The Biological Basis of Variability

by Robert Rosen 1983

This chapter is concerned with the nature of variability and the assessment of some of its consequences. Our particular point of departure is biology, although much of our discussion is perfectly general and applies universally. We feel that it is important to have a good understanding of the nature of variability because, despite its central role, it is seldom explicitly discussed, and many incorrect conclusions are based on misunderstandings of its nature and its connotations.
