Abstract


System thinking provides a different and better way of looking at how the reality nest the life. It differ from the traditional way of looking of academic disciplines, mainly avoiding the reductionist approach to complex problems. One reason to study Systems Science is that most of the systems are human activity systems, where humans play fundamental rolls; therefore, understanding how system work it will make possible to anticipate the behaviour in the systems and co-evolve with them instead of being controlled by them.

We present a brief description on a lecturing-learning process of Systems Sciences using the proposed structural approach published in the Journals ISSS of the 55th Conference.

The proposed structure, follows the domain of Science Model developed by Warfield, which helps the art of learning integrating the four main components of the Systems Sciences body of knowledge, of as follows:

The domain of Systems Science

The conceptual space and language of Systems Science

The theoretical relations within Systems Science

The methods of Systems Science

At the end of the paper we present an application of the didactic tool.
