This is a great visualization of the major streams of thought in the field of complexity theory. I like the way it shows the links between the different strands, and also that ti is an interactive graphic - click on an area and be taken to the relevant Wikipedia page. From my perspective it seems that the more recent topics signal an end-game for the field. In the 2010s we see 'applied complexity', 'complexity policy & evaluation', and 'mixed methods'. Via Dave Snowdon.
