Network Theory

  1. 1. Newtonian theory: Predictable (timeless, universal) mechanisms of control, causes force effects Field theory: unseen “presences” - gravity, magnetism, electricity. Attraction - magnetism, charisma. Chaos theory : unpredictability Complexity/Systems theory: living systems - patterns without predictability Emergence theory: coherent and innovative community behavior Network theory: integrates previous theories
  2. 2. Robust Networks:
  3. 3. Robust Networks: •Relationships are the key reality
  4. 4. Robust Networks: •Relationships are the key reality They make use of mechanisms
  5. 5. Robust Networks: •Relationships are the key reality They make use of mechanisms They create a field, and happen in fields
  6. 6. Robust Networks: •Relationships are the key reality They make use of mechanisms They create a field, and happen in fields They embrace chaos
  7. 7. Robust Networks: •Relationships are the key reality They make use of mechanisms They create a field, and happen in fields They embrace chaos They participate in systems
  8. 8. Robust Networks: •Relationships are the key reality They make use of mechanisms They create a field, and happen in fields They embrace chaos They participate in systems They lead to the emergence of new realities
