Subject: Re: BHA: Emergence and Levels


     For those interested, a great place to begin serious understanding of 
     emergence is
     
     William Wimsatt, 1997, "Aggregativity: Reductive heuristics for 
     finding emergence" in Philosophy of Science, Supplement to Vol.64,#4 
     (Proceedings of the 1996 Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science 
     Association, Part II, Symposia Papers, edited by Lindley Darden), pp., 
     S372-S384. 
     
     Wimsatt's other papers, as referenced in this one, are also well worth 
     finding and reading.
