Micro

Nomads adapt their strategies to the immediate situation. Nomads evolve in an ever changing environment. They don’t try to control their environment, they don’t attempt to domestify what is new, foreign or different.Classical economics is typically sedentary because it believes in universals and permanent laws. The paradox, the different, the irrational cannot be accounted by economic science and is thus systematically undermined or forgotten.

Nomadic microsciences in contrast do not pretend to be universal and all encompassing, they are local and situational. Urban planning, for instance, requires the use of a multiplicity of micro knowledges and information. The art of planning is to go from one dimension to the other in order to understand the context globally. (www.nomadology.com)
