Towards a feminist-systems theory – an overview of method, emerging results and implications for practice.
Keywords:Critical Systems Theory, Ecofeminism, Systemic Intervention
AbstractThis paper provides the findings of a current study to locate the similarity and/or differences between two epistemologies: Critical Systems Thinking (CST) and cultural ecofeminism. Selected texts from authors in each field were coded and compared using the Constant Comparative Analysis (CCA) Grounded Theory method. The texts revealed a multitude of similarities between the two bodies across a range of concepts including systems thinking language; challenges to positivist science, reason and instrumentalism; ethics and morality and praxis. From the initial synthesis of the data, several principles towards one feminist-systems theory of practice are emerging.
