Complexity and transdisciplinarity - Discontinuity, levels of Reality and the Hidden Third

Cilliers P. ; Nicolescu B. (2012)


In this paper some insights gained from contemporary theories of Complexity are used to illuminate several aspects of a theory of Transdisciplinarity and vice versa. These aspects include the notions of discontinuity, levels of Reality and the Hidden Third, which are all central components of the transdisciplinary framework. The mutual influence of these two fields on each other opens up further possibilities for research. This paper aims to explore these possibilities in more detail. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
