For the past several years, Dr. Corning has served as the director of the non-profit Institute for the Study of Complex Systems and as a founding partner of a private consulting firm in Palo Alto California.  He has published numerous research papers and articles over the years, as well as five books including Holistic Darwinism: Synergy, Cybernetics, and the Bioeconomics of Evolution.
