Emergence: From Chaos To Order (Paperback)John H. Holland (author)
Paperback 272 Pages / Published: 23/04/1999
- Not available
In this important book, John H. Holland dramatically shows us that the emergence" of order from disorder has much to teach us about life, mind and organizations. Creative activities in both the arts and the sciences depend upon an ability to model the world. The most creative of those models exhibits emergent properties, so that what comes out is more than what goes in." From the ingenious checkers-playing computer that started beating its creator in game after game, to the emotive creations of the poet, Emergence shows that Holland's theory successfully predicts many complex behaviours in art and science.
