Although critiques of current epidemiologic methods frequently invoke concepts derived from a complexity framework, applications of these approaches to epidemiologic problems are scarce. Broader application awaits both conceptual and methodological development. This chapter describes the broad outlines of this approach to explore and envision its potential for psychiatric epidemiologic research. It also draws attention to some nascent examples on the horizon.
