Franco F. Orsucci, "Human Dynamics: A Complexity Science Open Handbook"
English | ISBN: 1634840542 | 2016 | 302 pages | PDF | 38 MB
This is probably the first multi authored open handbook of complexity science in human dynamics and psychotherapy, beyond determinism and reductionism. Its multiplicity, plurality, and polysemy reflect the true nature of the field by ensuring appropriate degrees of freedom for clients, therapists, scientists, scholars, students, and multidisciplinary readers.
This book, though mostly focused on psychotherapy and its evolution in the perspective of complexity science, shows how this is just a special case for a general theory of human change. The book also presents how, through the use of the complexity science toolbox, a general model of psychotherapy is gradually emerging. This special meta - model for psychotherapy can be extended to a general model of human dynamics.
This open handbook is a work in motion, partially leaving some of its constituents opportunities for future evolutions. In this open work, there is a reflection of the intrinsic complexity of the human dynamics field and a refusal of the epistemological violence of linearization. We invite you to use it as a toolbox where you can find tools and inspirations to facilitate the self - organization of other human beings, and your own.
We designed it to be a companion for human change explorers of the 21st century. A demonstration of this plural epistemology is that the authors represented in this open handbook come from different human sciences and psychotherapy milieus, use different methodologies, but share the same deep theory. They form new meta - praxis, meta - theory, and meta - models towards a new shape of human change.
