About this book

This book reflects the existing debate between the advocates of holism, and those who argue in favour of the continuing importance of reductionism as a key to understanding nature. With contributions from Oliver Sacks, Gerald M. Edelman, John Barrow and Roger Penrose, Nature's Imagination offers a fascinating look at the kinds of arguments which are changing the face of science and leading it into the next century.
