The Spring Journal
The science of chaos and complexity are now tipping us into a major paradigm shift in our worldview – the way in which we view the organisational principles of the universe.
This edition of the journal offers much food for thought and heartfelt reflection on the interplay between chaos and creativity. It features Caroline Smith’s piece, Embracing Chaos and Complexity for a Saner World; an exercise in wonder about the Mystery at the heart of chaos and how our understanding of this makes for good education.
