Summary

General systems theory is a set of related definitions, assumptions, and propositions which deal with reality as an integrated hierarchy of organizations of matter and energy. In this paper, the author defines the concepts of space, time, matter, energy, and information in terms of their meaning in general systems theory. He defines a system as a set of interacting units with relationships among them and discusses several kinds of systems. The concepts of structure, process, type, level, echelon, suprasystem, and subsystem are also defined and discussed. Throughout the paper the emphasis is on the applications of these concepts to living systems. (JY)
