Speakman and Sharpley (2012) later proposed a number of weaknesses that ultimately compromise the suitability of contemporary tourism crisis management models in general and suggested complexity theory
as an alternative framework for managing tourism crises.
Kline also strangely ignores cybernetics' closest spiritual successor, complexity theory
, which echoes cybernetics' interdisciplinary audacity as well as its sometimes-frustrating vagueness.
From complexity theory
we review the contributions from Lorenz (1963), Thom (1977), Nicolis and Prigogine (2007), Prigogine and Stengers (2002), Bonabeau, Dorigo, and Theraulaz (1999), Watts (2006); from complex adaptive systems we take insights from Gell-Mann (1994, 1995) and Holland (1992, 1995, 1998); and we follow Ashby (1962, 1964), Von Foerster (1981) and Beer (1981, 1988) from the cybernetics tradition.
evolved from different disciplines: mathematics, physics, biology, life science, economics, organizational science, and computational intelligence in the middle of twentieth century, and later offered its insights to other disciplines .
Developments in post-quantum complexity theory
, within both the physical and social sciences, will enable us to re-ground social democratic arguments and state them in a more plausible way for the twenty-first century.
Psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist Coburn applies complexity theory
to psychoanalysis, especially to the clinical attitudes that arise from psychoanalytic complexity, and how this changes emotional lives and their corresponding relationships and might inform different ways of thinking and working clinically.
In this article, we describe a research platform for initial teacher education, developed by the Project RITE (Rethinking Initial Teacher Education) (1) research team, which combines key ideas from complexity theory
