Description

Drawing on the evidence and insights of biology, physics, astronomy, and cosmology, this is an original and challenging vision of order and change in the universe. Rejecting the popular view that the universe will eventually collapse upon itself, Louise Young argues that the tendency towards increasing entropy is merely one aspect of a single process that is all the time creating more complex, highly organized, and more efficient forms of matter, from the microscopic to the stellar.show more

Back cover copy

Bringing together the evidence and insights of biology and physics, of astronomy and cosmology, Louise Young offers a profoundly original and stirring vision of order, form, change and the creative forces in the universe. Opposing the conventional view that the universe is running down and will eventually collapse upon itself, Young eloquently argues that the tendency toward increasing entropy is merely one aspect of a single process that is creating more complex, highly organized, and more efficient forms of matter all the time, and at every level - from the microscopic to the stellar.show more
