Abstract

Spanish abstract: Examinamos la manera en que el concepto mítico de creación a partir de la nada se convirtió en una noción filosóficamente respetable en filosofía natural, y en la base de un paradigma científico para la investigación cosmológica, principalmente a través de la filosofía evolucionista de Herbert Spencer y su análisis de la multiplicación de los efectos. También se proporciona así una genealogía conceptual del conocido 'efecto mariposa'.

English abstract: An examination of the way the mythical concept of creation out of nothing became a philosophically respectable notion in natural philosophy, and the basis for a scientific cosmological paradigm, mainly through the evolutionary philosophy of Herbert Spencer and his analysis of the multiplication of effects. This also amounts to providing a conceptual genealogy of the well-known 'butterfly effect'.
