According to BLAUBERG et al: "There are two basic requirements for the meta-language:
1. it must include the language-object (all the expressions of the language-object must be translatable into those of the meta-language), and
2. it must be richer logically than the language object (it must have the necessary logical means for describing the structure and other properties of the language-object)" (1977, p.198-9).
It seems quite possible that only some of the concepts of general systems theory could be translated into a formalized meta-language, as stated by BLAUBERG et al. themselves.
- 1) General information
- 2) Methodology or model
- 3) Epistemology, ontology and semantics
- 4) Human sciences
- 5) Discipline oriented
