The Self-Organizing Universe: Scientific and Human Implications of the Emerging Paradigm of Evolution

The evolution of the universe - starting from cosmic and organic to sociocultural evolution - is seen by way of the unifying paradigm of self-organization. The contours of this paradigm emerge from the synthesis of a couple of very important, lately built thoughts, and supply a systematic origin to a brand new world-view which emphasizes technique over constitution, nonequilibrium over equilibrium, evolution over permanency, and person creativity over collective stabilization.
