The contours of this paradigm emerge from the synthesis of a number of important, recently developed concepts, and provide a scientific foundation to a new world-view which emphasizes process over structure, nonequilibrium over unniverse, evolution over permanency, and individual creativity over collective stabilization.

Lists with This Book. Dec 19, Scott rated it it was amazing. I’ve only just finished the introduction, and already I’m aware that this book was a couple of decades ahead of its time. Jantsch in already recognized that it was epigenetics, not genetics alone, that makes the difference for organisms.

We rightly celebrated the triumph of the Human Genome Mapping organjzing, but quickly realized that few of the hoped-for breakthroughs would result from simply knowing the entire genome.

Genes alone don’t determine outcome.

Rather it is epigen I’ve only just finished the introduction, and already I’m eriich that this book was a couple of decades ahead of its time. Rather it is epigenetics, the interaction of the genetic code and the environmental circumstances of the individual organism.

Popular science journalism recognized this with the Time’s cover story on Epigenetics in Jan. Each organizihg, genetic development is being “processed” in a dense web of horizontal processes. This leads to a futher enrichment of genetic evolution by epigenetic dimensions.

Finally, epigenetic development overtakes genetic development in importance as well eridh in speed. I guess people couldn’t understand Jantsch. So it’s a dense book, certainly, but is quite breathtaking in its scope. It seems, too, that “The Self-Organizing Universe” was also an early pre-cursor of the “Big History” movement which seeks to take a “Big” look at world history, starting from the Big Bang, moving through evolution, and on to nantsch global perspective on the emergence of civilizations.

Roganizing wait to keep plowing into this book. May sel, Blaine rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is one of the most profound books I’ve ever read. It’s a sweeping scientific view of evolution chalk full of fascinating insights based on an application of non-equilibrium thermodynamic research in the dynamic self-organization of physical, chemical, biological, and social systems.

Referencing Nobel Prize winning chemist Ilya Prigogine and his work in dissipative structures, order through fluctuation, and process structures, Jantsch walks through the evolution of evolution, the unfolding of the various stages of symmetry breaks in the evolution of complexity in the universe.

This is no easy read but the view it presents is delf that continues to unfold in the continuing research in complex systems theory, nonlinear dynamics, self-adaptive systems, and a host of related inquiries including the embodied systems approach in cognitive science.

My favorite example, the gist of organjzing book is literally about describing dissipative self-organizing structures as the foundation of life and the further evolution of complexity Dec 30, G.
