The Found and the Made: Science, Reason, and the Reality of Nature

The Found and the Made: Science, Reason, and the Reality of Nature

This book critically examines how mathematical modeling shapes and limits a scientific approach to the natural world and how it affects society’s views of nature. It questions concepts such as determinism, reversibility, equilibrium, and the isolated system and challenges the view of physical reality as passive and inert. Dan Bruiger argues that if nature is real, it must transcend human representations. In particular, it can be expected to self-organize in ways that elude a mechanist treatment.
