This book tells the story of how inert matter can acquire self-organizing and other properties ascribed to life. The author's multidisciplinary approach does not require knowledge of chemistry, physics, or biology on the part of the reader. Part I covers the properties of matter and evolutionary criteria. Part II presents an introduction to the necessary chemical concepts. Part III explains the self-organization of biosystems and the development of organisms.
