The study of complex systems and the question concerning the philosophy of knowledge

Abstract
This paper explores the meaning and possibility of a theory of knowledge vis-a-vis the non linear complex systems. The thesis hereafter defended is that knowledge of complex systems has to do more with possibilities than with factual reality. Therefore, knowledge is characterized by incompletness, incomputability and randomness, and so computer acquires a relevant role in the study of complex systems. Towards the end, the place and the very complexity of human beings as a complex problem is considered.
