Welcome to Homeostasis Press!
We're glad you came we've got some great reading for you. Some of it's here on the site, some of it's in the books we're offering for sale.
This site is the brainchild of Ted Merrill (right), the physician/ fisherman/ ecologist/ philosopher/ woodcarver who wrote (or co-wrote) two of the books and some of the text you'll find here.
What you'll find here
This site is about writing and thinking, and also about writing about thinking. Ted (who passed away in February 2013) thought a lot (his brain was his favorite organ), and after writing his thoughts passionately on various bits of paper for most of his life, he finally retired from medical practice, acquired a computer, and began writing in earnest. His brother Bill (who passed away in October 2010) was also avidly involved in thinking and writing, and often their thinkings and writings converged and complemented each other.

This site comprises five sections, each represented by one of the cards at left and described below:

What is homeostasis? offers Ted Merrill's view of an ever-evolving concept, the namesake of this publishing company and this site. As a philosopher, ecologist, and biologist, Ted offers a new, broader definition along with a concrete example of its evolution.
