eight orientations of systems science are distinguished in my short contribution to the Primer Project, dated June 16, 2005:
I elaborate on one of these orienations. (The longer article that I refer to in the text will be made accessible on about July 5, 2005 by introducing the URL in the above mentioned text.)
I invite you to look at this approach for structuring the Primer, comment it, and write statements about selected orientations for the Primer Project.
At present, the Primer Project site contains about 50 entries, most of them transfered to the new site from old sources by Tom Mandel late in June. This is confusing for visitors of this site.
Distinguishing different orientations, but not too many, and presenting them in concise texts would facilitate interested persons access to systems science, and it could be a means to give the Primer Project some coherence.
