Chaos, Irreversibility and Indeterminism

There is a debate going on concerning the nature of science of today
that centres round theproblems of chaos, irreversibility and
indeterminism. The debate has been provoked by theworks of Ilya
Prigogine, who advocates a principal turn in science during the last
decadesof XX-th century. The claims of Ilya Prigogine have been
criticised by Jean Bricmont, whorefuses to recognise the novelty of the
approach of I. Prigogine. It seems, however, that J.Bricmont has not hit
the target with his criticism. Putting it somewhat roughly, the main
reason of I. Bricmont's misfire seems to be his concentration on the
problem of determinism,whereas the heart of the matter lies in
irreversibility. Therefore, the aim of the talk is clarifying the issues
of indeterminism and irreversibility in the light of the debate
mentioned above. It isuseful to fulfil this purpose by addressing the
nature of the different types of chaos,deterministic and quantum.
Although the main source of the discussion is contemporary, Ineed to
take a short look back at the ideas of Ludwig
Boltzmann, whose works have clearlyinspired both of the debating
parties.
