Thought-Piece: Comparing Recursive Organizational Dynamics to Spiral Dynamics

There are remarkable correlations and convergences between Recursive Organizational Dynamics (ROD) and traditional Spiral Dynamics (SD). Both systems describe the world and relationships in terms of eight core modalities. Although their social applications often have a different focus, and they each use their own idiosyncratic jargon, they nonetheless explain their stages in essentially the same […]

Research Focus: The Role Of International Standards On Higher Education: A Case Study Of Albania

While Albania has in place the key structures of the education system, the past educational legislation and reforms were not sufficient to fully develop the institutions of higher education. The attempts to establish premium-quality universities and research institutions were continued with the New Law on Higher Education. However, the standards in higher education, particularly in terms of scientific research, are still not on a sufficiently high level; the country itself is facing serious social and economic challenges, and research programs are both small in scope and regionally fragmented.

Dr. Schinckus Publishes With The Journal of Interdiscipinary Economics On Hayek And Econophysics

F. Hayek is known as an economist and a political philosopher who provided a specific social theory based on the idea of spontaneous order. This order state comes from a process that Hayek called ‘catallaxy’and that results from a particular phenomenon of emergence. In this context, social systems such as money, market or language are presented as spontaneous orders, resulting from a particular evolutionary process of society. Although Hayek is well known to be an opponent of importation of physical concepts into economics, this article proposes a parallel between the Hayekian theory and a new field called ‘econophysics’. More precisely, I will show how the way of characterizing the phenomenon of emergence by econophysicists might, to some extent, be an analytical characterization of the Hayekian emergence. This claim will be explained and illustrated with the presentation of econophysical works describing money and language as a spontaneous order taking the form of a power law. The last section will discuss the debates about the methodological relevance to associate Hayek’s theory with an area of knowledge coming from physics and the potential\economic implications of such a rapprochement.
