Stephen Hawking’s advice for twenty-first century grads: Embrace complexity

 A few years ago, Hawking was asked what he thought of the common opinion that the twentieth century was that of biology and the twenty-first century would be that of physics. Hawking replied that in his opinion the twenty-first century would be the “century of complexity”. That remark probably holds more useful advice for contemporary students than they realize since it points to at least two skills which are going to be essential for new college grads in the age of complexity: statistics and data visualization.

Chinese Thinking and Complexity | Synthesis

Chinese Thinking and Complexity | Synthesis | Innovation, complexity and stuff | Scoop.it

This link between Daoism and Complexity theory adds credence to the idea that the Chinese mind is conducive to a Complexity approach to whole systems. 

 

I will conclude by coming firmly off the fence: if the Chinese (as a nation and as a race) master Complexity theory in their business, economic and political lives then they will make a true “great leap forward”.  It is tempting to paint a picture of China as communist, autocratic, non-democratic, etc.  This is not necessarily wrong but as a civilisation, communism has been just a recent blip.  How people cognitively frame things is very deeply rooted and Complexity theory looks like a technical and intellectual counterpart to how they think already, broadly speaking.
