Description
xiii, 320 pages : 25 cm; Beyond reductionism -- Reductionism -- The physicists rebel -- The nonreducibility of biology to physics -- The origin of life -- Agency, value, and meaning -- The cycle of work -- Order for free -- The nonergodic universe -- Breaking the Galilean spell -- The evolution of the economy -- Mind -- The quantum brain? -- Living into mystery -- The two cultures -- Broken bones -- Ethics evolving -- A global ethic -- God and reinventing the sacred.; In Reinventing the Sacred, Kauffman argues that the science of complexity provides a way to move beyond reductionist science to something new: a unified culture where we see God in the creativity of the universe, biosphere, and humanity. Kauffman explains that the ceaseless natural creativity of the world can be a profound source of meaning, wonder, and further grounding of our place in the universe. His theory carries with it a new ethic for an emerging civilization and a reinterpretation of the divine. He asserts that we are impelled by the imperative of life itself to live with faith and courage-and the fact that we do so is indeed sublime. Reinventing the Sacred will change the way we all think about the evolution of humanity, the universe, faith, and reason. - Publisher.;
