Today, we have to learn to differentiate and to distinguish, without having to separate. In this sense, there are two clearly distinguishable concepts and not because of it, segregated: on the one hand, the concept of complexity in the "sciences of the complexity", and on the other, the concept of complexity in the complex thought of Edgar Morín. When Morín speaks of the complex thought to refer to complexity, he is not originally referring to what the "sciences of the complexity" understand for complexity, but what probably does not fit in them, to the condition of humanity in the planetary era: to the Humana Conditio. Morín is in agreement with the "sciences of the complexity", that we need to rethink reality as a complex totality, that is, as a whole that is woven in common, because everything is interrelated, everything is deeply "inter-fecundated". But at the same time, he invites us to think that totality, without excluding from it the one who thinks it. Because of it, the complex thought in Morín's perspective, seeks to understand the "subject" that knows in a complex way, and installs the "subject" (humanity) as an epiphenomenon of that complexity. In this sense, Morín -as we know- sees himself as a humanist thinker and as a humanist thinker seeks strategies to face the challenges of humanity in the planetary era: anthropolitics and the politics of civilization.
