The 2019 book Awareness and Life by philosopher Dwight Harris reveals the ultimate computational and emergentistic underpinnings of biological life.
Awareness is the self processing of information. In his book Awareness and Life: The Ontological Distinction of Biological Life, philosopher of biology Dwight Harris gives us his take on the computational nature and emergent complexity of biological life. Behind the nondescript cover, you’ll find incredibly illuminating content. Although written in what many consider technical but exact academic language and in scholarly paper format, the treatise will colorify your imagination with its profound and lucid revelations delivered in very manageable chunks with outlined text and summaries of points made, referenced and cross-referenced, filled with plenty of illustrations and diagrams.
