Challenging Darwin's theories, Brian Goodwin argues that it is possible to understand evolution as a process that is pushed by the intrinsic properties of living matter, rather than pulled by natural selection. He shows how seemingly complex strucures such as wings or eyes can be built up in a series of simple, self-organising steps. Goodwin's new biology is not only an exact science, it is also a science for a new age that transforms the competitive individualism into a post-modern science of qualities.
