Dichotomous views of development still underlie many fundamental debates in the biological and social sciences. Developmental systems theory (DST) offers a new conceptual framework with which to resolve such debates.

DST views ontogeny as contingent cycles of interaction among a varied set of developmental resources, no one of which controls the. In an unprecedented meeting of philosophical thought, financial markets, and the art world, The Medium of Contingency explores how works of art write contingency into the present, and are in turn written by the contingency of their materials, and how these exchanges interact with other markets.

Necessity or Contingency. From three premises having to do with necessity and contingency, the Master Argument derived a contradiction which imperiled freedom.

A text of Aristotle helds to reconstruct the argument in historical terms, to show its soundness to understand its architectonic power for opening clear perspectives in ancient but also. The essence of a contingency is, Yes, you may do that, as long as you first do this.
