The following are quotes by Prigogine:

“Thermodynamic equilibrium may be characterized by the minimum of the Helmholtz free energy defined usually by: . Are most types of ‘organisations’ around us of this nature? It is enough to ask such a question to see that the answer is negative. Obviously in a town, in a living system, we have a quite different type of functional order. To obtain a thermodynamic theory for this type of structure we have to show that that non-equilibrium may be a source of order. Irreversible processes may lead to a new type of dynamic states of matter which I have called ‘dissipative structures’.”
— Ilya Prigogine (1977), “Time, Structure and Fluctuations” [1]
