To the Editor:

I would like to apologize for an error in a recent book review (Fall 2010 JP), and correct the error here. In my review of The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion: How Feelings Link the Brain, the Body, and the Sixth Sense by Michael A. Jawer with Marc S. Micozzi (Park Street Press, 2009), I made the following erroneous statement when describing the second law of thermodynamics: "... entropy (often conceived of as disorder) decreases over time in a closed system." Of course, the correct statement would be "... entropy does not decrease over time in a closed system." Unfortunately, I had confused nay discussion of the authors' conviction that biology violates the second law of thermodynamics with my own description of the second law.

I regret the error and I apologize for the confusion.
