Some Musings About Systems Theory

In this video, Dr. Paul Astin, founder and head of Manzanita School discusses systems theory as it relates to our trimester I unit of study on Earth Systems Science.

Three years ago, in October of 2015 (during Manzanita’s second year), Dr. Paul gave a Speaker Series talk on “Systems Theory.” This important field is closely linked to our understanding of Earth System Science, and how our living planet and the biota regulate the atmosphere on earth. Systems thinking is an emerging field with tremendous implications for how we live and how we solution crises we are facing. Dr. Paul covers this area, as well as exploring other new ideas in this comprehensive presentation. Please enjoy.
