Thinking complexity, thinking as synthesis

Cinta de Moebio 54:313-324 (2015)

After a number of general considerations, without meaning in any sense a reductionist approach, this paper argues in favour of the mathematics of discrete systems and of the non-classical logics, and claims that a complex thinking both entails and crosses through those domains. Such a proposal, it is argued, has not been a general concern until to-date among the communities of complexologists. At the end, several consequences are withdrawn at understanding what truly thinking about complexity is all about. Luego de varias consideraciones de orden general, y sin que se asuma en absoluto una postura reduccionista, este texto argumenta a favor de la tesis según la cual pensar la complejidad con la ciencia de punta implica considerar los modos y grados como las matemáticas de sistemas discretos y las lógicas no-clásicas contribuyen a la dilucidación de lo que es un pensar la complejidad. Estas consideraciones no han sido incorporadas en general por parte de la comunidad de complejólogos. Al final se extraen algunas de las consecuencias de lo que, consiguientemente, sea pensar la complejidad
