Michael Gunter, an ecologist, examines the Levolution process, which underlies a whole new paradigm that explains how the universe works and what it is doing. It is responsible for creating every type of naturally occurring system we know.
In easy-to-understand language, Gunter explains how Levolution is based on simple properties of energy flowing in systems. Learning how it works will help you understand: the cosmological relevance of energy and its laws; the contents of the universe as twenty- three levels of increasing, entropically functional order imposed on a single batch of energy; that the universe appears to have a purpose.
The end result is an entirely new perspective on what we call order and a new spin on what ancient and recent thinkers have said about the nature of the universe.
The newly proposed Laws of Functional Order will equip you to understand the profound role of thermodynamic natural selection, universal evolution, and the cosmic order caused by Levolution.
How do child analysts work with dreams at the practical and theoretical levels? In the practice of child analysis today do we find analysis of dreams and the classic differentiations between manifest and latent content? Is attention accorded to the mechanisms of condensation, displacement etc. described by Freud? The current discussion on working with children's dreams and their equivalents in today's practice of child psychoanalysis forms the central focus of the contributions collected in this book.
