Systems, Self-Organisation and Information : An Interdisciplinary Perspective, Paperback / softback Book

Systems, Self-Organisation and Information : An Interdisciplinary Perspective Paperback / softback

Edited by Pereira Junior Alfredo, William A Pickering, Ricardo Ribeiro Gudwin


Complex system studies are a growing area of central importance to a wide range of disciplines, ranging from physics to politics and beyond.

Adopting this interdisciplinary approach, Systems, Self-Organisation and Information presents and discusses a range of ground-breaking research in complex systems theory.

Building upon foundational concepts, the volume introduces a theory of Self-Organization, providing definitions of concepts including system, structure, organization, functionality, and boundary.

Biophysical and cognitive approaches to Self-Organization are also covered, discussing the complex dynamics of living beings and the brain, and self-organized adaptation and learning in computational systems.

The convergence of Peircean philosophy with the study of Self-Organization also provides an original pathway of research, which contributes to a dialogue between pragmatism, semeiotics, complexity theory, and self-organizing systems. As one of the few interdisciplinary works on systems theory, relating Self-Organization and Information Theory, Systems, Self-Organisation and Information is an invaluable resource for researchers and postgraduate students interested in complex systems theory from related disciplines including philosophy, physics, and engineering.
