Systems science is fragmented, without a unifying framework of its own. Kenneth Boulding suggested that general systems theory should be the framework of science. He did not, however, provide a way to make it so, and general systems never came to play that role.
Development, as a general factor of organization, change, and becoming, was introduced as a basis for the framework of general systems science in a post to this forum on September 9, 2005.
“Origins of Self-Organization, Emergence and Cause,” presents a detailed description of the foundations of development. This work provides an introduction to the intellectual methods used by a modern generalist to achieve the breadth and depth of understanding required to use development as the unifying framework of general systems, and thereby as the unifying framework of the sciences.
