Foresight as a Special Characteristic of Complex Social Systems
AbstractThere is a great difference between ordinary and emergent complex systems [Funtowitz, S.O. and Ravetz, J.R.: Emergent Complex Systems. Futures 26(6), 568-582, 1994]. One of main differences is the foresight ability of emergent systems. This paper shows some methodological approaches to forecast the possible future behaviours of complex social systems.
