Book Description:

April 1984 Bantam Books trade paperback, Ilya Prigogine (The End of Certainty), Isabelle Stengers (Democracy that did to the tip before science and technology - power and science). One of the most highly developed skills in contemporary Western civilization is dissection: the split up of problems into their smallest possible components. We are good at it. So good, we often forget to put the pieces back together again. The authors of Order Out of Chaos reverse this process in a brilliant work that is contentious and mind energizing, a book filled with flashing insights that subvert many of our most basic assumptions and suggest fresh ways to think about them. In effect, they take the pieces, in this case being biology and physics, necessity and chance, science, and humanity, and show how they can be pieced back together to form a whole more meaningful than its parts. - Amazon
