Is the Primordial Soup Done Yet?
For evolution --- not to descend to the level of Creationist bilge --- there is Daniel R. Brooks and E.O. Wiley, Evolution as Entropy: Toward a Unified Theory of Biology (2nd edition, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1988); for economics, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, The Entropy Law and the Economic Process (Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University Press, 1971); for Pynchon criticism, almost any book commenting on The Crying of Lot 49 (excepting, of course, Pynchon's own introduction to Slow Learner). The palm for sheer loopiness is, however, reserved for Jeremy Rifkin, Entropy: A New World View (New York: Bantam Books, 1981), which sports an afterword by Georgescu-Roegen and a cover blurb from Al Gore.
