Two types of systems and three types of paradigms in systems philosophy and system science


Now it is evident that nature and society have a great number of special systems which very differ from traditional objects (systems) of physics, chemists and engineering. For such special (synergetic-chaotic) systems we are proposed the special third paradigm and construct five basic properties of (unique) systems and on 13 differences in the methods, basic concepts about such systems. The introduction of such basic properties and differences are presented in the article. We postulate the humanity evolution, dynamic of social and political systems, biosphere of Earth, the human organism and his functional systems and many other systems (Universe at all) have all five such properties and must be described according to special synergetic paradigm. Now the authors presents all these special properties and the special table where the differences between deterministic-stochastic systems (and its theoretical approaches) and the synergetic systems (complexity, self-organization systems) were presented more conveniently.
