RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3630Goal: $5000

Talk:Systems thinking

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Very negative description of System's thinking, very one sided, and not really very clear what "systems thinking is". As a non-philosopher, I had to read this article twice, then go to wiki to understand "systems thinking". The wiki article is much more clear, but more importantly, shows systems thinking is an important way to see the world. I'd like to make some changes, but I'd like to recruit someone who actually knows what this is, to look them over?

Perhaps. I think it's because it's focused entirely on politics I'm not sure it gets the message across well. Sure, some of those applications may well be invalid but that doesn't therefore imply "systems thinking" is wrong. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 16:09, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
I assume that business, religion, and engineering qualify as "politics" for the purposes of that statement? Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 18:51, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
Well, the section on engineering is a joke. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 19:06, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
