Another common misstep in leadership studies is to solely consider the experiences and views of followers.

Philippe Vallat's insight:
The best definition of leadership ever: "Leadership is about stepping into the unknown, and creating conditions that don’t yet exist. Leaders envision a better future for their people that they (the people) don’t often initially recognize or understand. As a consequence, a leader faces huge resistance along the way. Leadership is not a popularity contest. If anything, it might be the opposite."

Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman

Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Two fine authors, Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett, have written recent books, The God Delusion and Breaking the Spell arguing against religion. Their views are based on contemporary science. But the largest convictions of contemporary science remain based on reductionism.

I would like to begin a discussion about the first glimmerings of a new scientific world view — beyond reductionism to emergence and radical creativity in the biosphere and human world. This emerging view finds a natural scientific place for value and ethics, and places us as co-creators of the enormous web of emerging complexity that is the evolving biosphere and human economics and culture. In this scientific world view, we can ask: Is it more astonishing that a God created all that exists in six days, or that the natural processes of the creative universe have yielded galaxies, chemistry, life, agency, meaning, value, consciousness, culture without a Creator. In my mind and heart, the overwhelming answer is that the truth as best we know it, that all arose with no Creator agent, all on its wondrous own, is so awesome and stunning that it is God enough for me and I hope much of humankind.

Bernard Ryefield's curator insight, July 30, 2013 4:15 AM

Science is always advancing (and putting itself in question), just too slowly for some; give it time (and efforts). The article is presenting some of the most interesting questions in brain science, some of them having huge implication: what if there is no free will ? In that case, better have philosophical arguments ready to answer this question: what we collectively do of it (just think about the judicial system) ?

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 9, 2013 7:42 AM

Neuroscientists cannot explain how incoming sensations get routed around such that they can be translated into subjective impressions like taste, color, or pain. Or how we can conjure a mental image in our minds on demand.

Disruptive Thinkers: Developing a Disruptive Mindset

Before you can be Disruptive, you must embrace a Disruptive mindset. This is one of those things that takes concerted effort and time. It also is not a widespread trait in general society. Yet even the most iconoclast of us can think in this manner if we truly want to.

Agility, Powered By Mindfulness | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Ever have one of those days when everything seems to go your way? From the time you wake up in the morning until you retire at night it seems that the world is behind you – you are in full sync with the events and people in your life. You are focused, sharp and alert. You move with purpose; your actions are crisp and exact; when you speak you are clear, succinct and convincing. Your hearing is acute and you process new inputs rapidly and respond appropriately, quickly and with ease. Everything seems more vivid and alive.
