Whole Evolutions, Where Systemic Yoyos Come from

  • Jeffrey Yi-Lin ForrestEmail author
Part of the IFSR International Series in Systems Science and Systems Engineering book series (IFSR, volume 32)


After introducing the brief history of the concept of systems and the systemic yoyo model in the previous chapter, this chapter looks at the theoretical foundation on why such an intuitive model of general systems holds for each and every system that is either tangible or imaginable.
