9780140174229: Fire in the Mind: Science, Faith and the Search for Order (Penguin science)

Concentrating on the Centre for the Study of Complex Systems in Los Alamos and the religious beliefs of surrounding communities, Journalist George Johnson explores the new science of complexity, which suggests the existence of a strong impulse towards order in nature, drawing parallels with the varied religious groups in the area and the source of the religious impulse in a need to deny chance and blind fate.
