Since the consequences of attempting to understand any complex system will itself install the inquiry within a complex problem space, the notion of application does not inherently indicate the transposition of complexity science or the rhetoric surrounding complexity into a domain to which it does not belong. While this has historically been a cultural motivation (haphazardly in business, management, and militarization…), we instead understand application as indicative of the generative feedback established between the abstract and complex problem space and the concrete complexity of the world.
