What is Complexity? in the face of Complication and Chaos. Complexity in formal, mathematical, scientific, examinable, experiential, phenomenological, historical, political, postmodern, and all other types of ways.
The guiding metaphor here is ecological networks. Living systems that function through their interdependence, networked relationships among functional parts, and a dynamism of emergence that is not reducible. The science of the last few hundred years may necessarily have been reductionistic (breaking complexity down into manageably simple parts in order to make sense of it) but the science that is emerging will equally strongly require holism in order to make sense of the interwoven patterns that arise as global systemic behaviors.
