Abstract

Purpose – To consider aspects of a theory of systemic construction by discussing two concepts which will assist in our understanding of the surrounding world which it is considered is made of both systemic and non-systemic entities.

Design/methodology/approach – Considers how these entities (metasystem network, transitron etc.) can be conceived and defined. Systemic frames notions are presented and examples of systems given. Discusses the historic use of the word “system” and systemic thinking and its varieties.

Findings – Discovered that on the basis of these concepts, an understanding of the surrounding world can be achieved which is not homogeneous but made of both systemic and non-systemic entities.

These can change when certain systemic properties are reached as well as in their specific degrees in their limitations and paradoxes.

Originality/value – Introduces an original approach to the life support system by proposing concepts that are discussed and defined and that will provide cyberneticians and systemists with a revised view of systemic thinking.

Keywords: Cybernetics, Systems Theory, (Non)Systemic Entities, Systemic and Metasystemic Nuclei, Historian Approach on <> Usage
