Abstract

"Systems design" represents a worldview composed of at least three philosophical layers: ontological beliefs, epistemological assumptions, and methodological choices. An archetype is a root metaphor that crosses these layers and captures a worldview. Three archetypes thought to have good potential for communicating and triggering inquiry into the nature of the systems design worldview are described. © 1995 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
