There is a brief review of DNA whose structure is a helix with translational and rotational symmetry and if artificially separated the complementary strands monpd spontaneously reform.
Monod points out that this animist line of thought is still present in philosophy that makes no essential distinction between matter and life and frames biological evolution as a component of cosmic evolution evolutive force operating throughout the entire universe.

The ,onod then spends some time developing the fact that the preceding sequence of amino acids had no bearing on what the next amino acid will be. He then talks about the evolution of our ancestors including the development of upright posture which allowed them to become hunters.
Monod makes the point that selection of a mutation is due to the environmental surroundings of the organism and the teleonomic performances. Azar y necesidadMonod Jacques. The third chapter is named “Maxwell’s Demons”. In chapter four “Microscopic Cybernetics” the author starts out by repeating the necesdad of extreme specificity of enzymes and the extreme efficiency of the chemical machinery in living organisms.
The author continues to mention the sterospecific, spontaneous assembly of ribosomes and T4 bacteriophage from their protein constituents in vitro. Cooperative and antagonistic interactions of ligands are indirect: For this work, which has been proved generally correct for bacteria, the two men were awarded a Nobel Prize.
The formation of a sterospecific complex between protein and necesidaf and the catalytic activation of a reaction within the complex he stresses again that the reaction is oriented and specified by the structure of the complex. Monod describes as “the frontier” the work that is to be done that xzar enable us to understand how this instrument of intuitive preconception works.

One is teleonomy which Monod defines as the characteristic of being “endowed with a purpose or project” Monod, 9. The “error” in the genetic message will be replicated with a high degree of fidelity.
In regards to structure, all living beings are made up of proteins and nucleic acids and these are the same residues twenty amino acids and four nucleotides. Each stage is more highly ordered and results from neceisdad interactions between products of the previous stage and the initial source is the genetic information represented by the polypeptide sequences.
Monod splits up organism development into four broad stages: It starts azat by stating that proteins are the molecular agents of teleonomic performance in living beings.
Synthesis of mRNA is blocked when the repressor is bound to the operator. Monod stresses the importance of the molecular theory of the genetic code as a physical theory of heredity and brands it as the “secret of life”. The author then writes that a primary structure exists in a single or a small number of related states, as is the case with allosteric proteins precisely defined conformational native state under normal physiological conditions.
At the end of this chapter Monod states that the thesis he “shall present in this book is that the biosphere does not contain a predictable class of objects or of events but constitutes a particular occurrence, compatible indeed with first principles, but not deducible from those principles and necesidas essentially unpredictable” Monod, And lastly the evolution of a teleonomic apparatus around necesidda “replicative structures” would lead to the primitive cell.
First there must have been the formation of nucleotides and amino acids from simple carbon compounds and non-biological catalysts. First the folding of the polypeptide sequence into globular proteins, then the association between proteins into organelles, thirdly the interactions between cells that make up tissue and organs, and lastly “coordination and differentiation of chemical activities via allosteric-type interactions” Monod, In the last paragraph of the preface Monod explains that his essay developed from the Robins Lectures that he gave in at Pomona College.
Toward the end of the preface Monod offers apology for any overly tedious or technical sections. The author next turns his attention to the central nervous system. Parallel activation takes place when the first enzyme of a metabolic sequence is activated by a metabolite synthesized by an independent parallel sequence. This jarring and isolating revelation places value judgments within the hands of man himself. The author now concentrates on what he views as one of the unique properties of higher level organisms, namely that of simulating experience subjectively so as to anticipate results and prepare action.
In chapter eight “The Frontiers” Monod captures the azzar of wonderment one feels when considering the extraordinary diversity and complexity of organisms that has been brought about through billions of years of evolution when he says ” The miracle stands “explained”; it does not strike us as any less miraculous” Monod, Three stages which led to the emergence of the first organism are proposed.
The antibody that is able to bind to the antigen is multiplied. Monod spends some time stressing that there need be no chemical relationship between a substrate and an allosteric ligand and it is this “gratuity” that has allowed molecular evolution to make a huge network of interconnections and make each organism an autonomous functional unit.

By virtue of an enzyme’s capacity to form sterospecific and non-covalent complexes with specific substrate the substrate is correctly presented in necesiead precise orientation that specifies the catalytic effect of the enzyme. Prior to folding there is no biological activity.
He talks briefly about how ideas are selected based on the performance value and the spreading power he states that ideas that explain man by assigning him a destiny spread the most.
He briefly discuses the murky metaphysical vitalism of Henri Bergson and then discusses the scientific vitalism of Elsasser and Polanyi which contend that physical forces and chemical interactions that have been studied in non-living matter do not fully account for invariance and teleonomy and therefore other “biotonic laws” are at work in living matter.
He explains that galactoside permease one of the proteins in the lactose system enables the galactoside sugars to penetrate and accumulate within the cell.
With mild treatment protomers are separated and the oligomer protein loses function but if the initial “normal” conditions are restored the subunits will usually reassemble spontaneously. A totally blind process can by definition lead to anything; it can even lead to vision itself” Monod He says that the important message of science is that in the defining of a new source of truth which demands revision of ethical premises and a total break with the animist tradition.
Our values are rooted in animism and are at odds with objective knowledge and truth. The Kingdom and darkness.
Monod joined the staff of the Pasteur Institute in Paris in and became its director in He says this “random” message seems to be composed haphazardly from a random origin and he ends the chapter poetically when he writes “Randomness caught on the wing, preserved, reproduced by the machinery of invariance and thus converted into order, rule, and necessity.
