Summary
"Realising Systems Thinking weaves together material from some of the preeminent thinkers of the day - Maturana, Varela, Bateson, Merleau-Ponty, Checkland, Giddens, Habermas, Bhaskar, and Luhmann - to create a coherent path from the most fundamental work on philosophical issues of ontology and epistemology, through specific domains of knowledge about the nature of information and meaning, human communication, and social intervention, right up to the implications of these theoretical developments for action and intervention in real-world affairs."--Jacket
