â¢Critique of the paper by Demetis and Lee on systems scienceâ¢Presents a wider view of systems scienceâ¢Presents guidelines for crafting theory in line with systems thinking
Demetis and Lee's paper outlines criteria for constructing theory in accordance with systems science. This is a laudable aim but in this comment I suggest that their view of systems thinking is both narrow and somewhat dated. Demetis and Lee equate systems science with only one aspect of it â General Systems Thinking (GST) â and they discuss in detail only one theorist â Niklas Luhmann. I draw attention to a range of other systems approaches including system dynamics, soft systems methodology, complexity theory, critical systems thinking, critical realism and multimethodology. I conclude with tentative guidelines of my own.
