Pengertian dari dan untuk ketakmengertian: Social Complexity sebagai cara pandang baru dalam memahami fenomena sosial
[Understanding from and to the inability to understand: Social Complexity as a new perspective to understand social phenomena]
AbstractThe paper discusses the utilization of social complexity studies to enhance our understanding on many social phenomena. The discussions brings the concept of uncertainty in almost everything of social realms and makes some points related to the empirical findings of the power-law distributions in some particular cases. The paper concludes with some light discussions on the utilization of particular computational techniques to grasp the structural complexity that is observed in social life.
