The Sum of the Parts - Paul Davies article
The New Scientist
5 March 2005
"Take a bucketful of subatomic particles. Put them together one way, and you get a baby. Put them together another way and you'll get a rock. Put them together a third way and you'll get one of the most surprising materials in existence: a high-temperature superconductor. How can such radically different properties emerge from different combinations of the same basic matter?"
A provocative discussion of the ideas of weak and strong emergence.
