Summary
Coen describes the four ways that life, in the broadest term, is transformed: development through patterning, Darwinian selection, modifying neural interactions and connections, and cultural change as a result of human behavior and interaction; and argues that these four means of transformation are better understood not as separate processes, but as one common set of mechanisms for life's transformations
