SIG: Research to General Theories

SIG: Research Towards General Systems Theories - Chair: David Rousseau. Email:
General Systems Theories (GSTs) are needed to unify the systems sciences under common frameworks of description, analysis and explanation, and open up new routes to systems-scientific innovation. Current GSTs are still nascent, and this SIG provides a venue for developing and discussing ideas, strategies, frameworks, opportunities and challenges relevant to research towards developing and applying GSTs.
Topics include:
Refining the concepts central to general systems research, such as “system”, “isomorphy”, “mechanism”, “open-ness”, “emergence”, etc.;
Affirming or challenging the philosophical frameworks underlying contemporary general systems research;
Identifying isomorphies of systemic behaviors across kinds of concrete systems, and exposing the systemic mechanisms underlying or linking them;
Identifying general systems principles that underlie systemic isomorphies, or strategies for identifying such principles, and related work;
Discussing the limitations and potentials of GST to facilitate interdisciplinary communication, scientific discovery, and the unity of knowledge; and
The development of a transdisciplinarity grounded in GST.

Every Saturday the ISSS members meet online using iZoom in conversation on a variety of topics. 
Below is the introduction fo Research towards General Theories of Systems and Systems Philosophy presented to ISSS members.
