In a world where nice guys often finish last, why do humans value trust and cooperation? The science of complexity studies how single elements, such as species, spontaneously organize into complicated structures like ecosystems and economies, almost as if these systems were obeying a hidden yearning for order. Mitchell Waldrop's groundbeaking, non-fiction bestseller takes the readers into the hearts and minds of the scientists working at a think tank called the Santa Fe Institute, to tell the story behind their revolutionary discoveries.
