Subject: RE: 17.686 what is complexity?
Aside from Mitchell Waldrop's _Complexity: The Emerging Science at the Edge
of Order and Chaos_, which is very good introduction to the topic, I would
recommend Alicia Juarrero's _Dynamics in Action : Intentional Behaviour as a
Complex System_. (Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1999). John Holland's writings
on complexity can be a little daunting, but are also worth a read. See:
John Holland, Emergence: From Chaos to Order (Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley
Publishing Company, 1998)
John Holland, Hidden Order: How Adaptation Builds Complexity (Reading, MA:
Perseus Books, 1995)
All the best,
