Abstract

We need a science of complex systems that can underpin attempts to design, plan, engineer and manage systems for "desirable" outcomes. A great problem is that conventional scientific approcaches cannot be applied to many of the pressing problems faced by politicians, planners and social administrators. Even when there is agreement on the goals, there may be disagreement on how to achieve them.
