Subject(s): CX.15, CX.17
Category: Brief Article
We discuss three approaches to a study of complexity: the reductionist stance; a search for new laws; and a search for a new aspect of reality, besides space and time. We focus on the latter, introducing the term `sense' as a candidate for such a third aspect. We point out some of the ramifications of such a move for the subject/object relationship in physics and in biology.
