In the s, the French physicist Ampere used it to describe the science of civil. The upshot here is that systems theory, and especially the central ideas of cybernetics, provide powerful ways of advancing the work of design and design research — tools, frameworks, and theory for modeling and thereby understanding and being able to better communicate the complex dynamics of physical, biological, and digital systems.
