The Controversy over Specialism: From Ortega to Morin - Stages on a Journey toward Complexity

World Futures 62 (5):361-391 (2006)

This problem is stressed by the reflections of philosophers and scientists such as Ortega y Gasset, Erwin Chargaff, Werner Heisenberg, Konrad Lorenz, Karl Popper, Paul Feyerabend, and Edgar Morin.
