About Systems Philosophy

Ervin Laszlo 1972

Systems Philosophy formally originated in 1972 as the philosophical component of General Systemology (then called "General Systems Theory").  However the activities representing it have a long history going back to the beginnings of Western philosophy in the 7th century BCE, and its scope has broadened in the last half century  to encompass broader interests and alternative perspectives to those of the founders of General Systemology and Systems Philosophy.


In this section we present an overview of the nature, scope, development and literature of Systems Philosophy.
