Editorial Reviews

Review

"Emergence is a topic that is multi-faceted and controversial, both in science and philosophy. To help one get to grips with the various issues, this selection of some of the most important articles written in the last few decades is invaluable: not least through the editors' introductions to the book's different parts, and their annotated bibliography."--Jeremy Butterfield, Senior Research Fellow, Trinity College, University of Cambridge



"This is a very good and useful book -- as more and more scientists push toward the meanings of life and of mind they will appreciate the articles presented here, and the introductory material that helps put them into context."--Charles Taylor, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, UCLA

(Charles Taylor)

" Emergence is paradoxically the most important, yet least understood notion in the sciences of complexity. This book is an excellent collection of the best recent philosophical and scientific thinking on this tantalizing and elusive topic. A must-read for anyone interested in how modern science canand mustgo beyond reductionism."Melanie Mitchell , Department of Computer Science, Portland State University
