Chance and necessity; an essay on the natural philosophy of modern biology. Translated from the French by Austryn Wainho

by Jacques Monod


"For some time now, the unpleasant idea has been dawning on mankind that it may owe its existence to nothing but a role of some cosmological dice. But until recently hard proof has been missing and the larger philosophical implications have remained obscure. What Jaques Monod is here to say in his difficult but important book is that the proof is now available and the implications may necessitate a revolution in human thought."
