Snippets - An essay on complex adaptive systems | APRENDIZAJE SOCIAL ABIERTO | Scoop.it

Complexity science is not a single theory. It is a combination of various theories and concepts from a variety of disciplines—biology, anthropology, economy, sociology, management and others that studies complex adaptive systems (CAS).

All three terms in the name CAS are significant in the definition of a CAS:

1.- Complex implies diversity, many connections among a wide variety of elements.

2.- Adaptive suggests the capacity to alter or change, the ability to learn from experience.

3.- A system is a set of connected or interdependent things. From this definition, it is possible to approach organizations, communities and societies as complex adaptive systems.
