Inhaltsangabe:

The relationship between law and chance in the early evolution of life is the guiding theme of this provocative study. The author explores modern ideas about the origin of life from the standpoint of philosophy of science, emphasizing the contribution made by information theory.Küppers asserts that all life phenomena are steered by information and that this information is already defined materially in a universal form at the level of the biological macromolecule. The question of the origin of life turns out to be the question of the origin of biological informationInformation and the Origin of Life takes up the fundamental problems of whether and, if so, to what extent the origin of semantic information during evolution can be explained as a general phenomenon within the framework of physics and chemistry. The results could have far-reaching consequences for such fields as the philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence.Bernd-Olaf Küppers has long focused his attention on basic questions of natural science and the philosophy of science at the borders of physics, chemistry, and biology. He has been engaged since 1971 in research at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, and from 1979 to 1984 he held lecture courses in philosophy at the University of Göttingen

Buchbeschreibung London: S. O. Beeton, 1861, 1861. Octavo (169 × 109 mm). Bound in contemporary diced calf, red morocco label to spine lettered in gilt, gilt raised bands to spine, blind tools to spine, brown endpapers, all edges red. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Tips skilfully refurbished, small bump to front cover, hinges repaired, odd spot of foxing to contents. An excellent copy. Colour frontispiece, engraved colour title-page, 12 illustrated colour plates. Black and white illustrations to text throughout. First edition, first issue (with "Bouverie St" on the illustrated title page), of the domestic bible of the Victorian age, in an attractive contemporary binding. It was the first book to supplant the household culinary authority, Hannah Glasse's Art of Cookery, which had remained so for over a century since its first publication in 1747. In its first year of publication Beeton's Book of Household Management sold 60,000 copies, and two million by 1868. Despite its author's death four years after publication (at the age of only 28, a fact which must snuff out any sense of Beeton's passionate, energetic book as being the product of middle-aged housewifery), the book has been constantly updated and its popularity has lived on to the present day. As well as comprising over 900 pages of recipes (which are illustrated, for the first time in this genre of book production, with colour plates), Beeton's boldly comprehensive text also contains guidance on home economics and general home life (including an interesting rundown of the laws the of the land), and even some more philosophical passages on the ethical role of women in the world of the Victorian male; "For Mrs Beeton, a people's 'way of taking their meals, as well as their way of treating women' were marks of civilisation. Dining well 'implies both the will and the skill to reduce to order, and surround with idealisms and grace, the more material conditions of human existence'" (ODNB). Artikel-Nr. 119998
