In fact, some systems in nature are observed to exhibit emergence based upon the interactions of autonomous parts, and some others exhibit emergence that at least at present cannot be reduced in this way. Although many previous emergentist theories have been decisively undermined, Vision argues that emergent options are still viable on some issues.
Weak Re-emergence book describes new properties arising in systems as a result of the interactions at an elemental Re-emergence book.
