This volume contains the papers presented at the International Symposium on "Synergetics - From Microscopic to Macroscopic Order", held at the Wissenschafts kolleg z~ Berlin (Institute for Advanced Study Berlin), on July 4-8, 1983. Further more, it contains a contribution of T. Ohta, who unfortunately could not partici pate in this meeting, on the evolution of mUltigene families. The papers discuss the evolution and the function of ordered structures from small microscopic scales up to large macroscopic dimensions. On the one hand, these structures derive from physical or biological systems; on the other hand, they also affect economic, sociological and philosophical questions. I would like to thank the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin for the extraordinary support and hospitality during my one year's stay there as a fellow, which made the planning, preparation and organization of this symposium possible. I would also like to acknowledge the work of B. Fritsch and D. Dorner who actively participated in this undertaking. I am grateful to Professor Haken, the founder of synergetics, whose participation in the planning and styling of the concept of the conference was essential. I am especially thankful to Mrs. U. Monigatti for her indefatigable help with the prep aration and organization of the conference. The financial support was provided by the "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft". Berlin, November 1983 E.
