Abstract [en]

Probably unintentional but still excessive application of systems thinking may be a major cause of technology being endowed with hardwired presupposition about activities and contexts, which in human terms would be called prejudice. In turn, this could perhaps be a consequence of inappropriate application of Systems Engineering. A few thoughts are presented about the consequences of predetermination (e.g., Reason 2000; Norman 2002; Vicente 2006), about why this continues to create problems, and about how it might be countered. The aim is to promote a debate that will lead to more appropriate application and thereby increased utility of systems thinking, which occurs when it is balanced with better knowledge about possible consequences. This debate begins with the introduction of a few provocative concepts. The systemic paradox is naturally problematic in this context, and the vicious circle culture thrives on systems thinking and grows from initially harmless flaws to become serious dangers.
