Skepticism might well be an incurable ailment that will not leave us, according to Hume (Norris, 1982). The implications of adopting Deconstruction Theory extend well beyond literature, making social criticism of history and philosophy virtually impossible (Goodheart, 1984). Derrida may be thought of as the learned father of contemporary Deconstructionist thinking (see Norris, 1982). He stressed that there is no language so vigilant and self-aware that it can effectively escape the conditions placed upon thought by its own prehistory and metaphysics.

In this chapter some propositions about systems thinking for liberation of knowledge and emancipation of those in need at work and in other social situations have been launched. The core of the argument of this book, that makes Liberating Systems Theory an unusually powerful critical approach, is the meta-unity of Foucault's Interpretive Analytics and Habermas' knowledge-constitutive interests. The essence of this argument is acceptance of unities as critical, but rejection of universals as totalizing.

This can be achieved if we accept that there is no single metaphorical/analogical term which is 'system'. Such singularity would clearly be nonsense. In the last forty or so years there has been considerable redefinition through analogical reasoning. There are various abstractions relating to an organic natural world. These deal with traditionally conceived passive ideas of feedback in organisms, ecology, and evolution. Additionally, types of relationship between organisms have been theorized, such as the idea of autopoiesis and the active feedforward conception of the brain of man.
