January 10 (the second Monday of the month) is the 96th meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration will be at https://living-becoming-st-on.eventbrite.ca
Living, Becoming, Process Philosophy: Systems Thinking in Time
Structure is an arrangement in space. Process is an arrangement in time. Beyond being, living systems can be seen as becoming.
Are we overlooking time, when we talk about systems thinking? What happens if we base our thinking on a process philosophy?
This session may lead participants to reframe their perceptions of systems.
The link for a Zoom conference will be sent upon preregistration.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic OCADU, sLab (Strategic Innovation Lab), 205 Richmond Street West, Room 410 is not available!
Pre-reading isn't absolutely required, but may prime participants towards richer insights.
