A major scientific revolution had begun, a new paradigm that rivals Darwin's theory in importance. At its heart is the discovery of the order that lies deep within most complex of systems, from the origin of life, to the workings of giant corporations, to the rise and fall of great civilisations. And more than anyone else, this revolution is the work of one man, Stuart Kauffman, visionary pioneer of the new science of complexity, Now, in At Home in the Universe, Kauffmanbrilliantly weaves together the excitement of intellectual discovery and a fertile mix of insights to give the general reader a fascinating look at this new science - and at the forces for order that lie at the edge of chaos.
