We believe that systems thinking should have a strong philosophical foundation. We are not philosophers but nevertheless we invite comment on the questions we raise below. The views we express are strongly influenced by Aristotle, Plato, David Hume, Immanuel Kant, Martin Heideggar, Karl Popper, John Dewey, Thomas Kuhn and Nancy Cartwright.
In other words what can we say about what is ‘out there’ in reality?
How do we find meaning?
How do we respond to what is there?
Why do we do what we do?
