88 Systems Methodology: The Logic of the Madness Sociocultural Systems Holistic Thinking Operational Thinking Design Thinking Four foundations of systems thinking. As we saw in Chapter 3, unless we understand the implications of self-organizing behavior of sociocultural systems, the multi-minded beast will outmaneuver any attempt to tame it. Part Two of this book contained a full discussion of the first foundation of sys- tems thinking, the sociocultural system. In Part Three, we will deal with the three remaining foundations, holistic thinking, operational thinking, and design thinking, in Chapters 5 to 9.
