The subject is of great interest to me because I'm thinking of complexity. The truth is that....I'm in love with complexity...:)

"Morin is a representative thinker of humanity’s planetary age. In remedying the deficiency of  Westernclassic analytic thinking, Morin's complex thinking shows some affinities to the Chinese classic synthetic thinking, such as the emphasis on the union of the universal and the particular. Morin path indicates that the creation of the paradigm of complexity depends on the fusion of  Western and Eastern thinking, each of which has its strength and weakness."
 Yi-zhuang Chen—Professor of Philosophy, Central-South University, People’s Republic of China
"What I like best in the work of Edgar Morin is the fundamental difference he makes between what is complex and what is just complicated. The real world is complex, meaning that antagonism and complementarity go hand in hand. Once I understood this, and other aspects of Morin's paradigmof complexity, my research took a new turn."
Peter Westbroek—Professor of Geophysiology, University of Leiden, The Netherlands
