Bertalanffy: General System Theory -New edition

George Braziller published a new edition of Ludwig von Bertalanffy’s “General System Theory” (GST) – a collection of publications representative for the life work of the father of a new approach to the understanding of the world and of a new practice for intervening in the world. That publication is an indication for the lasting and even recently LvB-GST-coverincreased interest of the public in the foundations of GST that ushered in a paradigm shift. The Bertalanffy Center was asked to provide an up-to-date foreword.
