A glossary of terms dealing with complexity is available on J.N. Warfield's site about Understanding
Complexity; Thought and Behavior (http://www.isss.org/members/papers/WPOCcontents.htm#anchor3341443).|
Warfield's work was one of the books listed in a previous ontology summit post on relevant work.
He does, for example, attempt a definition of the psychology experience of complexity - when things are judged hard which had a glancing mention in the ontology summit chat session.
"Complexity is that sensation experienced in the human mind when, in observing or considering a system, frustration arises from lack of comprehension of what is being explored. While this definition may be thought surprising, one of its notable attributes is that it allows for the possibility that complexity may be reduced or even eliminated, at least for some human beings, by a process called "learning". " p20.
