The Re-Emergence of Emergence: The Emergentist Hypothesis From Science to Religion

Oxford University Press (2006)
This volume introduces readers to emergence theory, outlines the major arguments in its defence, and summarizes the most powerful objections against it. It provides the clearest explication yet of this exciting new theory of science, which challenges the reductionist approach by proposing the continuous emergence of novel phenomena.
