Section Overview

The section extends Theorymaker to include emergent Variables, open (editable) systems and unpredictable interventions. A bewildering array of different, wicked, things start to happen - from chaos to complexity - as soon as we are just a little more relaxed about what counts as a Rule. As Rules are at the heart not only of Theories but also of Reporting, Wickedness can affect Evaluation in two ways: because the project Theories themselves may be wicked, and also because the reporting Rules we use to evaluate them may be wicked.

This will be perhaps the most substantial section of this book, but so far there is nothing to see here at the website.
