The hugely assorted brokers in play will not be simply cognitive and/or cultural, but additionally emotional and behavioural of their specificity. certainly, the hassle may well require development a theoretical and methodological physique of data that could successfully exhibit the attribute houses of phenomena in human terms.

New complexity methods let us reconsider our constrained and mechanistic photographs of human societies and create extra acceptable emo-cognitive dynamic and holistic types. we need to input into discussion with the complexity perspectives popping out of different extra ‘material’ sciences, yet we additionally have to take steps within the linguistic and psycho-sociological fields in the direction of developing views and ideas greater suited for human characteristics.

Our realizing of complexity is various – yet now not adverse – to the one who is mostly present in texts written by way of humans operating in physics or machine technological know-how, for instance. The aim of this e-book is to increase the data of those different extra ‘human’ or socially orientated views on complexity, taking account of the language and conversation singularities of human brokers in society.

Sample text

And I am too: I am outside and within you. But, despite being highly scientific, we have viewed the world in recent centuries through a fragmented, partitioned gaze that can uncover the interpenetrations and interweavings of reality only with difficulty. We were unable to think our way toward creating new images of self-co-construction and interdependence of reality. But this, after all, is exactly where we need to be headed, if we are to understand human linguistic and cognitive phenomena, which have properties that are not the same as the properties of matter.

An essential characterisation of such groups, particularly in the smallest ones, is the high degree of internal interaction that sustains them and the norms that emerge over time and become established as the collective’s own norms and, therefore, as expectations that must be followed by members of the collective or that, if established customs and ideas are not adhered to, may trigger sanctioning mechanisms. Social groups or networks fulfil the intrinsic needs of individuals for emotional connection and solidarity, and this gives them a degree of influence that should not be underestimated.

Certainly, the most commonly used labels need to be reviewed and given their due complexity – in a word, complexified. This is probably because they do not bring us sufficiently close to the reality that is there. Therefore, the challenge is to understand the phenomena that emerge from the multitude of existing human beings. A clear example is our current economic crisis. The problem is not only understanding it, but also in some sense controlling what we have collectively built, which is slipping out of our grasp and out of the grasp of social agents.
