  Ilya Prigogine
Ilya Prigogine was born in Moscow on January 25, 1917, a few months before the Russian Revolution.
Prigogine excelled in the fine arts as a child, but his father's career in chemical engineering, as well as his older brother's decision to study chemistry, influenced young Prigogine to focus in that field upon entering Universitee Libre de Bruxelles.
Prigogine obtained an undergraduate degree and, in 1941, a doctorate from the Universitee Libre de Bruxelles.

He was raised and educated in Belgium, receiving his doctorate in 1941 and joining the faculty of the Free Univ. of Brussels in 1947.
He also founded and served as director (1967-2003) of what is now the Ilya Prigogine Center for Studies in Statistical Mechanics and Complex Systems at the Univ. of Texas at Austin.
Prigogine's work was important in the development of the field of complexity.

  Ilya Prigogine Summary
Ilya Prigogine was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1917.
Prigogine and others have also applied the principles of irreversible thermodynamics to such disparate systems as the development of traffic patterns on a highway in response to driving conditions and the buildup of giant termite mounds in which a large number of independent termites behave in an orderly, seemingly purposeful, and intelligent fashion.
Prigogine was born in Moscow, Russia and studied chemistry at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium.

 Vicomte Ilya Prigogine | Obituaries | News | Telegraph
Prigogine's controversial reinterpretation of classical thermodynamics was revolutionary because it suggested that the universe was not necessarily doomed to a long, slow slide into "heat death" in which all useful energy would be lost in random motion.
Ilya Prigogine was born into a Jewish family in Moscow on January 25 1917, nine months before the outbreak of the Russian Revolution.
Prigogine divided his time between Brussels, where he was professor at the Free University from 1951 and director of the International Solvay Institutes from 1959, and Austin, Texas, where he was Professor of Physics and Chemical Engineering from 1967.

 Ilya Prigogine
Prigogine was a leader in the fields of nonlinear chemistry and physics, whose research helped create a greater understanding of the role of time in the physical sciences and biology.
Prigogine has called these systems dissipative systems, because they are formed and maintained by the dissipative processes which take place because of the exchange of energy between the system and its environment and because they disappear if that exchange ceases.
Prigogine’s early work at UT was focused on the problem of dissipative structures, but in later years he became more and more involved with the problem of reconciling the arrow of time with Newtonian and quantum dynamics.

Ilya Prigogine Nobel Laureate of chemistry in 1977.
In 1977 Prigogine was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry “for his contribution to the thermodynamics of irreversible processes and, in particular, to the theory of dissipative structures”.
And their incorporation was wrought first and foremost by the works of Ilya Prigogine, who showed that time-orientation is a fundamental property of all natural systems (physical, chemical, biological and social) and that the “natural tendency” towards chaos by no means entails loss of harmony.

Ilya Prigogine (Russian: Илья́ Рома́нович Приго́жин) (January 25, 1917 – May 28, 2003) was a Belgian physicist and chemist noted for his work on dissipative structures, complex systems, and irreversibility.
Prigogine was born in Moscow, Russia and studied chemistry at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium.
Prigogine is known best due to his definition of dissipative structures and their role in thermodynamic systems far from equilibrium, a discovery that won him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1977.

 Obituary: Ilya Prigogine | Special Reports | EducationGuardian.co.uk
The impact of the 1977 Nobel prizewinning chemist and physicist Ilya Prigogine, who has died aged 86, stretched far beyond the realm of the physical sciences, and he came to be regarded as one of the most influential scientific thinkers of the 20th century.
Prigogine sought to challenge the rigidity of classical physics and chemistry, specifically the second law of thermodynamics, which states that in any isolated physical system order inevitably decays.
After his Nobel achievement, Prigogine's popularity in his adopted homeland was such that he was constantly recognised in the street, and no restaurant in Brussels would allow him to pay for a meal.

Although Prigogine may not be the household name as others on this list are, his pioneering work in chemistry paved the way for an entire new set of life sciences.
Prigogine's work suggested that natural systems may indeed be much more alive and conscious than the blind and mechanical machines we assume them to be.
As Prigogine entered science as a beginning chemist, he was already pegged as a bit of a rebel.

 DARWINISM-WATCH.com - Responding Evolutionist Propaganda in the Media
Ilya Prigogine is probably the most important scientist of the 20th century who tried to find a solution to this problem of the evolutionary theory.
A very recent comment from Ilya Prigogine himself, however, shows that the evolutionist impasse on the origin of life is still very deep.
We hope that this frank explanation from Prigogine himself may help evolutionists to get rid of their dogmatism and see nature as it is: There is no known laws, mechanisms or properties of matter which can explain the origin of life and its complexity.

 Darwinism Refuted.com
The studies in the physical field by the determinedly materialist Prigogine also had the intention of providing support for the theory of evolution, because, as we have seen in the preceding pages, the theory of evolution is in clear conflict with the entropy principle, i.e., the second law of thermodynamics.
Despite the fact that Prigogine did not manage to find a way to support evolution, the mere fact that he took initiatives of this sort was enough for the evolutionists to accord him the very greatest respect.
Prigogine's imaginary theories and concepts have nevertheless convinced many people who do not know much about the subject that evolution has resolved the dilemma of thermodynamics, whereas even Prigogine himself has accepted that the theories he has produced for the molecular level do not apply to living systems-for instance, a living cell:

Prigogine: What we have shown now is that for elementary atoms or molecules when you take into account the excited state or save a particle, you come again to the same, you come to units which are no longer independent.
Prigogine: Yes, because you see: the town is participating in the life of the country.

Ilya Prigogine, winner of the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1977, died in Brussels last May. He was a lifelong promoter of European science and, to his mind, Europe always included his native Russia.
Prigogine, who published a number of notable works with the philosopher of science Isabelle Stengers(3), never paid attention to disciplinary barriers.
Prigogine sheds light on the dynamic of unstable systems and their importance, whereas physics had traditionally concentrated on stability.

But without Ilya Prigogine, we would be even further from an understanding of the issues involved, and of the nature of time.
And Prigogine, further, understood that the question is much wider than "mere" physics, but has implications for understanding such diverse fields as insect societies, the theory of car traffic, and even human behavior.
The essence of the reconciliation proposed by Prigogine is the recognition that almost all natural and living systems in our world are far from equilibrium, and that the arrow of time is the tendency of such systems to approach equilibrium.
