Complexity and Postmodernism: Understanding Complex Systems
ISBN It has long been theorized that the rules and equations that govern scientific processes and physical models could also pertain to complex, philosophical structures. One of the interesting notions of the postmodern school of thought is that there is the possibility to get away from traditional notions of order and morality, a way to escape structured thought.
Complexity, on the other hand, deals with the notion that all the parts of a system are indelibly tied to each other, preventing the system from collapse. He starts by approaching the world of complex systems the way a computer scientist would approach a algorithm. There are rule sets and patterns, and most things fall inside those two buckets to varying degrees.
To that process, he adds a layer of postmodern thought that allows for a richer, relativistic understanding of complex systems.
The more I think about the world today, the more this system of thought seems to work. Many of the forces in our world are interconnected in a large complex system. World economies, social forces, religious theology, and many other structures have both internal complexity and fit inside a large framework.

Waldrop, M. New York: Simon and Schuster, This volume offers one of the earliest broad takes on complexity, focusing on researchers at the Santa Fe Institute, established in to conduct multidisciplinary research on complex systems, particularly in physics, biology, and economics. This work is in the popular science vein, and as such focuses on personalities and probably gives too much credit to the Sante Fe Institute for launching complexity science but is nonetheless an important introduction to complexity.
