At this new macro-level, humans are linked first of all to families the last link unjverse the previous diagramthen to societies, larger cultures, organiaing finally planetary consciousness.
Evolutionary Biology in Philosophy of Biology categorize this paper. Rather it is epigenetics, the interaction of the genetic code and the environmental circumstances of the individual organism.

It seems, too, that “The Self-Organizing Universe” was also an early pre-cursor of the “Big History” movement which seeks to take a “Big” look at world history, starting from the Big Bang, moving through evolution, and on to a global perspective on the emergence of civilizations.
Jacob rated it really liked it Jul 23, Open Preview See a Problem? Unjverse Nobel Prize winning chemist Ilya Prigogine and his work in dissipative structures, order through fluctuation, and process structures, Jantsch walks through the evolution of evolution, the unfolding of the various stages of symmetry breaks in the evolution of complexity in the universe.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Socio-cultural evolution which means evolutionary change at the social, cultural, or civilisational level, is the most subtle of all, because here there is an inversion or self-reflection, by which the micro-scale evolution now becomes macro-scale evolution. This article has no associated abstract. It begins with the convergence of smaller macro-structures and larger micro-structures continues with the formation of the prebiotic Earth and planetary biosphere Gaiaand from there ecosystems and so on, down to societies and group and family behaviour ethologysociobiologywhile at the same time on the micro-scale, pre-biotic dissipative structures lead to prokaryote organismsthen eukaryotesmulticellular life, and so on.
Each involves feedback between the macro and micro jjantsch and vice-versa, so for example photosynthesis and respiration by prokaryotes alters the atmospheric and chemical conditions of orhanizing Earth which in turn maintain optimal jantsdh for life Gaia hypothesis. Erich Jantsch – – G.

The contours of this paradigm emerge from the synthesis of a number of important, recently developed concepts, and provide a scientific foundation to a new world-view which emphasizes process over structure, noneq The evolution of the universe – ranging from cosmic and biological to sociocultural evolution – is viewed in terms of the unifying paradigm of self-organization.
This is no easy read but the view it presents is one that continues to unfold in the continuing research in complex systems theory, nonlinear dynamics, self-adaptive systems, and a host of related inquiries including the embodied systems approach in cognitive science. The Characteristics and Acquisition of Evolutionary Competence. Jantsch is inspired by and draws on the work of Ilya Prigogine concerning dissipative structures and nonequilibrium states.
Of these three stages, Cosmic evolution begins with the Big Bang and progresses through the convergence of macro-evolution here referring to cosmological scalenot evolutionary theory and speciation through the condensation of energy and radiation into galaxies, stars, and planets, and micro-evolution through the building up of sub-atomic particles, atoms, molecules, and crystals and rocks.
