It would interest me to know what people think of the application of
Chaos theory to anthropology. Is it not just another physics theory
which could explain culture through normative equations? (albeit, i'm not a
physicist and am not sure if one could call chaos a normative theory).

In particular, I am wondering if anyone has read REALITY RULES by Casti.
This book apparently uses chaos theory to predict wars, presidential
assainations etc. I was hoping someone else could tell me if it was
worth the read.
