In this lecture given to the International Society for Systems Sciences in 2002, Warfield outlines his theory of the Basic Triad of All Science. Warfield argues that all science has three basic components: the human being, thought and language. He then discusses the Domain of Science Model, neutral science, group pathologies and the Work Program of Complexity. The slides for the lecture are attached at the end of the document. John N.
