About this Item: BasicBooks, New York, 1995. 1/4 cloth. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: fine. First Edition, First Printing. A fine first edition, first printing from a Nobel prizewinner. Black quarter-cloth over beige paper boards. Binding is sturdy and square. Text is clean and bright, with no markings whatever. In a fine, unclipped, original dust jacket. Dust jacket now protected in a clear, removable, archival cover. Laid in are two clippings of reviews. xix, 363 pp including index. Octavo. "The view of the origin of life as a kind of cosmic accident -- a "one-off" event, in British parlance -- has achieved wide currency within evolutionary thinking. Perhaps its ablest spokesman was Jacques Monod, who wrote in Chance and Necessity: Life appeared on earth: what, before the event, were the chances that this would occur? .[I]ts a priori probability was virtually zero. The idea is distasteful to most scientists. Among those who find the idea of life as a cosmic fluke distasteful is the Belgian cell biologist and Nobel laureate Christian de Duve. The argument, he observes in his new book Vital Dust, put the origin of life outside the reach of science: If this were so, we would be wasting our time trying to explain the origin of life in scientific terms. A number of eminent scholars have made this claim. Some have even pushed it to its logical conclusion, that if life is a highly improbable product of chance, it has no place in any sort of cosmological view we may entertain. Its emergence was a "lusus naturae," a cosmic joke. In the words of the late Jacques Monod, one of the greatest French biologists: "The universe was not pregnant with life." This statement has profound philosophical implications (p. 8).De Duve is himself a determinist about the origin of life and its subsequent evolution. While allowing that contingency will play a role in any evolutionary sequence, de Duve sees the universe as "a hotbed of life" (p. 292), where the emergence of organisms is almost certain to occur once conditions are right -- as, he argues, they often must be: In this organic cloud [of carbon compounds], which pervades the universe, life is almost bound to arise, in a molecular form not very different from its form on Earth, wherever physical conditions are similar to those that prevailed on our planet some four billion years ago. The conclusion seems to me almost inescapable. Those who claim that life is a highly improbable event, possibly unique, have not looked closely enough at the chemical realities underlying the origin of life. Life is either a reproducible, almost common-place manifestation of matter, given certain conditions, or a miracle. Too many steps are involved to allow for something in between. (p. 292)In Vital Dust, de Duve spells out in seven parts his "deterministic" case for the evolution of life, complex organisms, and, eventually, intelligence. Scientists, he writes, "are condemned by their calling to look for natural explanations of even the most unnatural- looking events," and what counts as an explanation is not "the facile recourse to chance" (p. 24). Thus, parts I to III are de Duve's argument for the relative ease of prebiotic and "protocell" evolution, parts IV to VI from the single cell to human intelligence, and part VII, evolution into the unknown (including, in a philosophical coda, the meaning of life).While Vital Dust is engagingly written, it falls far short of showing that Monod was wrong -- or, perhaps, that design theorists such as Charles Thaxton are wrong, when they argue that known physical and chemical regularities are insufficient to account for the specified complexity of even the simplest organisms. In particular, de Duve's scenario for the origin of life, in which "protometabolism" produces the materials necessary for the RNA world of the first self-replicating molecules, is, he admits, "purely conjectural" (p. 45). Hence, the reader is left with a sense of grand claims for determinism which cannot be sustained by empirical particulars. Sure, it's easy to build the Pyramids of Giza. Just put one brick on top of anoth. Seller Inventory # 790

About this Item: Random House, New York, 1992. Hardcover. Condition: New. First Edition.. 257 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Like New. ESSAYS. Jeerzy Kosinski's suicide in 1991 shocked the literary world. A Polish emigre who had survived unspeakable horrors as a child during World War II, Kosinski was a flamboyant figure whose death only added to the aura of mystery that surrounded him. Passing By is Kosinski's legacy, a collection of writings, never before published in book form, that answers many of the questions about Kosinski and his work - a revealing and provocative self-portrait by an author whose life was shrouded in enigma. (Key Words: Jerzy Kosinski, Essays, Poland, Pope John Paul II, Warren Beatty, Jacques Monod, Alexander Solzhenitsyn). book. Seller Inventory # 41610X1

In the spring of 1940, the aspiring but unknown writer ALBERT CAMUS and budding scientist JACQUES MONOD were quietly pursuing ordinary, separate lives in Paris. After the German invasion and occupation of France, each joined the Resistance to help liberate the country from the Nazis, ascended to prominent, dangerous roles, and were very lucky to survive. After the war and through twists of circumstance, they became friends, and through their passionate determination and rare talent they emerged as leading voices of modern literature and biology, each receiving the Nobel Prize in their respective fields.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1998 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Theoretische (Erkenntnis, Wissenschaft, Logik, Sprache), Note: 1, Technische Universitat Carolo-Wilhelmina zu Braunschweig (Seminar fur Philosophie), Veranstaltung: Philosophische Probleme der Biologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Frage, ob unser Planet als einziger im Universum Leben hervorgebracht hat, beschaftigt die Menschen seit jeher. Doch bei der Beantwortung dieser Frage scheiden sich die Geister. Die einen, wie z.B. Jacques Monod, der den Menschen als einen Zigeuner am Rande des Universums bezeichnet, halten die Entstehung von Leben auf anderen Planeten fur unwahrscheinlich. Andere wiederum halten dies jedoch nicht fur ausgeschlossen. Doch wenn es Leben auf anderen Planeten gibt, wie konnte dies aussehen? In Filmen begegnen uns stets Lebensformen, die eine menschenahnliche Gestalt und den Willen zur Kontaktaufnahme besitzen. Welche Lebensformen konnten wir jedoch auf anderen Planeten erwarten? Welche Voraussetzungen benotigt Leben uberhaupt, um sich zu entwickeln? Selbst wenn Leben auf anderen Planeten existiert, wie konnen wir es ausfindig machen und werden wir jemals den Kontakt aufnehmen konnen? Sicher ist, da heute fur einen Groteil der Menschen die Existenz auerirdischer Lebensformen wahrscheinlicher erscheint, als deren Nichtexistenz. So sind Ufosichtungen, Begegnungen mit Auerirdischen und Berichte uber angebliche Ufoabsturze an der Tagesordnung. Auf alle diese Berichte werde ich in diesem Referat jedoch nicht eingehen.
