AES: A JOURNAL OF THE EUS

Acta Europeana Systemica (AES) is the journal of the European Union for Systemics (EUS).
Founded in 1988, the EUS, aims at promoting European research and practice of systemics. The EUS is a community of national scientific societies. The EUS seeks to establish, through its network of companies, a favourable environment to the evolution of systemics (including its theoretical foundations, its methods and its implementation) and its diffusion, in particular by promoting transdisciplinary exchanges.

Goals of the journal AES

The main objective of the journal AES is to promote systems thinking by providing keys to understanding the complexity of reality. Its mission is to promote the emergence, communication and deepening of systemic thinking.
The existence of the journal AES is necessitated by the realization that the complexity of the society in which we live exacerbates the need to find the tools, methods, an epistemology that allows to understand the functioning of the phenomena around us and and able to act.
The journal AES is a place of reflection and exchange that confronts multiple practices, training and systems research. It supports in particular the approaches inter/pluri/multi/trans-disciplinary, openings to cultural diversity, field experiences and references to theoretical work.
