All day


This event is private.

This virtual SFI Symposium focused on the acute symptoms resulting from the decline of multiple, coupled complex systems, as well as the longer-term transformations stemming from our current crises. Specific domains of inquiry included the transformations in: market, global climate, disease and treatment, cities, and belief dynamics. The intellectual underpinning of this meeting is largely based on a recent publication by David Krakauer and Geoffrey West (here).
