From his perspective, order is inherent in the particularities of the region of fitness landscapes, and not due to the process of selection (although selection will initiate motion in fitness landscapes). Kauffman’s ‘NK Boolean network’ models exemplify his theses. Imagine a string of symbols with different settings at each symbol. The string is Boolean if a=2; say, each entry can only assume the values 0 or 1. 4 Given that the thrust of this exercise is to analyse regularities in fitness landscapes, it should be stressed that the definition of fitness is the big black box at the heart of his theory, and that the issue is finessed in practice by randomly assigning fitness ‘values’ to each permutation of symbols (Kauffman 1993:37–42).

Two centuries. The distinguished historian of physics Stephen Brush has already broached something like this thesis in his underrated book The Temperature of History (1978). He asserts there that, at least in the history of thermodynamics, one can discern swings between classicist and Romanticist temperaments of science that consciously evoke terms familiar from literary history. A Romantic view came to predominate around the 1830s, with a classical resurgence beginning in the 1870s, and a swing back to Romanticism after the turn of the century.

Define the following parameter for any cellular automaton with K states and N neighbours. Privilege one state as ‘quiescent’ and determine the nq possible modes of transition to this state out of the KN possible neighbouring states. Then let λ=(KN-nq)/KN. This, of course, is just the proportion of states out of the total possible that do not lead to quiescence; as a proportion, ranges from zero to one. Langton then claimed to have found that transitions between classes of dynamic behaviour were a simple function of .
