The main purpose of this article is to survey and analyze the paradigm of complex dynamic systems (CDSs) and the possibility of applying them in the management of social systems, because the CDS perspective is taking its maiden steps in this field, whereas it already has widespread support in physics, biology, and even philosophy.
A systematic and logical analysis of the CDS paradigm, the differences between physical, biological, social, and humanitarian systems, and the changes in the philosophy of systems are described in the paper.
This paper and the published studies reported are the first to show that the CDS paradigm is undoubtedly not a fashion but a necessity, if we are to manage social systems more efficiently.
This paper is a first attempt to analyze CDSs and the possibility of applying them in the management of social systems.
