Description:

Language: English . Brand New Book. Systems theorists see common principles in the structure and operation of systems of all kinds and sizes. They promote an interdisciplinary science adapted for a universal application with a common language and area of concepts. In order to solve problems, make recommendations and predict the future, they use theories, models and concepts from the vast area of general systems theory. This approach is chosen as a means to overcome the fragmentation of knowledge and the isolation of the specialist but also to find new approaches to problems created by earlier solution of problems. This revised and updated second edition of General Systems Theory - Ideas and Applications includes new systems theories and a new chapter on self-organization and evolution. The book summarizes most of the fields of systems theory and its application systems science in one volume. It provides a quick and readable reference guide for future learning containing both general theories and practical applications without the use of complicated mathematics. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Systems theorists see common principles in the structure and operation of systems of all kinds and sizes. They promote an interdisciplinary science adapted for a universal application with a common language and area of concepts. In order to solve problems, make recommendations and predict the future, they use theories, models and concepts from the vast area of general systems theory. This approach is chosen as a means to overcome the fragmentation of knowledge and the isolation of the specialist but also to find new approaches to problems created by earlier 'solution of problems.' This revised and updated second edition of General Systems Theory - Ideas and Applications includes new systems theories and a new chapter on self-organization and evolution. The book summarizes most of the fields of systems theory and its application systems science in one volume. It provides a quick and readable reference guide for future learning containing both general theories and practical applications without the use of complicated mathematics.

Review: Reviews of the First Edition:
"For beginners, the book is an easy introduction to systems science; for others, it is a useful overview, supplemented with many interesting and thought provoking personal commentaries by the author." --Professor George Klir, Binghamton University-SUNY

"It is impossible not to be impressed by the author's enthusiasm and crusading spirit in stressing the need for the systems approach." --Professor Alex Andrew, KYBERNETES, The International Journal of Systems and Cybernetics
