Erratum: in the cut and paste and find and replace process Brian Goodwin was transformed to Milton Keynes. The same bug affected Mae-Wan Ho in the next post. This is due to a misplaced comma. I’ll restore that.
Brian Goodwin,: “Since 1859, the mechanism of natural selection and the survival of the fittest is imposed as the only explicatory thesis of Life on Earth. Origins, extinctions and the adaptations have all been studied through the prism of Darwinism. There is another explanation for the origin of the diversity of species. Similar to the Newtonian point of view of the world which predominated until the Einsteinian revolution of the 20th century, Darwinism must be replaced by a new theory which admits that the complexity is one inherent and emergent quality of life and not only the result of random mutations and natural selection. The organisms are as cooperative as they are competitive; as altruistic as they are selfish, as creative and playful as they are destructive and repetitive.”
We don’t know here why « Darwinism must be replaced« . But we certainly know that darwinism isn’t about organisms but species. And species can be symbiotics [mutual profit] or antagonists [competition], but I didn’t think that anyone could qualify species as altuistic, playful, or repetitive! There seems to be a confusion between species and organisms in Goodwin’s text, and Staune don’t talk about it.
