The Use of Complexity Science... A Report of the U.S. Department of Education, October 2003.

"The challenges of the 21st century will require new ways of thinking about and understanding the complex, interconnected and rapidly changing world in which we live and work. And the new field of complexity science is providing the insights we need to push our thinking in new directions."
