Engineering by Sunny Y. Auyang
Book DescriptionGenetic engineering, nanotechnology, astrophysics, particle physics: we live in an engineered world, one where the distinctions between science and engineering, technology and research, are fast disappearing. This book shows how, at the dawn of the 21st Century, the goals of natural scientists - to discover what was not known - and that of engineers - to create what did not exist - are undergoing an unprecedented convergence.

Mind in Everyday Life and Cognitive Science, Hardback (April 2001)
This work proposes a model of an "open mind emerging from the self-organization of infrastructures," which it opposes to prevalent models that treat mind as a disembodied brain or computer, subject to the control of external agents such as neuroscientists and programmers.
Foundations of Complex-system Theories, Paperback (August 1999)
Analyzes approaches to the study of complexity in the physical, biological, and social sciences.
