[ Read Online Complexity: Life at the Edge of Chaos ↠´ gamebooks PDF ] by Roger Lewin Ê Lewin, Roger Complexity Life at the Edge of Chaos, 2nd Ed 1999 A fine introduction and an interesting readThe science of complexity, a discipline unique to the computer age, was born of chaos and a growing sense that there is something amenable to scientific inquiry about complex systems that we are missing Before we had the number crunching power of computers, complexity could not be explored because the many variables resulted in astronomical calculations.
In this revision of his book originally published in 1992, Roger Lewin explains what the science of complexity is all about through interviews with some of its most important practitioners and critics organized around some of the central ideas As such this is both a fine introduction to the subject and an interesting read Lewin includes 16 pages of photos of the scient In my high school psychology course there was a brief overview of the history of psychology, beginning with the German Gestalt theorists in the 19th century I couldn t tell you any of their names, nor could I cite a single book or article by any of them, but their underlying concept has stuck with me since then The whole is greater than the sum of its parts That has, in many ways, been my approach to a wide variety of aspects of life I think it applies to literary theory, philosophy, sociology, much of the hard sciences possibly everything And it seems as though the scientific community is beginning to see that this might be the case, and not simply for mystical reasons There s evidence that eating whole foods is better for you than consuming each of the separate nutrient I read this book as a followup to the excellent Complexity A Guided Tour, and I have to say it was a bit of a letdown While it does dive deeply into some of the ideas behind the field, a lot of the book s substance consists of scientists speaking off the cuff about their most grandiose visions for their work Frankly, it ends up coming off a bit kooky in than a few places where researchers are not being as circumspect as a good scientist ought to be The pace also drags than a bit in places All in all, it s an okay read for someone with an interest in the field, but if you re looking for an engaging introduction, there s better out there.
I dare not pretend that I understood Lewin s far ranging discussion of the multitudinous aspects of Complexity But I was fascinated, intrigued, and thoroughly captured by the premise.

I dare not pretend that I understood Lewin s far ranging discussion of the multitudinous aspects of Complexity But I was fascinated, intrigued, and thoroughly captured by the premise.
I had higher expectations of this book Lewin seemed interested in talking about the scientists than their ideas, or at least he used individuals as the organizing principle of this book, which made it difficult for me to end up with a solid, holistic grasp of the science of complexity That does not mean the book was without some very fascinating ideas I d never come across the Gaia Theory before, and I loved reading about artificial life Unfortunately, I ve forgotten most everything else Maybe that s my fault rather than the book s Hard to say.
I bought this at Alias books at the same time I also bought books by Richard Rorty, John Cage, Stephen Hawking and Tyler Volk It was a good introduction to complexity, written by PhD science writer It was through Lewin that I was introduced to Stuart Kauffman, The Santa Fe Institute, John von Neumann, Chris Langton, Steven Wolfram, Norman Packard, James Valentine, Brian Goodwin, Doyne Farmer, Tom Ray, James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis Gaia hypothesis , Murray Gell Mann, Stuart Pimm, Dan McShea, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Danny Hillis, Pat Churchland, Roger Penrose and E.
O Wilson There were others, but I didn t list them.
Los Cient Ficos Vienen Afirmando Desde Hace Ya Varias D Cadas Que La Ciencia Del Siglo XXI Ser La De Los Sistemas Complejos Y Es Que En La Base De Todo Sistema Complejo Desde El Comportamiento De Las Mol Culas Hasta Las Medidas Que Deben Adoptar Los Estados Para Lograr El Equilibrio Con La Naturaleza Subyace Una Serie De Reglas Que, Una Vez Identificadas, Contribuir N A Unificar Ampliamente Las Ciencias De La Vida Roger Lewin Ha Querido Reunir Aqu Las Ideas De Los Aut Nticos Pioneros De Este Descubrimiento Para Que Podamos Seguir De Cerca La Hermosa Aventura En La Que Ya Nos Hemos Embarcado Todos Irremediablemente Desde Las Colinas Que Rodean El Ca N Del Chaco En Nuevo M Xico Hasta Los P Ramos Del Condado De Devonshire, Desde La Selva De Costa Rica Hasta Los Laboratorios M S Sofisticados De Estados Unidos, Conversando Entre Muchos Otros Bi Logos, Matem Ticos, F Sicos Y Qu Micos, Con Cient Ficos Tan C Lebres Como Edward O Wilson, Entom Logo Creador De La Sociobiolog A, Stephen Jay Gould, Protagonista De La Pol Mica Sobre La Noci N Del Progreso En La Evoluci N Biol Gica, James Lovelock, Cuya Hip Tesis De Gaia Ha Conmocionado El Debate Sobre El Orden Emergente, Murray Gell Mann, F Sico Ganador Del Premio Nobel Por El Descubrimiento De Los Quarks, O Chris Langton, Estudioso De Los Sistemas Complejos Adaptativos En Las Culturas Del Sudoeste Norteamericano, Lewin No S Lo Ha Levantado Un Aut Ntico Mapa Del Recorrido Realizado Hasta Hoy Por Lo Que Pronto Se Conocer Como Teor A De La Complejidad, Sino Que Ha Trazado La Apasionante Historia De La Lenta, Pero Obstinada, Conquista De Sus Descubridores This book tells the story of the new science of complexity Roger is a decent storyteller who interviews all the subject s big wigs around the world with concentration at the Santa Fe Institute Complexity is argued as something that is as influential as Darwinian evolution Biologically, it challenges evolution s linear processes with a larger system view It is interesting and I m sure there is something to it.
Excellent introduction to the science of complexity.
I have been exploring the nature of Chaos theory for some time Perhaps the whole idea about randomness may be an illusion.
