Given the global challenges of today, systems science is needed more than ever. Yet system theory is not mainstream.
The objective of the BCSSS is to inspire the development of systems science.
The BCSSS aims at the advancement of scientific research in the field of systems thinking. In particular, it revisits General System Theory (GST) as founded by Ludwig von Bertalanffy and others in order to reassess it in the light of today’s global challenges and to illuminate the course of development systems science has taken since.
The BCSSS is open to cooperation with every person or organisation supporting the same aim.
The BCSSS owns the Ludwig von Bertalanffy archive and possesses a collection of publications of the systems movement.
The BCSSS is a member of the International Federation for Systems Research IFSR, founded 1980.
