Epistemology reflects the unique characteristics of the system of notion about the social cycle. The epistemological community transformation can also make a difference in systematic qualities. For this purpose, the focus is on the systematic position, function, and behavior of the modern information philosophy to reproduce the system. The only response that information contained within the hierarchical social, economic, and moral world can bring to the solution of existing problems is the change of power ownership. If modern science can grasp the complex universe as a regular system, it can build up working systems. Modern science sees the complexity as the exception of the basic characteristic of the universe. Complexity Science understands this exception as the general behavior of the universe in its simplest form. The chaotic awareness theory is the most obvious and most effective set of this claim. The chaotic awareness theory questioned the restructuring of the epistemic field in pursuit of an assertion in this respect. This study attempts to exemplify the possibilities of chaotic awareness theory in the paradigm of complexity science.
