The survival of the fastest Information technology is now essential to business evolution. Companies that invest in IT as a future resource will live to see the future. The rest won't. The hard reality of the new "Information Darwinism," a term coined by author Eric Marks, is brilliantly and provocatively described in e-Darwinism, a look at the make-or-break impact of IT on accelerating the global struggle for market share. The book offers a compelling look at just how the Internet has transformed business strategy and business strategy creation, IT strategy, and manufacturing strategy for manufacturing and service firms, and made significant inroads in driving revenue enhancement and cost savings as well as reducing a firm's time to market. The book also describes how much the ability to leverage IT has become a requirement for measuring-and selecting-future leaders.

The most systematic and comprehensive effort yet made to assess the role played by Darwinian ideas in the writings of English-speaking social theorists of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries."--Isis"In seeking to set the record straight, Bannister cuts through the amalgam with an intellectual shredder, exposing the illogic and incompatibility involved in fusing Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species with Herbert Spencer's Social Statics.... Bannister's familiarity with relevant texts and their reception by contemporary social theorists, scholars, and critics on both sides of the Atlantic is impressive."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History"A fine contribution to Anglo-American intellectual history."--Journal of American History
Holistic Darwinism

Holistic Darwinism @

USD 41.00
In recent years, evolutionary theorists have come to recognize that the reductionist, individualist, gene-centered approach to evolution cannot sufficiently account for the emergence of complex biological systems over time. Peter A. Corning has been at the forefront of a new generation of complexity theorists who have been working to reshape the foundations of evolutionary theory. Well known for his Synergism Hypothesisa theory of complexity in evolution that assigns a key causal role to various forms of functional synergyCorning puts this theory into a much broader framework in Holistic Darwinism , addressing many of the issues and concepts associated with the evolution of complex systems. Corning's paradigm embraces and integrates many related theoretical developments of recent years, from multilevel selection theory to niche construction theory, gene-culture coevolution theory, and theories of self-organization. Offering new approaches to thermodynamics, information theory, and economic analysis, Corning suggests how all of these domains can be brought firmly within what he characterizes as a postneo-Darwinian evolutionary synthesis.

Written in a simple, accessible style, Commonsense Darwinism offers a clear, critical examination of the subject. Assuming that the diversity of life, including human beings, is the result of evolution from common origins and that its driving force is natural selection, the book explores what this might mean for issues in ethics, philosophy of religion, epistemology, and metaphysics. The author's defense of free will makes this an especially stimulating read.

Philosophical Darwinism

Philosophical Darwinism @

USD 54.95
Philosophers have not taken the evolution of human beings seriously enough. If they did, argues Peter Munz, many long standing philosophical problems would be resolved. One of philosophical concequences of biology is that all the knowledge produced in evolution is a priori , i.e., established hypothetically by chance mutation and selective retention, not by observation and intelligent induction. For organisms as embodied theories, selection is natural and for theories as disembodied organisms, it is artificial. Following Popper, the growth of knowledge is seen to be continuous from the amoeba to Einstein'. Philosophical Darwinism throws a whole new light on many contemporary debates. It has damaging implications for cognitive science and artificial intelligence, and questions attempts from within biology to reduce mental events to neural processes. More importantly, it provides a rational postmodern alternative to what the author argues are the unreasonable postmodern fashions of Kuhn, Lyotard and Rorty.
