About the Tutorial:

Introducing the first offering from Complexity Explorer in Spanish: a talk focused on philosophy of science in which SFI Professor Miguel Fuentes examines the concept of epistemological emergence through the lens of complexity science.

About the Instructor(s):

Miguel Fuentes seeks to understand the behavior of Complex Systems from a fundamental-conceptual point of view, focusing on anomalies that are often important ingredients for the emergence of new emerging characteristics. He works in interdisciplinary research, from mathematical physics, with a focus on statistical mechanics, nonlinear dynamics, and the use of information theory and complexity measures to characterize and understand complex behaviors in closely related systems. Another important aspect of his research is the epistemological study of complex systems. This study focuses on the analysis of the evolution of scientific theories and the dynamics of innovations.

Miguel Fuentes holds a Ph.D. in Physics from Instituto Balseiro, Argentina, and also a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Science from the National University of La Plata, Argentina. He has worked and studied at places such as the Pierre et Marie Curie University, the Institut Non-Linéaire de Nice, the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Santa Fe Institute.
