The distribution of actions J), plays a privileged role. In this representation the Liouville equation is transformed into a coupled set of equations for the Fourier components. These equations are naturally interpreted as describing the coupled evolution of the correlations, consisting of creations, transformations, and destructions of correlations in time. This new language of dynamics of correlations replaces the traditional language of mechanics in terms of motion of a point along a trajectory.

Nowadays the humanistic sciences can adopt new models: instability, chaos, etc. ’’ Prigogine often uses this rhetorical procedure: a big, shocking statement, followed (at a distance) by precise explanations that put back the problem on its natural level. 7); this is a mind-catching phrase that may produce a feeling of uneasiness, or may be completely misunderstood. One could ask oneself: ‘‘What is going on here? Are we witnessing a surrender of Science? ’’ But if one carefully reads the book, he will quickly understand that a quite rational reality is hidden behind this rhetorical statement.

The problem appears when one tries to find a model representing the reality. 1, p. ) a fact that faces every theoretical physicist. ’’ He accepts this simplifying representation in order to construct his theory, hoping that it keeps the essential elements for the understanding of the phenomenon that is studied. Experiment will validate (or invalidate) in fine the chosen model. ’’ Thus, Prigogine and Petrosky (PP) introduced the model of a ‘‘Large Poincare´ system’’ (LPS). As stated above, the latter is, in fact, a large system, to which the operation of ‘‘Thermodynamic limit’’ is applied.
