Summary: The project aims to design the new concept of Counterplexity. Counterplexity can be considered as a theory that explains the behavior of the social systems which the payouts are lower than in the previous degree of complexity. In other words we can say that it is about the systems in which the whole is less than the sum of their parts. The theory takes advantage of the framework of the law of entropy, an approach related to the law of marginal return, the terminology of Game theory .

The theory was presented at the fifth conference on the social sciences in Osaka (Japan) and published in the proccedings: The Asian Conference on the Social Sciences
Osaka, Japan 2014, Conference Proceedings 2014, ISSN – 2186-2303, pp. 769-783.
