Before the advent of quantum mechanics in the early 20th century, most scientists believed that it should be possible to predict the behavior of any object in the universe simply by understanding the behavior of its constituent parts. For instance, if one could write down the equations of motion for every atom in a system, it should be possible to solve those equations (with the aid of a sufficiently large computing device) and make accurate predictions about that system’s future.

來自EMERGENT PHENOMENA IN SCIENCE AND EVERYDAY LIFE的熱門評論
Could have been more mathematical. And could have included a section on space-time, since it's been a while that the notion of emergent space-time has entered the theoretical discussions.
Good sampler course for those curious about emergent patterns across a variety of fields. Casual and fun, although the focus on peer graded assessments somewhat detract from it.
i enjoyed all the different modules. I recommend they add more explanation to the chaos game assignment.
It's a good course to get acquainted with first hand information about studies in emergent phenomena
