Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'The emergence of complex systems after the Big Bang, from a Universe that started out in a very simple state, is one of the great puzzles of science. This book provides the best single-volume insight into the nature of this puzzle, and hints at its possible resolution. It may be the answer to life, the Universe, and everything.' John Gribbin

'In physics, chemistry and biology, the topic of complexity is, in a word, complicated. This collection is invaluable as an introduction to the many intractable open questions this subject raises, such as how best to define complexity, and how, why and if it increases.' Jeremy Butterfield, University of Cambridge

Présentation de l'éditeur

There is a widespread assumption that the universe in general, and life in particular, is 'getting more complex with time'. This book brings together a wide range of experts in science, philosophy and theology and unveils their joint effort in exploring this idea. They confront essential problems behind the theory of complexity and the role of life within it: what is complexity? When does it increase, and why? Is the universe evolving towards states of ever greater complexity and diversity? If so, what is the source of this universal enrichment? This book addresses those difficult questions, and offers a unique cross-disciplinary perspective on some of the most profound issues at the heart of science and philosophy. Readers will gain insights in complexity that reach deep into key areas of physics, biology, complexity science, philosophy and religion.

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Nice summary of current state-of-the-art of multi-disciplinary complexity science and entropy, but unfortunately I didn't find anything new to add further insight beyond what has already been written over the past 20 years on the subject. I found the numerous chapters delving into serious mathematics of entropy and complexity to be somewhat contrived and very abstract at best. The book reads like Stuart Kauffman plus physicists describe complexity with mathematics. Kauffman tends to be rather heavy with mathematical concepts (for a biologist), and the physicists only up the ante. I found Melanie Mitchell's "Complexity: A Guided Tour" a more enjoyable contemporary treatment of the same subject matter with more new modern insight and less abstract math.

I enjoyed some of the authors of what really is a compilation of articles about complexity and ultimately its relationship to life. I would have been more interested in reading about complexity and time. Unfortunately, that wasn't really the point of the manuscript. I didn't finish this book - and probably won't

Variety of views on Complexity - New Ideas and concepts 25 décembre 2014
Par Luke Out - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book also does an excellent job of giving a wide range of views of the current field of complexity from people from the disciplines of physics, biology and philosophy. Of course there were some views that I thought were better than others, but that is the point of variety. And I found several of the chapters (writers) to be the most insightful writing on complexity I have ever read.
I have read A LOT of books on complexity over the years. After awhile, you start seeing the same thing over and over. Everything I read in here seemed new and built upon what I had read rather than restating it in a different way.
The other great part of a book like this is that it allows you to pursue the areas of thought by finding more books/papers from the authors and their sources.
I also found the book to be enjoyably challenging and not overly technical. It is written in a way that I think a reasonably intelligent curious person can understand. (I am a software engineer who likes to read books on science)
Some "science" books written for popular consumption seem condescending. I didn't get that feeling at all from any of the authors.
Stimulates Thinking about Complexity in Nature 24 mai 2015
Par Joe R. Mcauley - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have several interests that seem tied together -- complexity, emergent properties (the whole being greater than the sum of the parts, as with the human brain and ant colonies) and the arrow of time, which I think is an emergent property of matter when sufficiently organized. This is not all easy reading, as it is edited lectures and such; but it is informative. No one yet has a complete handle on how nature creates greater complexity; but it's worth reading about current thinking on the matter.

Not easy 23 février 2014
Par lloyd - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a series of essay of the topic of complexity. I am no expert but to me this is an interesting philosophical topic. I found the essays variously penetrating, or impenetrable. I strongly recommend Stuart Kauffman's thoughts on re-enchanting the world. The study of complexity is a vary incomplete science, maybe so incomplete it ought not be called science. Non-the-less it dances on the edge new and magical understanding of what our world is.
