A long and intellectually demanding analysis of research paradigms (cybernetics. AI, ALife) for bridging the gap between _phusis_ and _techne_ (the natural and the artificial). Suggests that evolutionary robotics is the way forward for AI, but how do we know that that won't turn out to be another passing phase?
