Two for Two

Mark Faller, Professor of Philosophy at Alaska Pacific University has just had a second chapter published in as many months, in the recently printed Origin(s) of Design in Nature (Springer,2012, http://www.springer.com/physics/complexity/book/978-94-007-4155-3). The book is an anthology of papers exploring the diverse, interdisciplinary possibilities of “how design emerges in complex systems, especially life.” Mark’s chapter, “Plato’s Pythagorean Cosmos: Order and Chaos in the Intelligence of Natural Design” examines the ways in which Plato showed how mathematical elegance is a determining factor in the orderly evolution of nature.

Last month Professor Faller had a chapter on “The Optimal and the Necessary in Leibniz’ Mathematical Framing of the Compossible” published in the book Metaphysics: Aristotelian, Scholastic, Analytic (Verlag, 2012).
