Varela & Bourgine "Towards A Practice of Autonomous Systems" (review)
MIT Press, 1992.

The Proceedings from the First European Conference on Artificial Life consists of numerous exciting papers on Artificial Life related topics including philosophy, evolutionary techniques, applications etc. etc.

An excellent reference with plenty of thought provoking and original ideas. Obviously a text for the researcher or very enthusiastic amateur. Presents many ideas in fields missed to some extent by the early proceedings from Santa Fe.
