Description

Dismissing chaos theory as a crutch, Remy Lestienne argues that chance is a real creative force. Using insights that evoke C. S. Peirce and others, Lestienne finds support in many scientific developments for the presence of true chance in the world. His presentation of the history of the concept of chance and its present role in science will appeal strongly to readers with an interest in science and those who look for chance in metaphysical issues.show more
