The first important " i m p r o v e m e n t " to the Darwinian solution is supplied by a study of the reproductive rate of populations. This is considered to have produced an inestimable enrichment of Darwinian thought. I confess to a poor comprehension of the impact of such a t C h . Darwin, Letter to Lyell, 25 J u n e 1858; Life and Letters, I, p. 474, ed. by F. ), Appleton, New York, 1899. t This aspect of the D a r w i n i a n thesis is obviously pleasing to Jacques M o n o d . 44 ANTI-CHANCE " revision " of the problem because, after all, if the reproductive rate of a given population is greater than that of another, this is surely due to the greater fitness of the first population to reproduce!

F o r all purposes the half life of these structures is several hundreds of times greater than the period of molecular vibrations. The concept of order as far as water at the molecular level is concerned is valid, but the structure which this order represents is dynamic rather than static. The existence of networks of Η bonds explains why only molecules capable of establishing hydrogen bonds with water molecules are soluble in this solvent. ) are insoluble in water because water molecules form hydrogen bonds with themselves while hydrophobic molecules are associated by van der 32 ANTI-CHANCE Waals forces.

137. CHAPTER 3 THERMODYNAMICS AND BIOLOGICAL ORDER Even from a superficial examination it is evident that biological systems reveal an organization. The general tendency is to produce order where disorder existed. This phenomenon is in apparent contradiction with the second principle which specifies that the natural evolution of a system proceeds by way of an increase of disorder. Is this to say that living systems violate the second law of thermodynamics ? It is tempting at this point of the discussion briefly to recall the history of ideas in this field, since the day when at the end of the last century Rübner studied the total metabolism of organisms according to the methods of calorimetry.
