Study Group

Who is our study group?

This group of colleagues debate their own disciplines with each other in the context of a theoretical framework of systems science, with an emphasis on viable or self-organizing systems. They pay attention to physics, with its conservations of energy, mass, and momentum, to chemistry, with its making and breaking of bonds, and to general ‘input-output’ schemes. Emergence within each field is a topic that is currently being discussed.
