The Complexity and Artificial Life Research Concept for Self-Organizing Systems Donella Meadows Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre. Donella H. "Dana" Meadows (Illinois - EUA, 13 de Março de 1941 - Hanover, New Hampshire - 20 de fevereiro de 2001)[1] foi uma cientista ambiental, professora e escritora co-autora do livro "Os limites do crescimento", traduzido para mais de 28 idiomas, e tendo sido um best-seller mundial, influenciando o pensamento científico e social desde então.[2] Licenciou-se em química pelo Carleton College em 1963, e em 1968 obteve o doutoramento em Biofísica pela Universidade de Harvard, tendo mais tarde entrado no MIT como investigadora, onde trabalhou em estreita colaboração com Jay W. Forrester, o criador da dinâmica de sistemas, bem como o princípio de armazenamento de dados magnéticos para computadores. Desde 1972 que lecionou na Faculdade de Dartmouth, durante 29 anos.[3] Publicações[editar | editar código-fonte] Donella H.

Systems Thinking World - SystemsWiki Downward causation In philosophy, downward causation is a causal relationship from higher levels of a system to lower-level parts of that system: for example, mental events acting to cause physical events,[1] The term was originally coined in 1974 by the philosopher and social scientist Donald T. Campbell.[2][1] See also[edit] References[edit] Further reading[edit] Campbell, Donald T. (1974) "Downward causation in hierarchically organised biological systems". Centre for Research in Social Simulation - CRESS The Centre for Research in Social Simulation (CRESS), based in the Department of Sociology in the Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences at the University of Surrey, is a multidisciplinary centre bringing together the social sciences, software engineering and agent-based computing to promote and support the use of social simulation in research in the human sciences. There is growing interest in using computer simulation to explore issues in the social sciences. Simulation is a novel research method in most parts of the social sciences, including sociology, political science, economics, anthropology, geography, archaeology and linguistics. It can also be the inspiration for new, process-oriented theories of society.
