Disappointed by the lack of uptake in the utilisation of Health Outcomes into routine day-to-day medical practice, Dr Price was confronted by the objection that as these measures were patients’ responses to questions – they were “subjective” and therefore not good science. Medicine, said the doctors, was based in science, which was objective. This made no sense to Dr Price, who considered himself an advocate for scientific medicine. He vowed to find the science that would prove that “Outcomes Medicine” was not only based on good science but the latest science. This led him on a journey from Systems Theory to Quantum Mechanics, to Dissipative Structures, to Einstein and e = mc2. He read about fractals, Mandelbrot, and the work of the world-famous Santa Fe Institute set up by “particle physics” Nobel Prize Winner, Murray Gell-Mann, which developed the latest science – Complexity Science. Dr Price concluded that the human body is a Complex Adaptive System (CAS) and realised that there was an additional in-between “state of matter” between solid and fluid. This, he called “SOPHTID”, the mnemonic for (S)Second (O)Order (PH)Phase (T)Transition (ID)Identity, a state which enables fractals and power laws to come about or emerge. Dr Price further contended this was a “functional” state that not only was consistent with Health Outcomes “functional” measurements, but enabled information generation and with the aid of the solid and fluid parts of the cell, information processing or cognition. Dr Price’s hypothesis on the SOPHTID state has now been supported by Longo & Montévil in their 2014 book, Perspectives on Organisms, where they call this “SOPHTID state”, Extended Critically. Thus, with this scientific backing, “Outcomes Medicine” is now best called “Complexity Medicine”, and is backed by the latest science. It enables a new form of Digitised Medicine that will revolutionise healthcare improving Health Outcomes and drastically reducing costs.

Standardwerk über die modernen Naturwissenschaften Naturwissenschaft ist cool, lustvoll und sehr aufregend. Die renommierte Wissenschaftsjournalistin ist überzeugt, dass es Spaß macht, die Sprache unseres Körpers zu verstehen, etwas vom Kleinsten und vom Größten zu wissen oder sich das gewaltige Heizkraftwerk Erde unter unseren Füßen vorstellen zu können. Wissenschaft ist keine Festung aus Fakten, sondern ein dynamischer Prozess, gespeist aus Neugier und Entdeckerfreude. Menschen mit naturwissenschaftlichem Basiswissen begreifen unseren Alltag besser und können genauere Fragen stellen, z. B. zu Klimawandel oder Gentechnik. Das Buch lädt ein zu einer kurzweiligen Tour durch die abenteuerliche Welt des Wissens: leicht verständlich, amüsant und spannend wie ein Krimi.

«‹Vineland› ist vermutlich das zugänglichste Buch, das der große Unbekannte je geschrieben hat. Der Roman beginnt mit dem Sprung durch eine Fensterscheibe und zerbirst danach wie sie in Myriaden glitzernder Scherben. Aber am Ende, wie in einem Film, der rückwärtsläuft, springen die Splitter vom Boden hoch und fügen sich auf wunderbare Weise zu einem Ganzen.» (Salman Rushdie)

The concept of “chaos”, and chaos theory, though it is a field of study specifically in the field of mathematics with applications in physics, engineering, economics, management, and education, has also recently taken root in the social sciences. As a method of analyzing the way in which the digital age has connected society more than ever, chaos and complexity theory serves as a tactic to tie world events and cope with the information overload that is associated with heightened social connectivity. The Handbook of Research on Chaos and Complexity Theory in the Social Sciences explores the theories of chaos and complexity as applied to a variety of disciplines including political science, organizational and management science, economics, and education. Presenting diverse research-based perspectives on mathematical patterns in the world system, this publication is an essential reference source for scholars, researchers, mathematicians, social theorists, and graduate-level students in a variety of disciplines.

Goethe Chaos And Complexity

The present volume is the first to address the interrelationship between Goethe's scientific thought and work, his ideas on art and literary oeuvre, and chaos and complexity theories. The eleven studies assembled in it treat one or more elements or aspects of this interrelationship, ranging from basic concepts all the way to a model of an aesthetic-scientific methodology. In the process, the authors scrutinize chaos and complexity both as motif and motor of literary texts and nature within various contexts of past and present. The volume should be of interest to literary scholars, scientists, and philosophers of science, indeed, to all those who are interested in the continuities between the humanities and sciences, culture and nature.
