About this book

What is the physics of life and why does it matter? The essays in this book probe this question, celebrating modern biology's vibrant dialogue with theoretical physics - a scientific adventure in which biological understanding is enriched by physical theory without losing its own inherent traditions and perspectives. The book explores organic complexity and self-organisation through research applications to embryology, cell biology, behavioral neuroscience, and evolution.
