The article attached below is the introduction of the book written by Ilya Prigogine and Isabelle Stengers entitled Order Out Of Chaos: Man’s New Diialogue With Nature. Written in 1984, the intro already predicted the emergence of a new kind of science that is based on the multiple, the temporal, and the complex. Prigogine and Stengers shows in this book that science, when done properly, will enable us to discover new forms of order that will serve as the basis for a new relationship between humans and nature.
