Summary note:
The human body is often seen as a paradigmatic example of a complex system, where there are particular constraints on assessing and predicting the outcomes of an input into the system. In this paper we look at the constraints on assessing and predicting the outcomes of inputs into the body politic through an understanding of the human body.
