Whether complexity is a new paradigm and whether we are amidst of a complexity shift is subject to debates, not the least due to the varied conceptions of what constitutes a paradigm and what change entails. Nevertheless, if considered at a meta-theoretical level, embracing the new worldview becomes a significant departure from the established assumptions on knowledge and causality. And it offers much promise to transform not only the way we do science, or make policy, but, with time, also our discourse. The chapter maps the various dimensions of the new paradigm and explores its potential implications. How can we understand such a shift? What are its promises? are the questions it seeks to explore.
