Abstract

The word “anticipation” is in everyone’s mouth, but rarely in a way that does justice to the concept. “Anticipation” characterizes the fundamental distinction between the living and the non-living. In contra-distinction to physics, a science of anticipation acknowledges the purposiveness of the living.  Reporting on current research, the presentation is intended as a bridge-building attempt to other domains of knowledge and science.
