"Science generally proceeds in a reductive manner, the thinking being
that by breaking
down complicated phenomena into its figurative (or literal) atomic
parts one gains
predictive and explanatory power. The problem with reductionism,
however, is that it
is often difficult to put the pieces back together again."
I was trying to relate this to what we do with complex information. We
also follow the scientists way by breaking down the information into
parts (reductionism) and then build correlations of these parts to
each other and (try to) present the user a "organized system".
I feel the systems (or application in our context) fail when we can
not put these pieces together.
So I would like to know, have you experienced the problem of putting
these pieces back together again?
Has anyone found a good solution to this problem?
