A New Kind of Social Science: Study of Self-organization of Human Dynamics

Front Cover
Lulu.com, 2003 - 184 pages
This book introduces a new kind of social inquiry centered in exploration of the self-organizing nature of human dynamics. By studying the ways self-organization manifests: its origin and characteristics, its stimulators and impediments, catalysts and inhibitors, factors which support, sustain, impede, or block its inward and outward realizations, the author reveals new challenging insights which remain hidden if one continues to study society as an object of research separated from the unique and fathomless richness of the whirling complexity of individual dynamics. The author links the study of social complexity with his original research into uncertainty inherent in human knowing and learning. This makes the book equally attractive and valuable as a comprehensive theoretical and practical guide into the exciting dimensions of a new kind of social science for researchers and students in the field of social complexity, management, psychology and philosophy.
