Complexity Studies: Interdisciplinarity in Action
Modern complexity studies and their interdisciplinary character are under consideration in this article. The conceptual framework of complexity studies includes such methodologically significant notions as nonlinearity, self-organization, creative chaos, co-evolution and blow-up regimes. It is argued that interdisciplinarity corresponding to a holistic worldview becomes a powerful trend in modern science. At the same time, evolutionary holism constitutes a philosophical basis for complexity studies. The possible future developments of complexity studies as a fundamental interdisciplinary paradigm are discussed as well. It is shown that interdisciplinary research will define the character of science in the medium-term future.
