Abstract

A famous Latin saying states: senatores boni viri, senatus mala bestia (senators are good men, but the Senate is a bad beast). In general terms, this means that the coexistence of single entities of a given kind may give rise to a very different sort of whole which cannot be explained by or limited to, the ‘qualities’ of its components considered individually.
