#CCK11: Mapping the Complexity of Knowledge

Commentary by ken427 (Ken Anderson) on link by (keith.hamon), #CCK11: Mapping the Complexity of Knowledge, Mar 03, 2011.

I am wondering about the study of complex adaptive systems, and wondering if the systems approach is sufficient. I understand the argument in CAS to be input-process-output, where output cannot be predicted due to the complexity of the process. This view of CAS suggests that inputs are external to the process. I wonder what new understandings could be reached, if inputs were considered to be part of the process, and not external to it? I have to think this through, but I wonder if anyone knows of ways to approach an understanding of CAS without a linear systems approach to them. (Hits Today: 1740 Total: 1740)
