From Library Journal:

Pagels (New York Academy of Sciences) deals with three themes: development of the sciences of complexity (the extension of scientific frontiers into areas previously considered too complex for human analysis), the role of the computer as a research instrument used to simulate and model these complexities, and the corresponding change in the philosophy of science caused by developments in the first two areas. He believes that the computer will change our view of the world, transform scientific enterprise, and reduce the schism between those who think about science (philosophers) and those who do it (scientists). He has strong opinions on a variety of subjects, and this book includes something of interest, if not controversy, for scientists, computer specialists, and futurists. BOMC alternate. Hilary D.

From Publishers Weekly:

Serious readers shouldn't be put off by the New Age imprint on the esteemed physicist's last work. Focusing here on three main themes--the advent of the sciences of complexity, the research role of computers and the philosophy of science, the late Pagels "again demonstrates his gift for synthesizing complex scientific information into concise, readable prose," wrote PW.
