Sociology and Modern Systems Theory

Buckley, Walter
ISBN:
9780138213305

This book is intended as an exploratory sketch of a revolutionary scientific perspective and conceptual framework as it might be applied to the soiocultural system. This point of view and still developing framework, as interpreted here, stems from the General Systems Research movement and the now closely allied fields of cybernetics and information or communication theory. The principal goal of the book is to bring to the attention of a larger number of social scientists, particularly sociologists, the wealth of principles, ideas, and insights that have already brought a higher degree of scientific order and understanding to may areas of biology, psychology, and some physical sciences, to say nothing of the applied areas of technology to which they are essential.
