Саморефлективная синергетика

Вопросы философии. 2001. № 9. С. 99-113.
An attempt to critically analyze the claims of the theory of self-organization of complex systems (synergetics) to the interdisciplinary generalizations and the universal efficacy of its models is made in the paper. Grounds of transfer of the synergetic models of complex behavior to different disciplinary fields are under discussion. It is argued that synergetics is rather a mental scheme or a heuristic approach to exploring the complex behavior of systems, than a universal key to solving concrete scientific problems. Some prospects of development and the possible future of synergetics within the next decades are estimated. It is shown that synergetics is a kind of "ferment" or "catalyst" which doesn't replace the basic disciplines, but stimulates development of knowledge within their frames. The focus of interdisciplinary investigation may change in time, other problems and means of their investigation may turn to be in the center of attention. But the essence of such an interdisciplinary structure based on the sciences of complexity in general remains the same.
