A general systems theory of knowledge: Application to family and ecology

By the concept of a system we mean an organic set of extensive interrelationships generated between agents, variables and the relations among variables of the set (Capra, 1982). The same system then interacts with other similar systems. No interaction is possible in an optimal and steadystate condition of methodological individualism or, even, in a limited case of methodological individualism.
