Analytical biology

Sommerhoff, G

The aim of this book is to provide the biologist, psychologist, and philosopher with a formal analysis of the abstract characteristics which distinguish the activities of the living beings from inorganic activities. W. Ross Ashby cites Sommerhoff and his "coenetic variables" in his work - effectively "essential variables" which the organism must monitor and work to maintain in order to have the promise of thriving and surviving. This monitoring might be done subconsciously or at a low level of consciousness.
