**Critical systems thinking** is a recent systems thinking framework, that wants to bring unity to the diversity of different systems approaches and advises managers how best to use them.

Critical Systems Thinking according to Bammer (2003) "aims to combine systems thinking and participatory methods to address the challenges of problems characterised by large scale, complexity, uncertainty, impermanence, and imperfection. It allows nonlinear relationships, feedback loops, hierarchies, emergent properties and so on to be taken into account and Critical Systems Thinking has particularly problematised the issue of boundaries and their consequences for inclusion, exclusion and marginalisation".

“Spig Wead: I’ve been *thinking* what a heel I’ve been about you and about my own kids. I don’t know, when I do something, I go all the way. Living. Gambling. Flying. I tap myself out. I guess that’s the way I want it to be. Maybe even the way I am.

Minne Wead: Star-spangled Spig. Damn the martinis, full speed ahead and don’t give up the ship.”

—Frank Fenton, William Wister Haines, co-scenarist, and John Ford. Spig Wead (John Wayne)

“To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts. Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details, worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and *critical* hour.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“Not out of those, on whom *systems* of education have exhausted their culture, comes the helpful giant to destroy the old or to build the new, but out of unhandselled savage nature, out of terrible Druids and Berserkirs, come at last Alfred and Shakespeare.”
