'Mario Bunge has over the years established himself as the prime exponent of a scientifically informed philosophy of man, society, and nature. His characteristic mode of approach seeks to integrate science into a seamless whole with traditional philosophical concerns. This book - clearly written, incisively argued, and widely informed - forms part of this larger project and offers us some vintage Bunge.' -- Nicholas Rescher, Department of Philosophy, University of Pittsburgh
Mario Bunge is the Frothingham Professor of Logic and Metaphysics in the Department of Philosophy at McGill University.
'The sheer range of scientific/philosophical disciplines dealt with, competently and systematically, in Emergence and Convergence, cannot fail to impress. Quantum mechanics, economics, ethics, linguistics, truth, probability, are all brought into Bunge's unified picture of the world.' -- Philip Goff Philosophy in Review
