Dear Editors: Complex Systems Edit
This article on Complex Systems is quite good, but it doesn't mention homeostasis as a key example of a complex system. And it doesn't mention Gregory Bateson's contributions to integrating complex systems theory into scientific thinking. Lawrence Bale's article: GB, Cybernetics and the Social/Behavioral Sciences is an excellent discussion of the contrasting paradigms of science. Unfortunately, my understanding of complex systems like ecosystems and homeostasis is non-verbal; I wouldn't try to describe them in scientific terminology, so I'm just adding mention of them as a suggestion of what more can be done. Also, the Quote from Steven Strogatz is less a description and more a criticism; I think listing it as a Quote leads to confusion. --Margaret9mary 22:16, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
P.S. Just checked the history--and found this article has remained without further editing for a few years. Hello, again, Dr. Kiff. --Margaret9mary 22:21, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
