Reductionism, Emergence and Levels of Reality: The Importance of Being Borderline

This book discusses theory reduction in physics, which ...

The Re-Emergence of Emergence: The Emergentist Hypothesis from Science to Religion
Oxford University Press
Much of the modern period was dominated by a 'reductionist' theory of science. On this view, to explain any event in the world is to reduce it down to fundamental particles, laws, and forces. In recent years reductionism has been dramatically challenged by a radically new paradigm called 'emergence' According to this new theory, natural history reveals the continuous emergence of novel phenomena: new structures and new organisms with new causal ...
