This is the first book to provide an integrated perspective on the many-sided interrelationships between general systemology, translational systems science, and the wider field of systemology. It offers the reader insight into recent advances in the development of general systems theory, the general systems worldview, and general systems transdisciplinarity. General systemology is a transdiscipline that enables scientific discovery, insightful theory building, and practical innovation in all the disciplines that study, design, or employ complex systems. This book outlines the current state of the art and helps the reader to master the concepts, terminology, models, and strategies needed to make effective use of current general systems knowledge and to engage in the further development of the philosophy, science, and practice of general systemology.
General systemology is the foundational and unifying discipline of systemology, and advances in this transdiscipline bring e
nhanced power and new opportunities to all the specialized branches of systemology such as operational research, systems dynamics, management science, systems engineering, systems design, service systems science, and translational systems science. This groundbreaking book explores the potential of new advances in general systemology in such areas. It gives particular attention to how advances in general systemology can enhance the effectiveness of translational systems science by improving and enhancing both the systems perspective and the systems principles. These guide translational systems scientists as they bring theoretical insights into systemic practice and highlight practical problems to inspire new systemic research.ÃÂ
