Archivists unearth rare first edition of the 1815 'Map that Changed the World'

Archivists unearth rare first edition of the 1815 'Map that Changed the World' | Philosophy history and psychology | Scoop.it
A rare early copy of William Smith's 1815 Geological Map of England and Wales, previously thought lost, has been uncovered by Geological Society archivists. The new map has been digitised and made available online in time for the start of celebrations of the map's 200th anniversary, beginning with an unveiling of a plaque at Smith's former residence by Sir David Attenborough.

The map, the first geological map of a nation ever produced, shows the geological strata of England, Wales and part of Scotland. The newly discovered copy is thought to have been one of the first ten produced by William Smith (1769-1839), who went on to produce an estimated 370 hand-coloured copies of the map in his lifetime.

Depression, the secret we share

Depression, the secret we share | Philosophy history and psychology | Scoop.it
"The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment." In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression. That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression -- only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories.
