Introduction to Non-Genetic Darwinism

Although this course is nearly complete, feel free to help out! You are encouraged to add or edit lessons.

The aim of the course is to discuss the possibility of applying evolutionary principles to other fields, including fields outside biology. We discuss the principles of self-organization down to the Physical Laws that regulate it, then give numerous examples of how Darwinism is being used. We argue that the term for such applications should be "Non-Genetic Darwinism." A discussion of relevant topics is presented.
