Brocklesby J. & Mingers J. (2005) The use of the concept autopoiesis in the theory of viable systems. Systems Research and Behavioral Science 22(1): 3–9. Fulltext at http://cepa.info/2808
This paper examines the application and usage of the idea of autopoiesis – a theory of living systems – within the context of viable systems theory. In recent years the term autopoiesis has extended beyond the domain of cellular biology where it originated and is now used extensively across a range of different disciplines, fields of enquiry, and professional practice. The paper seeks to provide clarification of a distinction between viable and autopoietic systems that appears to have become somewhat clouded as a result of the transfer of ideas and terminology from one domain to another.
