Overview
In 2007, Letizia, in his The Battle for Existence, outlined an entropy-based theory of existence, generally viewing entropy as the tendency towards death; the abstract of which is as follows: [1]

Gottfried Leibniz once asked "why does the universe exist? This book intends to the answer that question.”

The book is an an entropological explanation of the Darwinian "struggle for existence" postulate. In short, building on the 1944 work of Erwin Schrödinger, Letizia’s aim is to illustrate how:


“The second law of thermodynamics may operate on a social, as well as atomic level.”

In his book, Letizia also outlines his views on entropy ethics, where he reasons that ethics are used by humankind as a “bulwark against entropy”. [2]
