At home in the universe : the search for laws of self-organization and complexity by Stuart A Kauffman( Book )

40 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Stuart Kauffman argues that whilst natural selection is important, it is underpinned by self organization; that in crafting the living world, selection has always acted on those systems that exhibit spontaneous order
The origins of order : self-organization and selection in evolution by Stuart A Kauffman( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stuart Kauffman here presents a brilliant new paradigm for evolutionary biology, one that extends the basic concepts of Darwinian evolution to accommodate recent findings and perspectives from the fields of biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics. The book drives to the heart of the exciting debate on the origins of life and maintenance of order in complex biological systems. It focuses on the concept of self-organization: the spontaneous emergence of order that is widely observed throughout nature Kauffman argues that self-organization plays an important role in the Darwinian process of n
Reinventing the sacred : a new view of science, reason and religion by Stuart A Kauffman( Book )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and French and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Reinventing the Sacred, Kauffman argues that the science of complexity provides a way to move beyond reductionist science to something new: a unified culture where we see God in the creativity of the universe, biosphere, and humanity. Kauffman explains that the ceaseless natural creativity of the world can be a profound source of meaning, wonder, and further grounding of our place in the universe. His theory carries with it a new ethic for an emerging civilization and a reinterpretation of the divine. He asserts that we are impelled by the imperative of life itself to live with faith and courage-and the fact that we do so is indeed sublime. Reinventing the Sacred will change the way we all think about the evolution of humanity, the universe, faith, and reason. - Publisher

"A tour-de-force exploration of the very essence of life itself, with conclusions that radically undermine the scientific approaches on which modern science rests; the approches of Newton, Boltzman, Boht and Einstein."--Cover

Beyond mechanism : putting life back into biology by Brian G Henning( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pairing scientists and philosophers together, this book is an exploration of some of the new frontiers in biology (e.g., Emergence, Complex Systems, Biosemiotics, Symbiogenesis, Organic Selection, Epigenetics, Niche Construction, Teleodynamics, etc.). The chapters in this volume challenge the mechanistic metaphysic that is implicit in the reigning neo-Darwinist paradigm, point to more inclusive modes of thinking in relation to the nature of life, and contribute to the novel synthesis that is presently "in the air."

Beyond belief Enlightenment 2.0( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As you watch the conversation in Beyond Belief: Enlightenment 2.0, it might help to know about one of the sources that was helpful to me in formulating the agenda, assembling the cast of characters, and setting the tone for the meeting. I quoted this passage from Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century by Jonathan Glover (who directs the Centre of Medical Law and Ethics at King's College, London): "Now we tend to see the Enlightenment view of human psychology as thin and mechanical, and Enlightenment hopes of social progress through the spread of humanitarianism and the scientific outlook as naive ... One of this book's aims is to replace the thin, mechanical psychology of the Enlightenment with something more complex, something closer to reality ... another aim of the book is to defend the Enlightenment hope of a world that is more peaceful and humane, the hope that by understanding more about ourselves we can do something to create a world with less misery. I have qualified optimism that this hope is well founded ..." I say Amen to that. If Enlightenment 1.0 took a thin and mechanical view of human nature and psychology, I think Enlightenment 2.0 can offer a much 'thicker' and cognitively richer account - less naive and also, perhaps, less hubristic. If there's one thing we've learned - particularly from cognitive neuroscience - it is that we need to have some strategic humility about the hobby horses we are inclined to ride".--Website

A third window : natural life beyond Newton and Darwin by Robert E Ulanowicz( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thus far, the dominant paradigms through which modern scientists have viewed nature have been structured primarily around Newtonian and Darwinian approaches. As theoretical ecologist Robert E. Ulanowicz observes in his new work, A Third Window, neither of these models is sufficient for explaining how real change & mdash;in the form of creative advance or emergence & mdash;takes place in nature. The metaphysical foundations laid by these great thinkers centuries ago are ill suited to sustain today's search for a comprehensive description of complex living systems.
