The Santa Fe Institute, as key element in its founding activities, sponsored two workshops on 'Emerging Syntheses in Science.' There was unanimous agreement among the participants that Professor Gell-Mann's keynote address and the ensuing talks were of such high quality and general interest that it would be highly desirable to publish these for broader distribution.
