The five volumes in the series include: "Quantum Cosmology and the Laws of Nature" (vol. 1, 1993)- "Chaos and Complexity" (vol. 2, 1995)- "Molecular and Evolutionary Biology" (vol. 3, 1998)- "Neuroscience and the Person" (vol. 4, 1999)- and "Quantum Mechanics" (vol. 5, 2001), and are distributed by University of Notre Dame Press.
