Evolutionary theory formulated in terms of complex systems dynamics shows interesting convergences with the approaches of developmental systems theory and biosemiotics, especially when applied to the problem of the origin of life. Although starting from difference conceptual assumptions, all three approaches agree on the importance of closure in the form of semipermeable chemical and informational boundaries and a more circumscribed role for DNA.
