World Complexity Science Academy Book Series
The WCSA book series is devoted to sociological works that are based upon Complexity and Systemic theories.
The series reflects the conviction of WCSA that, in these turbulent times, Complexity theories are the best scientific tools to seize the incertitude and the ignorance that affect both social scientist and social actors in their everyday lives.
The series welcomes books that consist of either epistemological works or researches on specific subjects. The epistemic works will boost the recently neglected debate on the nature and the potentialities of Complexity theories. Furthermore, through this series WCSA aims to valorize Luhmann’s scientific legacy and continue his epistemic and sociological work.
The researches will be both theoretical and empirical, and will analyze specific social phenomena through the complex and systemic tools.
WCSA book series will aim to publish between 3-5 books each year.
