Scienza, ragione e religione: un nuovo approccio I progressi della scienza degli ultimi quattro secoli hanno preteso un prezzo elevato un divario sempre pi ampio tra fede e ragione Nella sua forma pi estrema il riduzionismo sostiene che tutta la realt dagli organismi a una coppia di innamorati a passeggio sia fatta di sole particelle le societ devono essere spiegate da leggi sulle persone che sono spiegate da leggi sugli organi sulle cellule dalla chimica e infine dalla fisica delle particelle Per Kauffman il solo riduzionismo inadeguato sia a praticare la scienza sia a comprendere la realt viviamo infatti in una biosfera e in una cultura che oltre ad essere emergenti sono radicalmente creative un universo di creativit esplosiva di cui spesso non possiamo prevedere gli sviluppi La proposta di Kauffman quindi quella di porci come co creatori di una biosfera che letteralmente costruisce se stessa e si evolve e di una cultura nuova e infinita Un Dio pienamente naturale identificato con la creativit stessa dell universo e una sua concezione che pu essere uno spazio spirituale condiviso da tutti credenti o non credenti by Stuart A. Kauffman, Silvio Ferraresi

In the hard sciences which can often feel out of grasp for many lay readers there are great thinkers who go far beyond the equations formulas and research Minds such as Stephen Hawking philosophize about the functions and nature of the universe the implications of our existence and other impossibly fascinating yet difficult questions Stuart A Kauffman is one of those great thinkers He has dedicated his lifetime to researching complex systems at prestigious institutions and now writes his treatise on the most complex system of all our universe br A recent Scientific American article claims that philosophy begins where physics ends and physics begins where philosophy ends and perhaps no better quote sums up what Kauffman s latest book offers Grounded in his rigorous training and research background Kauffman is inter disciplinary in every sense of the word sorting through the major questions and theories in biology physics and philosophy Best known for his philosophy of evolutionary biology Kauffman coined the term prestatability to call into question whether science can ever accurately and precisely predict the future development of biological features in organisms As evidenced by the title s mention of creativity the book refreshingly argues that our preoccupation to explain all things with scientific law has deadened our creative natures In this fascinating read Kauffman concludes that the development of life on earth is not entirely predictable because no theory could ever fully account for the limitless variations of evolution Sure to cause a stir this book will be discussed for years to come and may even set the tone for the next great thinker br, William Dembski Michael Ruse and other prominent philosophers provide here a comprehensive balanced overview of the debate concerning biological origins a controversial dialectic since Darwin published The Origin of Species in Invariably the source of controversy has been design Is the appearance of design in organisms as exhibited in their functional complexity the result of purely natural forces acting without prevision or teleology Or does the appearance of design signify genuine prevision and teleology and if so is that design empirically detectable and thus open to scientific inquiry Four main positions have emerged in response to these questions Darwinism self organization theistic evolution intelligent design The contributors to this volume define their respective positions in an accessible style inviting readers to draw their own conclusions Two introductory essays furnish a historical overview of the debate William A Dembski is an associate research professor in the conceptual foundations of science at Baylor University as well as a senior fellow with Seattle s Discovery Institute His most important books are The Design Inference Cambridge and No Free Lunch Rowman and Littleton Michael Ruse is Lucyle T Wekmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University He is the author of many books including Can a Darwinian Be a Christian The Relationship Between Science and Religion Cambridge, Stuart Kauffman here presents a brilliant new paradigm for evolutionary biology one that extends the basic concepts of Darwinian evolution to accommodate recent findings and perspectives from the fields of biology physics chemistry and mathematics The book drives to the heart of the exciting debate on the origins of life and maintenance of order in complex biological systems It focuses on the concept of self organization the spontaneous emergence of order widely observed throughout nature Kauffman here argues that self organization plays an important role in the emergence of life itself and may play as fundamental a role in shaping life s subsequent evolution as does the Darwinian process of natural selection Yet until now no systematic effort has been made to incorporate the concept of self organization into evolutionary theory The construction requirements which permit complex systems to adapt remain poorly understood as is the extent to which selection itself can yield systems able to adapt more successfully This book explores these themes It shows how complex systems contrary to expectations can spontaneously exhibit stunning degrees of order and how this order in turn is essential for understanding the emergence and development of life on Earth Topics include the new biotechnology of applied molecular evolution with its important implications for developing new drugs and vaccines the balance between order and chaos observed in many naturally occurring systems new insights concerning the predictive power of statistical mechanics in biology and other major issues Indeed the approaches investigated here may prove to be the new center around which biologicalscience itself will evolve The work is written for all those interested in the cutting edge of research in the life sciences, No description available
