EARTH DESIGN reexamines, in historical context, the "problem of order" and change in sociological theory in the light of the findings of Chaos Theory.

Order generates chaos, and chaos generates order. These ideas are linked into a holistic perspective in which "centriphery" is seen as an attractor that accounts for order and change in human social life and entropy as an equal partner to information/energy in the creative thrust of human social life.
