Deep thought

“For centuries philosophers have spoken with a forked tongue:  on the one hand they have praised and admired the free, unique individual; on the other the universal and repeatable were considered the only grounds for scientific respectability.  Dynamical systems theory’s value is that it does not zero in solely on the individual at the expense of the context or larger whole in which the individual is embedded.  Nor does it dismiss the individual and unique in favor of the general and the repeatable.  Both are given equal billing.  Many implications follow from this position.”
