Some of the Systems Methodologies

  • Lars Skyttner
Part of the Information Systems Series book series (INSYS)


Systems science has assumed as its primary responsibility the task of handling real-world, large-scale, intertwined problems of complex systems. It is applied with the assumption that these problems are of a certain similarity, regardless of the system they have originated from. The systemic view therefore includes a special attention to the threat of technological ‘fixes’ and pervasive side-effects of the far more common mega-technology which is invading society. Also, the emergent properties, possessed by the system but not by its parts, are extensively involved.
