Ludwig van Bertalanffy

In [the] contrast between wholeness and sum lies the tragical tension in any biological, psychological, and sociological evolution. Progress is only possible by passing from a state of undifferentiated wholeness to differentiation of parts…Every evolution, by unfolding some potentiality, nips in the bud many other possibilities.

Ludwig von Bertalanffy, General Systems Theory
