List of types of systems theory
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. The systems theories nowadays are closer to the traditional specialisation than to holism, by interdependencies and mutual division by mutually-different specialists.

Glossary of systems theory A glossary of terms as relating to systems theory.[1] A[edit] B[edit] C[edit] Learning Political Economy This is an experimental set of eight Resource blogs, that together with a dialogical and collaborative Service platform, are part of the infrastructure of the Learning Change Project to support and empower a community of change agents on Systemic Change. The Project is the product of a collective action-learning research agenda on society, culture, critical thinking, creativity, innovation, self-organization, rhizomes, networks, systems, complexity, sustainability and futures. The blogs reflect our interest for bottom-up sustainable self-organized communities and systems. The Project is a not-for-profit, free and open initiative.

RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials.

Why the Failure of Systems Thinking Should Inform the Future of Design Thinking "You never learn by doing something right ‘cause you already know how to do it. You only learn from making mistakes and correcting them." Russell Ackoff Design and "design thinking" is gaining recognition as an important integrative concept in management practice and education. But it will fail to have a lasting impact, unless we learn from the mistakes of earlier, related ideas.

This goal of developing anew worldview was largely lost in the initial applications of GST, which were grounded in a moremechanistic, instrumental perspective, and seemed to promise the ability to control and predict moreaccurately and efficiently.GST has not proved to be the single unifying breakthrough approach that von Bertalanffy envisioned. Insome circles, GST is still viewed with suspicion as fundamentally scientistic. As a backlash against positivistsocial science, a substantial strain of Òhuman scienceÓ and postmodern thinking has come to reject anyattempt to apply perspectives and insights drawn from the natural sciences to the study of human beings,and systems approaches have for many years been held up as the worst offenders. The more philosophical,social constructionist management and organization theory discourse has also generally shied away fromreferring to systems concepts. Further Readings
