Abstract

Viable systems are coherent social organisations that are able to survive. Part of their survival process involves anticipation that is embedded in their logical models. The development of viable systems often occurs despite their inability to develop common patterns of knowledge for their world view holders. This has means that new anticipatory processes must be activated, when their viability may be endangered

Keywords: Viable systems, anticipatory systems, social organisation, Knowledge, Logical Process
