There are a large number of definitions and interpretations of life. The definitions presented here only serve a general bibliographic purpose as no attempt has been made to classify or discuss them. For a more extensive bibliography and discussions of various definitions of life, the reader is directed to the excellent bibliography already published (Luisi 1998, Lahav 1999, Korzeniewski 2001, Pályi et al. 2002).
