Investigations on the Influence of the Global System of Instrumental Civilization on the Global Economy and the Mathematical Approach for Soft Systems Analysis and Evaluation

  • Wiktor H. Adamkiewicz


In the scale of the whole globe exists a large system as a whole. It may have the designation “The System of Instrumental Civilization” — SIC (Adamkiewicz, 1983; 1995c). One may think that this great universal technical system has a great impact on all the people irrespectively of various divisions which exist among people’s groups. It seems that at present, at the end of the 20th century, this impact on people’s mentality and their behaviour is not smaller than the impact of gravitation, or also the necessity to use atmospheric oxygen in the process of breathing.
