Some brief overview of this book

Grammatical Man is the first book to tell the story of information theory, how it arose with the development of radar during WW2, and how it evolved. It describes how the laws and discoveries of information theory now support controversial revisions to Darwinian evolution, begin to unravel the mysteries of language, memory and dreams, and stimulate provocative ideas in psy Grammatical Man is the first book to tell the story of information theory, how it arose with the development of radar during WW2, and how it evolved. It describes how the laws and discoveries of information theory now support controversial revisions to Darwinian evolution, begin to unravel the mysteries of language, memory and dreams, and stimulate provocative ideas in psychology, philosophy, art, music, computers and even the structure of society.

Perhaps its most fascinating and unexpected surprise is the suggestion the order and complexity may be as natural as disorder and disorganization. Contrary to the entropy principle, which implies that order is the exception and confusion the rule, information theory asserts that order and sense can indeed prevail against disorder and nonsense. From the simplest forms of organic life to the words used to express our most complex ideas, from our genes to our dreams, from microcomputers to telecommunications, virtually everything around us follows simple rules of information.

Life and the material world, like language, remain "grammatical". Grammatical man inhabits a grammatical universe.
