Course Description: This course examines complexity theory in sociology. Complexity theory in sociology has been developed since the 1990s, and now it is one of the social theories in contemporary sociology. Most of the Western sociological and philosophical theories are based on the idea of doing as the most fundamental grammar. However, recently many sociologists criticize this doing aspect and try to develop an alternative, becoming aspect. In this course, students compare and analyze aspects of doing and becoming while referring to contemporary physics, because complexity science, part of physics, is based on the language of becoming.
