Emergence: emergence is an expression for the appearance of new properties in a composition of elements that these elements do not have in themselves. In the philosophy of mind there is, for example, the view that the mind emerges from the brain. Opposite positions argue that the properties in question can be explained by a more detailed description of the interplay of the elements on the lower level and thus already exist. See also consciousness, identity theory, materialism, physicalism, self-organization, systems.
