Description

Excerpt from http://www.blackstarreview.com/rev-0120.html :

The analysis of complex adaptive systems, often known as complexity theory, has been an emerging trend within science for more than a decade now. The subject of numerous popular books and articles, the insights that it provides are useful tools for the analysis of all kinds of phenomena, from eco-systems to the populations dynamics of bacteria to the wild and chaotic fluctuations of stock markets and economies. In Hidden Connections, Fritjof Capra applies aspects of complexity theory, particularly the analysis of networks, to global capitalism and the state of the world.
