Systemics of Emergence: Research and Development
ISBN: 9780387288994 / Anglický / Twarda / 2005 / 746 str. Within the General Systems Theory (GST) approach, it is possible to focus on "emergent" systemic properties (typically occurring in open, adaptive, anticipatory and chaotic systems), by stressing their specificity and their lack of reducibility into further components. In other words, emergence underlies the processes allowing the establishing of systemic properties. Research on...
