Product description


'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, University of Sussex

'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

'… fascinating lines of thought …' Daniel McShea, Science

'This work is essential reading for researchers in almost every philosophy- or theory-based field. It exposes the universe as a 'quantum computer' from which meaning can be found only through intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary thinking … Highly recommended.' J. A. van Reenen, Choice

Book Description

Experts from science, philosophy and theology jointly address the widespread assumption that the universe is 'getting more complex with time'. This unique cross-disciplinary work offers insights in complexity that reach deep into key areas of physics, biology, complexity science, philosophy and religion. A must-read for anyone interested in complexity theory.
