GLARIA, Violeta. Questionings to the teaching of economics from a complex perspective. Polis [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.25, pp.165-181. ISSN 0718-6568.

From a complex perspective, the mains assumptions and the reasoning of Neoclassical Economy (that is what is being taught in Chile when Economics is taught) are questioned, for example, the concept of emergence: "Everything is more and less that the additions of the parts" (Morin, 1981), so societies are not just the sum of individuals. Knowledge is incomplete, there is not total information. Contexts are decisive to understand. The domains of knowledge are not isolated, emerge the need of transdisciplinarity. Since Gödel's theorem mathematical demonstration do not assure veracity of the results or the absence of subjectivity (besides there are complexities that are not reducible to mathematical knowledge, like human behavior). Is necessary to over think the comprehensions of traditional economics and to design new curses of economics that include other topics, methodologies and epistemological reflections, because, given the complexity of our times, and the important decisions that are being taking in the name of Economy, we can't have professionals that understand in a reductionism way the economical phenomena.

Palabras clave : complexity; emergence; economy and education.
