In this first chapter we give a brief overview of the historical origins of the relatively young field in science called Artificial Life. We also try to give the reader an idea of the controversial understandings of Natural Life and the comparatively straightforward definition of Artificial Life. In the third part of this chapter we introduce the main methodology used in Artificial Life “the synthetic approach” which can be briefly explained by the phrase “understanding by building”.
