Beschreibung

This book is about morphogenesis as the genesis of forms. It is not restricted to plants growing from seed or animals developing from an embryo (although these do supply the most abundant examples) but also addresses kindred processes, from inorganic to social to biomorphic technology. It is about our morphogenetic universe: unplanned, unfair and frustratingly complicated but benevolent in allowing us to emerge, survive, and inquire into its laws.



A fascinating exploration of Morphogenesis - the genesis of forms

Describes the complexities of morphogenesis in language accessible to the layperson

Emphasizes connections between morphogenetic processess in inorganic, biological and social contexts
