theory of everything


I’m a big fan of grand social theory — I don’t buy into much of it but vigorously applaud the attempts.  The natural sciences obviously has its even grander attempt at grand theory: the theory of everything.  Love the audacious attempt at parsimony, beauty, and “truth.” 

I’ll spare you my attempt to explicate the possible implications between the social and the natural in terms of the grand; for now anyway (later some wildly speculative and hopelessly erroneous posts on quantum organization theory and on what grand attempts to explain everything in the natural sciences might mean for social science and vice versa) — but meanwhile a few quick links for those interested in everything:

Update:  Here’s a half dozen past orgtheory posts by Omar on a “network theory of everything.”
