抄録: This symposium asks: “If Systems Sciences are to help integrate human efforts and advancement, how will they do so?” This paper addresses this question and reviews the use of general system theory, and in particular, hierarchy theory, as one such way of applying systems science to issues of concern in global systems. The paper further emphasizes the need to investigate systems sciences with a rigorous and systematic procedure. This report presents an on-going research program to produce a critical systematic review of hierarchy theory and a critical review of the utility of hierarchy theory for addressing issues arising in complex systems. The methodology of systematic review utilizes extensive literature searching and review, the application of predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria to the retrieved literature, and the critical evaluation and synthesis of the gathered data on hierarchy theory. The goal of this paper is to propose a framework for systematic critical review of any systems methodology that can also be specifically applied to hierarchy theory. This will provide theoretical rigor and practical implementation for this area of systems science. It is also useful in this symposium as an underpinning and plea for rigor in addressing the question as to “what really constitutes systems, their development, and their design”.
