In his recent book Self-Modifying Systems in Biology and Cognitive Science (1991), George Kampis has outlined a new approach to the dynamics of complex systems. The key idea is that the Church-Turing thesis applies only to simple systems. Complex biological and psychological systems, Kampis proposes, must be modeled as nonprogrammable, self-referential systems called “component-systems.”
