Abstract (english):

This paper presents a sort of phenomenology of complexity-theoretic reasons for rethinking the philosophical understanding of “firstness”. Many of these reasons are well known in systems theory, mathematics, physics and other natural sciences but are - to my knowledge - not yet widely considered in the discipline where the quest for “the first” origins - in philosophy. The paper thus is meant as an invitation to philosophers to consider “firstness” from the perspective of complexity research.
