Complexity in ecological systems series


This is a paperbound reprint of a 2001 book. In a sophisticated (but clear and understandable) exposition, Rosen (physiology and biophysics, Dalhousie U.) rejects both the necessity and the sufficiency of the mechanistic model/metaphor for biological life, and proposes an alternative, drawn equally from experience in biology, physics, and mathematics.
