About the Author

John L. Casti received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Southern California in 1970. In 1974, after holding positions at the RAND Corporation and the University of Arizona, he became one of the first research staff members at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna, where he stayed until 1986. Since 1992, he has been a professor and resident researcher at the Santa Fe Institute. He is also a professor at the Technical University of Vienna. The author of numerous books, he divides his time between Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Vienna.

From Our Editors

A mathematician presents the great problems of modern science with a unique twist--in the form of a jury trial. Casti argues for the prosecution and the defense, and then renders a verdict on the Origin of Life, Sociobiology, Language Acquisition and more.
