Home/Integrative Levels

An integrative level is a pattern of organization emerging on pre-existing phenomena of a lower level. The concept of integrative levels is used to describe how synergies and emergence give rise to successively higher levels of organization. More complex higher level phenomena are seen to be constituted by lower level more elementary parts with each level coming to have its own internal properties, dynamics, and processes.
