CRISIS AND CHAOS: THE NON-LINEAR DYNAMICS OF CRISIS IN SOCIETAL ORDERS
Dr. Şükrü Yazğan, from Marmara University Department of Political Science and International Relations, in his speech argued that he is developing a new conceptual-theoretical framework related to the creation, preservation and dissolution of societal orders, and explained how societal orders and the crisis affect them.
He stated that crisis situation is the actual state of existence and the creation of spatio-temporal continuities, which are called order, becomes possible by the suppression of dominant crisis state by using energy. He explained that increasing complexity of a system increases its proclivity to crisis as it strengthened the existing non-linear dynamics and that the process of globalization, which is a systemic integration process that increases the complexity of the existing order patterns, increases the predisposition of systems to crisis. He also mentioned that systemic enclosure and the crisis systematic created by multiple crisis components strengthened this proclivity and generate the crisis of the globalization.
