complexity of cooperation. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press.
Robert Axelrod is widely known for his groundbreaking work in game theory and complexity
theory. He is a leader in applying computer modeling to social science problems. His book
'The Evolution of Cooperation' has been hailed as a seminal contribution and has been
translated into eight languages since its initial publication. The 'Complexity of
Cooperation' is a sequel to that landmark book. It collects seven essays, originally
published in a broad range of journals, and adds an extensive new introduction to the
collection, along with new prefaces to each essay and a useful new appendix of additional
resources. Written in Axelrod's acclaimed, accessible style, this collection serves as an
introductory text on complexity theory and computer modeling in the social sciences and as
an overview of the current state of the art in the field.

web of life: A new scientific understanding of living systems. New York: Anchor Books.
During the past twenty-five years, scientists have challenged conventional views of
evolution and the organization of living systems and have developed new theories with
revolutionary philosophical and social implications. Fritjof Capra has been at the
forefront of this revolution. In The Web of Life, Capra offers a brilliant
synthesis of such recent scientific breakthroughs as the theory of complexity, Gaia
theory, chaos theory, and other explanations of the properties of organisms, social
systems, and ecosystems. Capra's surprising findings stand in stark contrast to accepted
paradigms of mechanism and Darwinism and provide an extraordinary new foundation for
ecological policies that will allow us to build and sustain communities without
diminishing the opportunities for future generations.

home in the universe: The search for laws of self-organization and complexity. New
York: Oxford University Press.
According to MacArthur fellow Kauffman (Santa Fe Institute), "[T]he order of the
biological world...is not merely tinkered, but arises naturally and spontaneously because
of underlying principles of self- organization." These principles may be employed to
analyze all manner of highly-involved patterns, from molecular biology, the rise and fall
of corporations, to the intricate workings of government. Kauffman outlines the
characteristics and potential uses of complexity, simply delineating its meaning for the
future of scientific thought. For general readers.

thinking: The new science of fuzzy logic. New York: Hyperion.
Fuzzy logic is a science and way of thinking which challenges ordinary mental habits and
provides a changing, flowing world view which challenges cut and dry mental processes.
Bart Kosko is a leader in the fuzzy logic way of thinking: his is an excellent and lively
presentation which is even more compelling in audio form.

systems view of the world: A holistic vision for our time (Advances in systems theory,
complexity, and the human sciences). Cresskill, NJ: Hampton Press.
The book begins contrasting the systems view of the world, based on integration an
understanding of relationships, with the atomistic view of the world, based on
decomposition and understanding of parts. He proceeds presenting the concept of system,
leading the reader through a series of distinctions and examples.
Life at the edge of chaos (2nd ed.). Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
Complexity theory holds that at the root of all complex systems lie a few simple rules
that will yield a grand unification of the life sciences. Lewin personalizes a dramatic
story of scientific discovery that includes explorations by such diverse scientists as
Stephen Jay Gould, Edward O. Wilson, and James Lovelock.

life lessons of chaos: Timeless wisdom from the science of change. New York:
Briggs and Peat, whose Turbulent Mirror (1990) is one of the best popular books on
the science of chaos (Briggs also wrote the lavish Fractals (1992) on chaos art),
now gives us a book that introduces the major ideas of chaos and shows how they can be
used metaphorically. For instance, sensitive dependence upon initial conditions, or the
butterfly effect, is the phenomenon of a tiny action, when amplified throughout a system,
having unexpectedly disproportionate effects. (It is called butterfly after the chaos
theory canard that a butterfly flapping its wings in China can cause a thunderstorm or
hurricane in New York.) Apply this to politics, say, and apparently small initiatives can
produce enormous changes. Briggs and Peat are careful to differentiate between scientific
fact and metaphor, unlike some popular but often inaccurate self-help writers. The
combination of factual exactitude and imaginative application makes this the best book on

a unified ecology (Complexity in ecological systems series). New York: Columbia
The authors present a conceptual framework for a more coherent view of ecology,
showing how to link the various parts of ecology into a natural whole. Although abstract,
the analysis is anchored in practice, emphasizing examples of what ecologists do and why
they do it. For practicing and aspiring research ecologists and population biologists, as
well as those in the management of wildlife and forests.

for teaching in a diverse society: Instructional models. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth
This book focuses on a variety of ways to teach content material to students of all ages.
The teaching models are ones that entail both direct and indirect teacher control of the
learning material. In some cases teachers want students to construct their own schema, and
in other instances the teacher wants students to acquire content understandings in a
specific form...a form dictated by the teacher. This text shows teachers a variety of ways
to communicate content and includes lots of theoretical knowledge and practical examples.

soul at work: Listen...respond...let go: Embracing complexity science for business success.
New York: Simon & Schuster.
The Soul at Work brings to businesspeople a new and powerful way of thinking
about and working in the new economy, one that draws on the new science of complexity,
which recognizes that business organizations are complex adaptive systems. The great
contribution of prize-winning author Roger Lewin and developmental psychologist Birute
Regine is to ground this science in organizational dynamics, in the interactions of
people, and to show how leaders who embrace the principles of complexity science are
developing highly innovative and adaptable organizations that are more likely to be
successful in traditional financial bottom-line terms. Most important, as the old
command-and-control style of management is relinquished in favor of a broader sharing of
leadership, people in these organizations experience a greater sense of commitment to
their work and to themselves in an atmosphere of genuine relationships and mutual respect.
The authors explain how these transforming ideas are creating a more human-oriented and
successful workplace, as revealed in the stories of a dozen actual companies of very
different types and sizes.

psychological meaning of chaos: Translating theory into practice. Washington, DC:
American Psychological Association.
The purpose of this book is to introduce mental health practitioners to the concepts of
nonlinear dynamic systems theory that have become so important in the natural and physical
sciences. In non-technical language, authors from various perspectives explain the meaning
of chaos, complexity and self-organization for psychological practice. All of the authors
share the belief that the perspective may well revolutionize the way we practice.

Twenty-seven scholars discuss how the ecological theory and research of the
developmentalist Urie Bronfenbrenner (Cornell U.) led them to focus their own work on
problems crucial to "real life"--the rapidly changing world that often
challenges researchers to design inquiries in dramatically new ways. Intended for students
looking for an introduction to the theoretical approaches to ecological courses, and for
established scholars interested in multilevel approaches to human development. Presented
in five parts: the dynamics of individual development; historical and social time; the
multiple contexts of human development; the importance of process; and reflections and new

Insights from complexity science for health care leaders. Irving, TX: VHA, Inc.
Complexity science reframes our view of many systems that are only partially understood by
traditional scientific methods. Systems as apparently diverse as stock markets, human
bodies, forest ecosystems, manufacturing businesses, immune systems, termite colonies and
hospitals seem to share some patterns of behavior. These patterns provide insights into
sustainability, viability, health and innovation. This book examines how leaders and
managers in health care organizations are beginning to use complexity science to discover
new ways of working.
