Ontological Emergence

Home/Ontological Emergence

Ontology refers to the nature of being, it is concerned with what we consider the objective being of things in the world around us. Ontological emergence is a statement that emergence is a fundamental part of our universe, irrespective of our understand of it. It means a full understanding of a system in terms of its components is not possible in theory, not just because of practical constraints, but because new and fundamentally irreducible levels of organization appear at higher levels.
