Book of the Day: Relational Reality

See on Scoop.itScience and Sanity

What do you get when you cross systems science with complexity and chaos (butterfly effect)? Complex adaptive systems.

 

“Relational Reality reveals the coherence among numerous surprising discoveries of the interrelated nature of reality. … All our basic assumptions (built on the old idea that everything in the physical world is essentially separate and functions mechanistically) are being reconsidered. No longer a marginal perspective, the Relational Shift is based on the realization that all entities in this world, including humans, are thoroughly relational beings of great complexity who are both composed of and nested within networks of creative, dynamic interrelationships. Nothing exists outside of those relationships. As we try to grasp the interrelated nature of reality, emergent relational approaches are already transforming the way we educate our children, attend to our health, green our communities, and rethink economic activity. New analyses of the crises of modernity and abundant new solutions are the result.”
