Alternative paths in social research
Study day on Complexity
Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna – Piazza Martiri della Libertà 33, Pisa
Complexity Economics puts into doubt (at least) two fundamental assumptions of neoclassical theory: the rationality of agents and the general equilibrium. The outcomes of a similar change are relevant in both a theoretical and a methodological aspect. Can complexity economics be considered as a paradigm irreducibly alternative to the mainstream economic model? This study day proposes to investigate the complex relationship between these two approaches, through an integral analysis of complex systems and creative deviations that ‘decide’ their evolution, in a debate between economists and philosophers.
