Systems theory is the interdisciplinary study of systems in general, with the goal of elucidating principles that can be applied to all types of systems at all nesting levels in all fields of research. [ citation needed ] The term does not yet have a well-established, precise meaning, but systems theory can reasonably be considered a specialization of systems thinking , a generalization of systems science , a systems approach. The term originates from Bertalanffy 's general system theory (GST) and is used in later efforts in other fields, such as the action theory of Talcott Parsons [ 1 ] and the social systems theory of Niklas Luhmann .

This list of types of systems theory gives an overview of different types of systems theory , which are mentioned in scientific book titles or articles. [ 1 ] The following more than 40 types of systems theory are all explicitly named systems theory and represent a unique conceptual framework in a specific field of science . Systems theory has been formalized since the 1950s, and a long set of specialized systems theories and cybernetics exist. In the beginnings, General Systems Theory was developed by Ludwig von Bertalanffy to overcome the over-specialisation of the modern times and as a worldview using holism .
