I had higher expectations of this book Lewin seemed interested in talking about the scientists than their ideas or at least he used individuals as the organizing principle of this book which made it difficult for me to end up with a solid holistic grasp of the science of complexity That does not mean the book was without some very fascinating ideas I d never come across the Gaia Theory before and I loved reading about artificial life Unfortunately I ve forgotten most everything else Maybe that s my fault rather than the book s Hard to say

Think of the the first bicycles or carsLots of experimentation to begin withAs time goes on and the world gets full of cycles or carsthe extremes get weeded out a few forms survive and subseuent innovation focusses on improvement on the remaining themes You go from generation of many themes to variation upon a few just like the Cambrian explosion of life pp70 71The basic argument is no than the belief that there are fundamental rules that determine the ualities of systems so we have the Emergence of self organizing dynamics p191 from cells to the planetary system ie Gaia theory The Author towards the end says from my gut I respond positively p184 but what this stomach science produces is an excitable overwrought voluble book chatty the author may not describe the scientists he meets as shaggy haired demi gods playing guitars on top of mountains which they crush beneath their feet but my impression was that this was how he regarded them and perhaps that he hoped something of the charisma he invested in them would rub off on to himself through association all of these scientists he lets us know gently he is on first name terms with In the book as in history surnames gradually evolve as the text progresses Good chunks of the book consist of people appearing to be amazed at things which are self evident ie that eco systems are systems that because the component parts are in relation to each other that changing one part will impact on the system as a whole and that they have the properties of stable systems unless they don t in which case they are not But then again I am not a scientist just a civilian I trust the judgement of my gut too however that does not mean that I trust Lewin s gut which is foreign to me if we were ants we could exchange the contents of our stomachs and thus perhaps on a chemical level change each other s thinking Earlier like a mighty burp another scientist points out that the data is lousy just after Lewin gets excited about all mass extinctions being caused by asteroid strikes One part of the argument is about the collapse of complex societies which illustrates the same point We live in complex societies and so are interested in their decline and fall however the data while suggestive is inconclusive for instance part of the argument in Collapse How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed is about Easter Island shortly after publishing dating data from Easter Island was reassessed and shifted by several hundred years in a stroke rendering it unlikely that human activity had been the main cause of the collapse of the island s ecology Elsewhere I have reviewed books discussing the end of the Roman empire which has been up for discussion since Saint Augustine the data is like a dose of salts to any theoryInterestingly in the book Levin is told that English gentlemen don t like the idea of Emergence of self organizing dynamics but urban Jews do or in other words this is about English empiricism versus German Idealistic philosophy or as Lewin has it Aristotle v Plato the bout of the aeon to be fought out in uncountable roundsI suppose from this we can learn that in science it is not the case that one view always supersedes another but that sometimes scientists orbit around the same ideas for centuries not because of evidence but because of basic differences in outlook and world understanding between people eg here gradualism vs catastropheAs a book about systems thinking this has very little to offer save a vision of scientists growing successively shaggier view spoiler but apparently lacking large talking dogs with insatiable appetites hide spoiler
