David Krakauer (born December 28, 1967) is an American evolutionary biologist, and President and William H. Miller Professor of Complex Systems at the Santa Fe Institute.
- Complexity science is a project aimed at unification, trying to establish principles that are common to all adaptive systems.
- I do view the march of technology as kind of inevitable. But I would like to accompany it with reason. And one form of reasoning that’s useful in these debates is to find precedence.
- I think the history of humanity is the history of our co-evolution with devices and artifacts that make our lives easier. And I think it's now a question from moral philosophy — not for science — to decide how we use them and what it would mean to be enslaved by them, whether we do so willingly or reluctantly and genuinely.
