On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews University of British Columbia at Vancouver philosophy faculty member Richard Johns on his recent paper in the journal Synthese titled “Self-organisation in dynamical systems: a limiting result.” In the paper, Dr. Johns argues that there are limits to the complexity of structures that can be produced by self-organization. Johns shows that Darwinian evolution is actually a type of a self-organizing process, and that it too is limited in the types of biological structures it can produce.
