When the whole is greater than the sum of the parts--indeed, so
great that the sum far transcends the parts and represents something
utterly new and different--we call that phenomenon emergence. When the
chemicals diffusing in the primordial waters came together to form the
first living cell, that was emergence. When the activities of the
neurons in the brain result in mind, that too is emergence.
In
The Emergence of Everything, one of the leading scientists
involved in the study of complexity, Harold J. Morowitz, takes us on a
sweeping tour of the universe, a tour with 28 stops, each one
highlighting a particularly important moment of emergence. For instance,
Morowitz illuminates the emergence of the stars, the birth of the
elements and of the periodic table, and the appearance of solar systems
and planets. We look at the emergence of living cells, animals,
vertebrates, reptiles, and mammals, leading to the great apes and the
appearance of humanity. He also examines tool making, the evolution of
language, the invention of agriculture and technology, and the birth of
cities. And as he offers these insights into the evolutionary unfolding
of our universe, our solar system, and life itself, Morowitz also seeks
out the nature of God in the emergent universe, the God posited by
Spinoza, Bruno, and Einstein, a God Morowitz argues we can know through a
study of the laws of nature.
Written by one of our wisest
scientists, The Emergence of Everything offers a fascinating
new way to look at the universe and the natural world, and it makes an
important contribution to the dialogue between science and
religion.
