No entailing laws, but enablement in the evolution of the biosphere
Speaker(s): Stuart Kauffman
Abstract:

Biological evolution is a complex blend of ever changing structural stability, variability and emergence of new phenotypes, niches, ecosystems. We wish to argue that the evolution of life marks the end of a physics world view of law entailed dynamics.
