Abstract

Arthur George Tansley's paper "The Temporal Genetic Series as a Means of Approach to Philosophy," published here for the first time, provides the philosophical context for the development of his ecosystem theory. His rejection of idealist reasoning, his concern with ethics, and his long standing interest in Freudian psychology as well as mechanistic reasoning comprised the intellectual underpinnings for his thinking on systems and ecosystem theory.
