Presented here for the first time is the idea that emotional development is self-organizing. It replaces older ideas that genes or environments control the process of development. Self-organization is one aspect of a revolutionary approach to science that embraces chaos theory and the new science of complexity. Physicists, chemists, biologists, and other scientists see self-organization as a significant way of explaining patterns in nature.
