Abstract: Favela residents in Brazil have been marginalized throughout their history. Nonetheless, the favela environment seems to create conditions conducive to an ontological stance that could be advantageous for engaging in complex systems. This study is a preliminary examination of people from different social backgrounds in Rio de Janeiro, both favela (working-class) and asfalto (middle-class) residents, and evaluates whether their ontological stances might present any markers for complex systems thinking potential.
