On Mario Bunge's Definition of System and System Boundary
Cavallo, Andrew M.
Science & Education, v21 n10 p1595-1599 Oct 2012
In this short paper we discuss Mario Bunge's definition of system boundary. It is quickly discovered that Bunge's definition of system and system boundary are both deficient. We thus propose new definitions, which (hopefully) improve the situation. Our definition of system boundary works off the same intuition behind Bunge's.
