Systemic approach
 
Why a systemic approach? The answer is simple. To be able to understand the WHOLE without necessarily having to understand the impossible details of all the parts. Those are indeed infinite, and, therefore, ask for an infinity of
specialists on the bottom of an infinite debate. So that in extreme cases the world can fall to pieces before you get a glimpse of the beginning of a possible comprehension. In order that the trees do not hide the forest, the recourse to systemic becomes impossible to circumvent.

You can thus understand the
whole without necessarily understanding the elements of this whole. All you have to do is to put between brackets the 'contents' and let the 'container' give intelligibility. The world is a whole and this whole is never simply the sum of its parts. A question like this one: 'world, where do you go?' could thus not be mixed up with the question so much easier: 'components of the world, where do you go?'!

Our approach goes against constant drifts, which today are even more fallacious. Firstly, the
ideological drift, especially under its species of 'moralizing' kitsch which despises the 'reality' and takes pleasure in simple construction of 'ideas', guarantors of easy hits and emotional euphorias. Secondly, what you can call the 'philosophy of the storekeeper'. This positivism of the shop manages the ingredients held in stock as if they had their importance in itself, and considers all the remainder according to the calculations of this management. Such is in general the world of the 'specialists' or other 'experts-in-this-or-that' which unceasingly claim new prospects and unceasingly are lamentably mistaken. Lastly, on the plan of a praxis, without the systemic approach, there is only a proliferation of transitory tactics without real strategy.

To understand alive realities one should not think 'structure'. You have to think '
system'. `Alive System. A 'structure', that of the crystal for example, finally finds its explanation in its chemical geometry. An 'alive system', on the other hand, survives only in opening
. From its simplest forms to its most complex one, step by step in interactive interlocking with the whole of life, with the whole of nature, with the whole of the ecosystem, with the whole of the cosmos. Here the 'contained' objects are impossible to isolate. They are alive realities. Organic realities. Realities in interdependence, in inter-reaction, in interrelationship. Impossible to look after a body without looking after the entire body and, especially, without looking after the environment of this body.

- Each system, whatever its complexity, its size or its situation in the middle of an other system, functions, as a system, in an identical way. 2 - It is thus enough to know the operation of any system to understand them all.  3
- Any system can thus be taken as 'model' of operation.



An interactive whole of micro-systems buckled the ones into the others can form a more complex system. There is theoretically no limit for the increasing complexity. Each of the 'openings' of a system can be connected on those of the next system, and so on, gradually, from a minimal systemic unit towards the greatest one.

From the simplest micro-system to the most complex macro-system, and whatever its degree of systemic complexity, it is the
function which characterizes a system. And functions can be of an incredible diversity.

A system in itself with its inner working and all the complexity of its articulations can be regarded as a '
black box'. The term says its 'mysterious' complexity. He also says that this 'box' can remain obscure without darkening the intelligence of the 'whole'. Its 'contents' can thus remain in the shade. But what has to be absolutely clear is its 'containing' environment, that is its function, its entries and its exits.

The systemic approach does not relate on the contents but on the
container, namely a dynamic space with its entries and its exits. This approach is of an extraordinary fruitfulness. Here the intelligence of the whole precedes and conditions that of the part. The intelligence of the including precedes and conditions that of the included. All the elements are understood starting from this whole.

What makes basically of a 'whole' a 'system', is its
organization. A system is not understood starting from its components, neither from the connections between these elements, nor even from the interactions between these connections, but primarily according to its organisational specificities. It is as organized, and only as organized, that a system resists its reduction in elements and transcends the quantitative juxtaposition of the multiplicity and the diversity which composes it. In this organized complex unit the whole is always more than the sum of the parts, the organization to some extent conferring them a supplement of being, of operation and of action out of proportion with the parts alone. But already a part is still more than a part. The organized whole is a new emergence.
