Chinese Thinking and Complexity | Synthesis

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.
