Back in the time of Copernicus, most would have thought it impossible if you said that you were going to convince everyone that the Earth revolved around the Sun, rather than the other way around,... More > but it did eventually happen! So the idea of convincing everyone that they are not separate from nature & humans are not the center of the universe, but rather just one part of nature’s web does not seem too far-fetched either.

Complexity is all the rage in economics, social sciences, management theory, psychology, health care and more. However, the author contends, most of the related talk is an anti-scientific outburst... More > similar to Intelligent Design or Creationism. Frightened by rapid knowledge obsolescence, accelerating technology advances and web-like global interconnections, pop-complexity pundits are repelled by rationality and tend to associate it with greedy technocracy and mechanistic constructs. The book takes us for a trip to the core non-linear science, and reveals the true motives of the underlying Complexity Challenge, which is certainly not a fad.< Less
Software and Mind: The Mechanistic Myth and Its Consequences By Andrei Sorin
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Addressing general readers as well as software practitioners, "Software and Mind" discusses the fallacies of the mechanistic ideology and the degradation of minds caused by these fallacies.... More > Mechanism holds that every aspect of the world can be represented as a neat hierarchical structure of entities. But, while useful in fields like mathematics and manufacturing, this idea is generally worthless, because most aspects of the world are too complex to be reduced to simple structures. Our software-related affairs, in particular, cannot be represented in this fashion. And yet, all programming theories and development systems, and all software applications, attempt to reduce real-world problems to neat structures of data, operations, and features. Ultimately, by restricting ourselves to mechanistic software, we impoverish all aspects of our life that depend on software.< Less

There may be just two great questions in life - why am I here, and why is there suffering? In seeking answers to those questions, believers and skeptics alike have reduced God and the character and... More > our understanding of God into neat, pointless little boxes into which neither God nor the universe fit. In seeking resolution, can it be found in science, nature, and the universe itself? Does the universe hold clues to the nature of God, and can it point in the direction of solving both the question of life's meaning and purpose, and the existence of evil and suffering? This is a beautifully and powerfully written book of science and faith, seamlessly woven together not so much to provide answers as to break believers and skeptics out of their metaphysical, theological, and scientific ruts.< Less
