Richard Coren

photo neededIn human thermodynamics, Richard L. Coren (1932-) is American electrical engineering and computer scientist noted for his 1998 cybernetics theory of evolution, in which he mixes thermodynamics, paleontology, and information theory to argue that evolution, from the big bang to the present civilization, is single coherent process, in the form of what he calls “evolutionary trajectories”. [1]

In his 2006 book God and Science Among the Infinities, Coren attempts to use complexity theory, intermixed with bits of thermodynamics (citing: Jeffrey Wicken, James Kay, Eric Schneider, Ilya Prigogine, and Rod Swenson), such as Bénard cells, to argue that God originated in the mathematical concept of infinities.

Coren completed his PhD at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. He is currently a professor emeritus at Drexel University. His main research focus has been in electromagnetic fields, antennas, shielding, and radio frequency interference. In the last ten years, his focus has been on the cybernetics of evolving systems.
