Complexity

This course presents an overview for social scientists of recent theories and models of self-organization and emergence. These theories, associated with the Santa Fe Institute, have been developed for the most part in the physical and biological sciences. The course will explore, largely through discussion, the relevance of these theories for the social sciences.
