Order Out Of Chaos: Man's New Dialogue With Nature
Order out of chaos: Man's new dialogue with nature
One of the most highly developed skills in contemporary Western civilization is dissection: the split up of problems into their smallest possible components. We are good at it. So good, we often forget to put the pieces back together again. The authors of Order Out of Chaos reverse this process in a brilliant work that is contentious and mind energizing, a book filled with flashing insights that subvert many of our most basic assumptions and suggest fresh ways to think about them. In effect they take the pieces, in this case being biology and physics, necessity and chance, science and humanity, and show how they can be pieced back together to form a whole more meaningful than its parts.
