商品描述

媒体推荐

A Crude Look at the Whole is a delightful tour of the core principles of complex systems. You will see the world differently, and more clearly, after reading this erudite and wondrous romp.”
—Michael J. Mauboussin, Head of Global Financial Strategies, Credit Suisse

“Well-written, interesting, and stimulating. This book shows us how individual elements—bees, traders, neurons—interact to produce ‘endless forms most beautiful.' John Miller makes complexity seem simple.”
—W. Brian Arthur, author of Complexity and the Economy and recipient of the Lagrange Prize in Complexity Science.

“The “sciences of complexity” crystalized about thirty years ago, partially at the Santa Fe Institute. John Miller was the first postdoctoral fellow at SFI. His A Crude Look at the Whole is a superb “look”. Miller's range is synoptic. More, the topics are essential for the world of today. Read this book.”
—Stuart Kauffman, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, emeritus professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania and author of At Home In the Universe

“[A Crude Look at the Whole is a] succinct, elegant study of systems thinking, the newish science examining basic principles, such as emergence, that govern physics, biology and economics. Miller reveals compelling echoes between apparently unrelated phenomena, such as “hivemind” behaviour in bee colonies and consumers, or responses to local stimuli in how a cone snail patterns its shell and how a market functions.”
Nature

“Miller's whirlwind tour is…well-grounded; he stresses complexity theory as an approach and a complementary way of thinking, not as a cure-all.”
Slate

“Miller…provide[s] a thought-provoking introduction to the study of complexity.”
Publishers Weekly

“Miller offers a vigorous survey of the tools, techniques, and ideas underlying complex systems and their study.”
Kirkus Reviews

“From economic instability, to climate change, to the deep failure of our political process, most of the big challenges to society today are manifestations of complex systems, not tractable to analysis by traditional reductionist approaches. Miller's book is a fine introduction to complex systems thinking in the context of social systems.”
—Jim Rutt, past Chairman of the Santa Fe Institute and Director of the Proteus Foundation


PRAISE FOR A CRUDE LOOK AT THE WHOLE

A Crude Look at the Whole presents most of the starter-level examples of complexity. Social insects are an illustration crucial to Miller's economic focus. He gives an engaging account of how the simple behaviour of individual ants produces something that looks a bit like intelligence in the nest as a whole.”
New Scientist

“Mr. Miller, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, argues that complexity science—the study of the phenomena that emerge unpredictably from components that function as a whole—is providing insights to help businesses, scientific and political leaders recognize how interconnected their spheres are and how to manage them when they go unexpectedly awry…In a promising area involving complexity science, Mr. Miller describes his work with researchers at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to find novel and effective chemotherapy cocktails.”
Wall Street Journal
