Chapter 3 - Holistic science of life–environment – mutualistic interfaces [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
The goal of this chapter is to present the first part of a description of a new form of holistic science, a science grounded in Life as the basis of value, a science able to solve the systemic human–environment crisis at its root. We present an introduction and overview—our starting point, working assumptions, and modeling strategies for Life–environment as a unified whole and how and why we have gotten to this perspective. We look at our science and modeling choices related to drawing system boundaries, how those choices impact the results and the values/assumptions promulgated, options for conceptualizing the entity–environment relationship, the unique power of autocatalysis to explain Life in a way that also suggests a new view of evolution, the synergy of cooperation and competition, and the synergy of life and death.
