Traditional science focuses on understanding the individual pieces of a problem. How does a cell work? How does a neuron work? How does an individual investor behave? Tremendous strides have been made in answering these questions.The next logical step was to take knowledge about the individual components, and use that knowledge to understand the behavior of groups of components. That didn't work, but complexity theory may hold the answers. Many scientists believe that complexity theory may answer many of life's most puzzling mysteries. Complexity theory includes areas such as chaos theory, genetic programming, and fractals. William Roetzheim discusses complexity theory in an understandable manner that will appeal to all audiences. This book takes the approach of explaining concepts through the use of examples and demonstrations rather than mathematics and theory.
