-SYSTEMS THEORY/​SCIENCE/​THINKING/​APPROACH/​METHODOLOGY is a transdisciplinary and multiperspective scientific inquiry that studies structure and properties in terms of their interrelationships. Ervin Laszlo contrasts the system model with the Classical science model of reductionism as a shifting of emphasis from parts to the organization of parts; from the "​component to the dynamic"​ as he puts it. Erich Jantsch writes, "Quite generally, a system becomes observable and definable through its interactions. ​<ref>Jantsch E (1980) The Self-Organizing-Universe. Pergamon Press</​ref> ​They emphasize that it is through these mutually interactive relationships that new properties of the whole emerge. Bela H Banathy regards this observation to be the "​value"​ of systems theory; as this new whole has properties which are not found in the constituent elements. "We cannot understand the whole bit by bit" he explains.[1] ​<!--(See Note 1:) --> +SYSTEMS THEORY/​SCIENCE/​THINKING/​APPROACH/​METHODOLOGY is a transdisciplinary and multiperspective scientific inquiry that studies structure and properties in terms of their interrelationships.
