Dennett I 268
Function/Structure/Monod: Problem: one can see a contradiction in the fact that on the one hand the one-dimensional structure completely determines the function of the protein, on the other hand its function is bound to a three-dimensional structure whose information content is greater.
Solution: the information is contained in the specific milieu conditions! Initial conditions ensure that a certain structure is selected from the many possible ones. Elimination thus becomes ambiguity ("interpretation").
