Abstract

Attempts to axiomatize and formalize system complexity all leave a feeling of basic incompleteness and a sense of failure to grasp important aspects of the problem. This paper examines some of the root causes of these failures and outlines a framework for the consideration of complexity as an implicate, rather than explicate, property of systems in interaction.
