A complexidade do real: a ciência regional à procura de uma nova matriz de leitura

Maria Alice Lahorgue


This article discusses the systemic approach of the regional science. The author
stresses the necessity for the regional economists to adopt a new paradigm in order
to relate more adequately to the reality of conflictual logics that characterise the
regional space. The approach proposed here requires an effort on the comprehension
of new or revisited concepts like system, overture/closure, interdependence, autonomy,
resilience, order/disorder, development ... Finally the article warns tha much
more empiric studies and theoric analyses are needed to construct a new method that
could render the complexity of the regional space. The first steps demonstrate that it
is difficuIt but possible.
