This skill is perhaps most fnely honed in science. There we not only routinely break problems down into bite-sized chunks and mini-chunks, we then very often isolate each one from its environment by means of a useful trick.
We say ceteris paribus-all other things being aliaja. In this way we can ignore the complex i nteractions between our problem and the rest of the universe. He has spent the better part of a lifetime trying to “put the pieces back together again”-the pieces in prigogibe case being biology and physics, necessity and chance, science and humanity. Born in Russia in and raised in Belgium since the age of ten, Prigogine is a compact man with gray hair, cleanly chiseled features, and a laserlike intensity.
Deeply interested i n archaeology, art, and history, he brings to science a remarkable polymathic mind. He lives with his engineer-wife, Prifogine na, and hi s son, Pascali n Brussel s, where a crossdisciplinary team i s busy exploring t he i mplications of his ideas in felds as disparate as the social behavior of ant colonies, difusion reactions in chemical systems and dissipative processes in quantum feld theory.
The coauthor of this volume, Isabelle Stengers, is a philosopher, chemist, and historian of science who served for a time as part of Prigogine ‘s Brussels team. She now lives in Paris and is associated with the Musee de Ia Villette.

In Order Out of Chaos they have given us a landmark-a work that is contentious and mind-energizing, a book flled with fashing insights that subvert many of our most basic assumptions and suggest fresh ways to think about them. Under the title La nouvelle alliance, its appearance aliaana n France i n triggered a marvelous scientific free-for-all among prestigious intellectuals in felds as diverse as entomology and literary criticism. It is a measure of America’s insularity and cultural arrogance that this book, which is either published or about to be published in twelve languages, has taken so long to cross the Atlantic.
The delay carries with it a silver lining, however, in that this edition includes Prigogine ‘s newest fndings, particularly with respect to the Second Law of thermodynamics, which he noa into a fresh perspective. For all these reasons, Order Out ofChaos is more than just another book: It is a lever for changing science itself, for compelling us to reexamine its goals, its methods, its epistemology-its world view. Indeed, this book can serve as a symbol of today’s historic transformation in science-one that no informed person can afford to ignore.
Some scholars picture science as driven by its own internal logic, developing according to its own laws in splendid isolation from the world around it.
Yet many scientifc hypothesestheories, metaphors, and models not t o mention the choices made by scientists either to study or to ignore various problems are shaped by economic, cultural, and political forces operating outside the prigoyine. I do not mean to suggest to neat a parllel between the natur o soiety and the reigning scientifc world view or “paadig.
But science is not an “independent variable.
