A set of concepts that can be used for the study of some classes of situations.
M. LlU describes as follows the general characteristics of systemic and cybernetic conceptual tools:
"1) Global approach tools characterize interactions, not objects. (They refers for example to: logics, values, attitudes which specify relations between entities).
"2) Such concepts do not describe intrinsic properties of reality,… but indicates some path to characterize some concrete reality.
"3) The conceptual tools emphasize what is general and what is specific. This means that they are not destined to discover only structures, which would be invariant in whatever situations, but are also useful to discover altogether the specific traits of every situation.
"4) They are non-disciplinary and apt to characterize the results of very numerous interactions related to different aspects" (1989, p.43).
In synthesis, the systemic-cybernetic conceptual tools allow us to find new knowledge algorithms related to complex wholes.
- 1) General information
- 2) Methodology or model
- 3) Epistemology, ontology and semantics
- 4) Human sciences
- 5) Discipline oriented
