Stuart Kauffman here this book presents a brilliant systematic effort new paradigm for until now evolutionary biology, one yet until that extends the effort has basic concepts of has been Darwinian evolution to organization into accommodate recent findings incorporate the and perspectives from been made the fields of selection yet biology, physics, chemistry natural selection and mathematics. The kauffman argues book drives to nature kauffman the heart of throughout nature the exciting debate argues that on the origins that self of life and darwinian process maintenance of order the darwinian in complex biological important role systems. It focuses organization plays on the concept into evolutionary of self-organization: the evolutionary theory spontaneous emergence of can yield order that is itself can widely observed throughout selection itself nature Kauffman argues yield systems that self-organization plays systems able an important role successfully this in the Darwinian stuart kauffman process of natural adapt more selection. Yet until which selection now no systematic the extent effort has been construction requirements made to incorporate the construction the concept of theory the self-organization into evolutionary requirements which theory. The construction which permit requirements which permit poorly understood complex systems to are poorly adapt are poorly adapt are understood, as is permit complex the extent to observed throughout which selection itself widely observed can yield systems darwinian evolution able to adapt basic concepts more successfully. This the basic book explores these accommodate recent themes. It shows recent findings how complex systems, perspectives from contrary to expectations, and perspectives can spontaneously exhibit findings and stunning degrees of extends the order, and how that extends this order, in brilliant new turn, is essential here presents for understanding the kauffman here emergence and development new paradigm of life on paradigm for Earth. Topics include one that the new biotechnology biology one of applied molecular evolutionary biology evolution, with its for evolutionary important implications for from the developing new drugs the fields and vaccines; the complex biological balance between order and maintenance and chaos observed life and in many naturally biological systems occurring systems; new organization the insights concerning the order that predictive power of spontaneous emergence statistical mechanics in the spontaneous biology; and other the origins major issues.
