Introduction to Basic Concepts General Systems Theory by Mind Map: Introduction to Basic Concepts General Systems Theory

1. TGS is characterized by its holistic and integrated perspective , where the important are the relationships and groups that emerge from them

1.1. The original objectives of the General Systems Theory are:

1.1.1. Promote the development of a general terminology for describing the characteristics , functions and systemic behaviors

1.1.2. Developing a set of applicable to all these behaviors laws and finally

1.1.3. Promoting a (mathematical ) formalization of these laws.

2. Definitions Nominee for General Systems

2.1. Whenever we talk about systems it has given a totality whose properties are not attributable to simple addition of the properties of its parts or components.

2.2. systems as sets of elements that keep close relationships with each other

2.3. conceptual distinctions are focused on a relationship between the whole ( system) and parts (elements) . b . Prospects for systems where the conceptual distinctions focus on processes border ( system / environment). c . In the first case , the essential quality of a system is given by the interdependence of the parties compose and order behind such interdependence . In the second , the focus are the currents inputs and outputs through which a relationship between the system and its environment is established . Both of them approaches are certainly complementary.

3. Bertalanffy (1976)

3.1. talk about a philosophy of systems , as any scientific theory powerful It has metaphysical aspects . The author notes that "theory" should not be understood in its narrow sense , that is, mathematician, but the word theory is closer , in its definition , the idea of ​​Kuhn's paradigm . the distinguishes philosophy ontology systems of systems, an epistemology of systems and a philosophy of values ​​systems .

4. I was costruyo  1954 la Society for General Systems Research

4.1. a) To investigate the isomorphism of concepts, laws and models in various fields and facilitate transfers among those . b ) Development of theoretical models in areas that lack them . c ) Reduce duplication of efforts theoretical d ) Promote the unity of science through conceptual and methodological unifying principles

4.2. C.Shannon y W.Weaver)

4.2.1. This theory is related mathematical laws governing the transmission and processing of information and handles the measurement information and the representation thereof , as well as the capacity of communication systems to transmit and process information.


5.1. t refers to the area of events and conditions that influence the behavior of a system . As to complexity is concerned, a system can never be equated with the environment and to retain its identity as system. The only possible relationship between a system


6.1. It is understood to attribute the characteristics and structural or functional properties that characterize the parties or system components .


7.1. nterdisciplinario que intenta abarcar el ámbito de los procesos de control y de comunicación (retroalimentación


8.1. ( Quantitative complexity ) and , on the other potential interactions ( connectivity ) and the number of possible states that occur through these ( variety , variability


9.1. n is a conglomera


10.1. It is understood element of a system or component parts that constitute it. These may relate to objects or processes . Once they identified the elements can be arranged in a pattern.


11.1. The energy systems incorporates behaves according to the law of conservation of energy


12.1. The more or less stable relationships between the parts or components of a system
