“What is the Origin of Systems Thinking?” A talk by Robert K. Logan on 4th July 2018 at BCSSS

We are looking forward to the next step of the BCSSS Project on the Origins of Systems Thinking initiated by the BCSSS Research Group Emergent Systems, Information and Society.

We would like to invite you to participate at a talk by Robert K. Logan at the BCSSS on 4th July 2018 entitled “What is the Origin of Systems Thinking and Who Were the First Systems Thinkers?”

“We explore the origin of systems thinking that predates the work of Ludwig von Bertalanffy who explicitly defined it through his formulation of General Systems Thinking. We explore the roots of systems thinking that pre-date Bertalanffy in the emergence of verbal language, tool making and the organized activities of hunter gatherers, agriculturalists and industrialists. We discuss the role of information overload in the formulation of systems thinking. We also compare systemic versus systematic thinking.” (Robert K. Logan)
