Subject: SYSTEMIC ENCYCLOPAEDIA CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: list of entries



Hello,

I would like to diffuse this call for entries (through MP list
server?). I hope someone in the Millennium Project in the world would
be interested.

My kindest regards,

Giulio

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: DEADLINE EXTENSION to MAY 31st 2010



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

ESSENTIAL SYSTEM SCIENCE ENCYCLOPAEDIA (ESSE)

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. deadline to submit the  fully written
proposed  item(s) is postponed to May 31st 2010



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).
All my best
Andrea Pitasi
