What is complexity?

Focus: Philosophy of Science

The complexity is one of the most remarkable features of the modern world. It can be characterized, maybe, as some lack of cognitive apprehension. But can the complexity itself be correctly apprehended by intelligence? In this course, I intend to answer this question by giving a very simple definition of complexity by using Aristotelian notions and explain what makes something complex. For instance, why Physics and Mathematics are so complicated?
