For the love of references! If the submitted posts didn't all have references for support, they do now, because host of the 50th CoE edition, Marc Srour, has provided them himself.

Chapter 2 of Luisi’s 2006 book, The Emergence of Life, has an excellent overview of the definitions of life.Unfortunately, the preview on Amazon does not include the relevant pagers (page 21-23). If you happen to have those in electronic format, please let me know.
Marc comments on every single post, and I think this is an excellent idea. Who says CoE shouldn't be a place where the merit of individual posts are discussed? Anyone?
