Example text

The theory of dramatic genre (based on the assumption that it is synonymous with dramaturgy) has been primarily occupied with the differences between tragedy and comedy, rarely searching for the isomorphic structure of all types of dramatic genre. 4 The founder of general systems theory, Ludwig von Bertalanffy, writes: Thus, there exist models, principles, and laws that apply to generalized systems or their subclasses, irrespective of their particular kind, the nature of their component elements, and the relations or “forces” between them.

The remark that he “scoffed terribly at softness in anyone” only highlights to what extent this character is vulnerable. His guardianship of two young artists further implies that he is a caring person with moral values. Besides, his desire to create a masterpiece and mention of Michelangelo and Moses may suggest that his ideals are global and sublime, but as a nervous kind, he finds his inspiration by scandalizing the public. Thus, we have a set of all parameters, both material and relational, that are controversial.

As Katsenelinboigen states, entities consist of initial and dual parameters necessary for explicitly measuring the power of their impact on a system’s development. In analyzing any entity we distinguish both, as the initial objects (parameters), that is, elements, as the initial relations (parameters) between these elements. . The initial parameters necessarily include those that make up the anatomy and the physiology of the system. We shall refer to them as essentials. The initial parameters may also contain the relations between elements; the concept of relations requires separate treatment.
