About this product
- DescriptionThis study applies the findings of the new nlinear sciences to understanding the processes of growing complexity and intensifying chaos in the modern world. It also identifies and reviews approaches for living and coping with these trends. Uri Merry seeks to clarify the role of chaos in the transformation of the social sciences to new orders by re-examining and re-evaluating some of the basic tenets of modern social and behavioral science in light of theories of chaos, self-organization, and complexity. Divided into three sections, the work provides an overview of the major findings of the new science of chaos; analyzes why chaos is on the upsurge and why human society is experiencing such anxiety about it; and surveys some of the major approaches for dealing with chaos in society, organizations, and our personal lives.
- Author BiographyUri Merry holds a PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he has taught in the Graduate School of Education. He is the author or coauthor of 4 books, including Organizational Transformation (Praeger, 1986).
