How Can the Study of Complexity Transform Our Understanding of the World?

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

In 1894, the physicist and Nobel laureate Albert Michelson declared that science was almost finished; the human race was within a hair’s breadth of understanding everything:

It seems probable that most of the grand underlying principles have now been firmly established and that further advances are to be sought chiefly in the rigorous application of these principles to all the phenomena which come under our notice.

Bold and heady predictions like this often seem destined to topple, and, to be sure, the world of physics was soon shaken by the revolutions of relativity and quantum mechanics.

But as the 20th century unfolded, it turned out to be the phenomena closest to our own human scale— biology, social science, economics, politics, among others—that have most notably eluded explanation by any grand principles.  The deeper we dig into the workings of ourselves and our society, the more unexpected complexity we find.  Fittingly, it was in the 20th century that science began to bridge disciplinary boundaries in order to search for principles of complexity itself.
