 +==== CREATING A BASIC TUTORIAL ON SYSTEMS AND CYBERNETICS. ====
 +
 +----
 +
 +By Charles Francois
 +
 +In various forms, such a tutorial has been developed along the last fifteen years by our Argentine Association.
 +
 +Presently, the tutorial includes two succesive modules.
 +
 +A. [[wiki: An Introductory Tutorial]]
 +
 +1. [[wiki: The sources of knowledge]]
 +
 +- [[ Physical, physiogical,​ psychological,​ and cultural limits to perception and conceptualization]]

 +
 +- [[ Whole and parts]]

 +SYSTEMIC THEORY Definition PART (B) Particular definition: Systems, from the four directions of Philosophy, Theory, Methodology and Application,​ in dynamic, multiple-causal interactive relationship,​ acting as a family, having members in a meaningful relationship acting as wholes and possessing organization as a process with aspects determined by boundaries set by the observer according to subjective and objective considerations that might be static or dynamic, with qualities or quantities that are simplicity compared relatively to complexity resulting in closed or open systems having form and function which can have emergent effects creating an evolution or devolution depending on internal or external relationships utilizing diffentiation and integration to form order out of chaoic behavior all at once over a period of time i.e., "​autopoiesis"​ (self generation)
