Toward A “Science” of Systems
Papers, sections of papers, editorials, and statements that argue that systems thinking and especially only anthropocentric (humanocentric), or human-centered study of systems is weak without studying how systems over billions of years have evolve to work effectively. These papers argue that what we need most is a study of systems based on experiments conducted on natural systems.
