In a book that has become a milestone of scientific writing Dr. Blum uses “time’s arrow,” the second law of thermodynamics, as a key concept to show how the nature and evolution of the nonliving world place limits on the nature and evolution of life. He seeks to show that, from the beginning of the universe, physical and chemical laws have inexorably channeled the course of evolution so that possibilities were already limited when life first emerged.

Originally published in 1951.
