Following up on the post from the other week (Greenflame: Emergent systems & the church) here’s a primer on emergence written by Philip Clayton – Science & Theology News – Features: Emergence. In it he looks at some of the different views on emergence, science and religion.
(And for those of you who were looking for an online version of the David Wollert’s paper “Complexity Theory as Model and Metaphor for the Church” there doesn’t appear to be one yet. However Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith (ASA) do publish stuff online but several months (years?) after the paper copy comes out. Maybe contact them direct and see when it’ll be online.)
