Nonlinearity: The History and Philosophy of the Science
Burke, Kenneth M.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Biennial Qualitative Research Conference: Generations in Qualitative Research (7th, St. Lous, MO, Feb 6-7, 2009)
This article provides for a concise history of nonlinearity from the context of the changing assumptions in science throughout the turn of the twentieth century. Concerned with the development of an ethics of technology in higher education, it establishes a background for ongoing research on quantitative methods in the social sciences. The history expands knowledge of the philosophy of nonlinear science and complex systems.
