Reflections on a Theory of Organisms: Holism in Biology
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIn a thought-provoking and controversial work first published in 1987, eminent geophysicist Walter M. Elsasser argues that the behavior of living organisms cannot be reduced to physico-chemical causality. Suggesting that molecular biology today is at the same point as Newtonian physics on the eve of the quantum revolution, Elsasser lays the foundation for a theoretical biology that points the way toward a natural philosophy of organic life.
PortraitWalter M. Elsasser (1904-1991) was Homewood Professor at the Johns Hopkins University. His many books include The Physical Foundations of Biology, Atom and Organism, and Memoirs of a Physicist in the Atomic Age. He was awarded the National Medal of Science by President Reagan in 1987.
