This paper tries to show how important and useful is the alternative theoretical framework based on complexity theory in economic geography. The topic of this study “complexity and economic geography” is intended to become the one discussed by Slovak geographers. First, some generic concepts and properties of a complex system are introduced. Subsequently, the problem linked by various interpretation of complexity in social science is solved. More attention is given to the new economy and economic geography, where the old and the new economies are distinguished in sense of “complexity economics”. The aim of this paper is also to introduce some relevant physical concepts and metaphors, which may have a sufficient explanatory power to clarify evolution of the socio-economic environment.
