Zur systemtheoretischen Verallgemeinerung des Kra begri es

In order to generalize the concept of force due to its application within theoretical descriptions of biological systems, the Newtonian notion of force is used. So-called ‘wholenesslike’ (ganzheitliche) systems of notions allow us to define ‘wholenesslike’ states. There are two possible changes of such states: the changes of eigenstates and the change of the structure of systems. Therefore, two types of forces are discussed: systemeigenforces and systemcombinationforces.
