). Within ORAU, he manages various science education and workforce development programs. He lives in Lenoir City, not far from the hubbub of Knoxville, Tennessee and writes whenever possible.

From Where We Came

by Arthur J. Stewart
"Stewart's work is an important and intel­ligent contribution to bridging the ever-widening gap between the language of science and that used by everyday people when they explore their own origins... a must-read for those wishing to understand the origins of humankind from another, very human perspective. In From Where We Came, Stewart articulates in a novel and often surprisingly beautiful way what is often difficult for scientific writing, and in fact for scientists themselves, to communicate to the public-the wonder of the search for our origins and the visceral thrill that we as scientists receive as each discovery sheds another ray of light on humankinds origins..." ~ Prof. Lee R. Berger FRSSAf ASSAf "The many anastomosing threads of history form the backbone of Stewart's fifth volume of science-steeped poetry. Reaching deep into compelling examples from human history, and the history of our natural world, Stewart delivers carefully crafted meditations that seamlessly braid fact, loss, longing, and imagination. As Stewart notes, the reach of modern science is indeed vast, but it is certainly not devoid of wonder.

Arthur Stewart was born in Michigan City, Indiana, living in what is now the Indiana Dunes National Park. He also spent time in Arizona, studying biology and chemistry at Northern Arizona University. Later, after a stint in the Peace Corps, he earned his PhD in aquatic ecology at Michigan State University. He did postdoctoral research on the toxicity of coal oil and shale oil at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), then taught and learned about stream ecology at the University of Oklahoma, then went back to ORNL as an ecotoxicologist, group leader and senior scientist. To pursue his interests in improving science education, Art earned a MS Ed at the University of Tennessee - Knoxville. As a project manager for Oak Ridge Associated Universities, he has worked with several multifaceted science education projects, including the Tennessee Science Bowl, the Appalachian Regional Commission - ORNL Math-Science-Technology Summer Institute, and the Department of Energy's ORNL Academies Creating Teacher Scientists program. He now manages the Advanced Short-Term Research Opportunity program for Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Postdoctoral Program for the Department of Energy's Savannah River National Laboratory. He lives in Lenoir City, not far from the hubbub of Knoxville. Reaching deep into compelling examples from human history, and the history of our natural world, Stewart delivers carefully crafted meditations that seamlessly braid fact, loss, longing, and imagination. This second collection of essays and poems by Arthur Stewart has a single theme - respect and care for life. Art Stewart's elegant verses transcend that divide. - Professor Rick Shine, School of Biological Sciences, University of Sydney, Australia.
