When lkdwig arrived at his Gymnasium a form of grammar school he was already well habituated in learning by reading, and he continued to study on his own.
The greatest merit of Bertalanffy, beneath his outstanding work on theoretical biology, was to have pushed forward the development of the modern system theories that nowadays study non-stationary structures and the dynamics of self-organization. November 13, Vienna, Austria. He was the youngest member of the core group of the Macy conferences on Cybernetics and editor of the five volumes of Cybernetics bertalannffya series of conference transcripts that represent important foundational conversations in the field.

Open system systems theory. It relates that a population ages, and that fact is the only one that influences bertalwnffy in population density; the negative sign shows that time flows ludeig just one direction, that there is no birth and the population is going to die out.
There Bertalanffy concentrated his research on a comparative physiology of growth. His main goal was to unite metabolism, growth, morphogenesis and sense physiology to a dynamic theory of stationary open systems For it, he developed the kinetic theory of open systems characteristics of which are equifinality and steady state. This is an interdisciplinary practice that describes systems with interacting components, applicable to biologycybernetics and other fields.

In “Leadership and Decision-Making,” Vroom, with Philip Yetton, showed how different leadership styles can be used in solving different types of problems. Bertalanffy’s contribution to systems theory is best known for his theory of open systems.
