about this item

The book describes a common ground between the biology of life and the humanity of life without compromising either discipline. It attempts to bridge the gap between our "two cultures"— the sciences and the humanities, as advocated by C P Snow fifty years ago. This book connects our meager existence to the entire living world and the universe, physically and spiritually, through the simple perspective of "self," being defined as a system that seeks its own perpetuation.
