Why?

Science is an inquiry into the world around us based on empirical data and the development of models/theories to describe the patterns we find in this data. The beginning of the modern era, a proximally five hundred years ago, saw the development of a systematic and coherent framework for conducting this scientific process. This framework became clearly formulated with the work of Sir Isaac Newton, Newtonian physics became an example or paradigm of how modern science should be conducted. However this approach has its limitations when dealing with complexity, in this context, complexity science is a new approach or method to science that has arisen over the past few decades to present an alternative paradigm to our standard method of scientific enquiry. 

New Approach

This is where complexity science tries to add another dimension to the mainstream scientific paradigm. Through such concepts as emergence and self-organization complexity science includes the possibility of qualitative levels, where new parameters are defined, essentially tipping points or phase changes within the development of a system beyond which different rules define its makeup, such as the transition from inorganic molecules to living cells where the order that defines biological systems is not simply an extension or derivative of the laws of physics. Many more examples of these irreducible phase changes existing within neuroscience and the social sciences.
