Laws/Natural Laws/Kauffman: describes his work as "Physics of Biology". Here there are many regularities, but no laws such as "nutritional laws" or "laws of locomotion".
These regularities result from a cost benefit account.
In the car, for example, almost any form can be explained in this way. Not by law but by norms.
For example, the fact that the mouth is almost always at the front of living beings is a regularity. Why talk about the law?_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side.
