About this book

Claims to develop Darwinist theories of evolution, which Goodwin explains have been insufficient thus far, and fit his new theories in with the new science of Complexity. He argues that patterns which occur again and again in the living world do not just happen, but occur because of the inherent self-organizing properties of life. Along the way he discusses the implications for the future of biology and the way in which politicians can use or abuse biological knowledge.
