Evolutionary search, network structures and diversity

Part of a series on drawing on system and complexity science to do evaluation. My initial interest in the relevance of evolutionary theory was specifically in a field known as evolutionary epistemology. In its simplest form, this views the evolutionary process as a type of learning process, one involving the selective acquisition and retention of information, happening at multiple levels of scale.
