Snippets – An essay on complex adaptive systems

Via Scoop.itLa brecha de la complejidad

Complexity science is not a single theory. It is a combination of various theories and concepts from a variety of disciplines—biology, anthropology, economy, sociology, management and others that studies complex adaptive systems (CAS). All three terms in the name CAS are significant in the definition of a CAS: 1.- Complex implies diversity, many connections among a wide variety of elements. 2.- Adaptive suggests the capacity to alter or change, the ability to learn from experience. 3.- A system is a set of connected or interdependent things. From this definition, it is possible to approach organizations, communities and societies as complex adaptive systems.   Image- Complex-adaptive-system.jpg (Wikipedia Commons)
