* PhD Thesis: "The P2P Society as an autopoietic system: from centralized networks to distributed production of knowledge".

By Diego González.

Description

"For some time, Diego González has been researching the relationship between Complex Adaptive Systems and P2P Social Dynamics following an evolutionary approach.

His main axiom is that social systems evolve from centralized networks with homogeneous agents to distributed networks with high levels of heterogeneity. Following adaptation and selection processes, through an incrementation of differentiation and connectivity, groups of human agents evolve and define more complex and resilient societies. The equilibrium state that will emerge from current perturbations is what he has named “The P2P Society”.
