Call for Contributions: ESSE

desidero segnalarVi un'iniziativa interessante per tutti coloro che vogliono contribuire attivamente alla costruzione di un'enciclopedia del sapere "sistemico". Si tratta una Call for Contributions con deadline 30/06. La proposta è in inglese in quanto l'enciclopedia sarà redatta in lingua. Dettagli a seguire. Grazie per la diffusione.

ALBERTO FEBBRAJO , Universit of Macerata,Italy
ANDREA PITASI , d'Annunzio University Chieti-Pescara,Italy
DARIO RODRIGUEZ MANSILLA,Universidad Catolica de Santiago , Chile

ESSE is under construction and will be structured in about 200 items/entries . Among the key items: system complexity, differentiation, environment, communication, self organization, self reference, structural coupling,constructivism and items referred to key scholars such as Luhmann, von Foerster,von Glasersfeld etc. Contributors are fee to submit items they consider pivotal to understand System Sciences.
Each entry/item would be of about 2500 words, exceptional 5000 word items will be accepted for very key concepts ( "system" ,for example). You can choose one or more entries (up to 5 per author) among those listed below and /or choose some from the list and propose other ( total 5 entries,anyway).
