In 2012, at the 56th Annual Meeting of the International Society of the Systems Sciences, an aspiration of "Rethinking Systems Thinking" was proposed. In 2019, the rise in interest in "systems change" led to the formation of the Systems Changes Learning Circle, centered in Toronto, Canada. Now 4 years into a 10-year journey, research publications and presentations are being released.
In 2022, the Systems Changes Learning approach features three concepts: (i) rhythmic shifts; (ii) texture (leading to contexture); and (iii) propensity. Practices developed are depicted as hub of "knowing from within" appreciated through a cycle of learning along four spoke. Theory-building through multiparadigm inquiry includes philosophies of science underlying Classcial Chinese Medicine and ecological anthropology.
