- We can order this
This book deals with the contribution of a systems approach to a range of disciplines from philosophy and biology to social theory and management. It weaves together material from some of the pre-eminent thinkers of the day. In doing so it creates a coherent path from 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.

From the reviews:
"This book provides a thorough evaluation of the philosophy of systems, ending up with an introduction to multimethodology and its application in real situations. ... The style of the book is uncompromisingly academic with full referencing ... and relevant quotations. ... is targeted at the academic community and will serve this audience well, most especially those undertaking research degrees with a heavy bias towards non-physical science areas of interest. ... It does provide a good academic foundation for multimethodology applications." (Jane Holland, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 59, 2008)
