Peter Allen has kindly agreed to attend and will be happy to answer questions.
Complexity theory, with its roots in physics and biology, has long been applied to the human world, particularly in the field of economics, but also to management, political theory, strategy and policy-making.
Building on the recently published book, Embracing Complexity, Jean will discuss the implications of applying natural science theories to social systems and explore some practical and sometimes surprising perspectives.
*Tea and coffee will be available before the talk from 6:30pm and there will be a reception with wine and canapés to follow, ending around 8.30pm.
This talk will be of interest to those – scientist or non-scientist – engaging with the complexity of the social world.
Membership of the IOP is not required and there is no registration fee.
