Abstract

This paper explains how and why the author engaged with the work of Sir Geoffrey Vickers and found it highly relevant to researching learning systems for environmental decision making at the start of the twenty-first century. Key areas of Vickers' work reviewed are his ethical concerns that relate to what we refer to today as ecological sustainability, his insights into systems thinking, his concept of an appreciative system and his distinctions concerning learning.
