Hegel – the whole is more than the sum of the parts. The whole determines the nature of the parts. Parts cannot be understood if considered in isolation from the whole. Parts are dynamically interrelated or interdependent. Aristotle – the whole is more than the sum of the parts Descartes – Discours de la Methode : “break down every complex problem as many separate (isolate simple elements as might be possible) Bertalanffy – the system theory of the organism, which analyzes holism. (sum of parts alone cannot explain the whole, the whole is different and does something different with all of its parts together) General Systems Theory – wholeness (the whole is greater than the sum of its parts) differentiation (systems bring together components with different properties order (systems operate on hierarchical levels) equifinality (objectives can be achieved with varying inputs and in different ways) progression (systems evolve in stages with time)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
