    Deconstruction and complexity: a critical economy.Rika Preiser, Paul Cilliers & Oliver Human - 2013 - South African Journal of Philosophy 32 (3):261-273.
    In this paper we argue for the contribution that deconstruction can make towards an understanding of complex systems. We begin with a description of what we mean by complexity and how Derrida’s thought illustrates a sensitivity towards the problems we face when dealing with complex systems. This is especially clear in Derrida’s deconstruction of the structuralist linguistics of Ferdinand de Saussure. We compare this critique with the work of Edgar Morin, one of the foremost thinkers of contemporary complexity and argue (...)

    A Response to the Dialogical Hermeneutics of Critical Complexity Thinking in Kunneman’s Reframing of “The Political Importance of Voluntary Work”.Rika Preiser - 2016 - Foundations of Science 21 (2):439-443.
    Responding to Kunneman’s argument that the notion of ‘ethical complexity’ introduces an existential and ethical turn in the field of complexity thinking, it is argued that Kunneman’s concept of ‘diapoiesis’ corresponds to a critical interpretation of ‘complexity thinking’. By applying critical complexity thinking to the notion of voluntary work, Kunneman explores the possibility of rearticulating the notion of voluntary work outside the boundaries of the static economic paradigm of consumption and production of labor. He redefines voluntary work in terms of (...)
