A Bibliographic Note on this Bibliography

This is an updated and considerably expanded version of a bibliography that was first published in 1999 as an appendix to the essay "An appreciation of C. West Churchman (with an extensive bibliography from 1938 to 2001)" in the Section "Luminaries of the Systems Approach" of the web site of the International Society for the Systems Sciences (ISSS), under the following original URL (no longer valid): http://www.isss.org/lumCWC.htm . That first on-line version of 1999 was later (in January 2005) reformatted as a public Wiki page and relocated to http://projects.isss.org/c_west_churchman .

In 2002, the bibliography was first expanded to a complete list of all of Churchman publications known to the author at that time and was made available as a separate publication in the present site. It has been continuously updated since – with a last major revision and extension on 10 April 2006 – and will be further updated whenever the author becomes aware of omissions or errors. Any help in this will be welcome; please use the email link given in the right hand column here or in the "Contact" page of this web site. Thank you.

Werner Ulrich was born in 1948 in Bern, Switzerland. He obtained doctorates in Economics and Social Science (Dr.rer.pol., 1975) from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, and in Philosophy of Social Systems Design (Ph.D., 1980) from the University of California at Berkeley. At Berkeley he studied and worked for five years with C. West Churchman. He has since become known as a pioneer of Critical Systems Thinking (CST), which he understands as the use of systemic thinking in the service of reflective practice and research.

Ulrich has many years of experience as chief evaluator of public health and social welfare in the Canton of Bern and as professor of social planning, program evaluation, poverty research, and critical systems thinking at the University of Fribourg and other universities. He has been visiting professor of critical systems thinking at the Centre for Systems Studies of the University of Hull, Hull, UK, at the Lincoln School of Management of the University of Lincoln, Lincoln, UK, and at the Department of Management of Canterbury University in Christchurch, New Zealand (Erskine Science Prestige Fellowship), and currently is Honorary Visiting Professor in the Technology Faculty ( Centre for Complexity and Change) of The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK.

Among some 150 publications, his major book thus far is Critical Heuristics of Social Planning: A New Approach to Practical Philosophy (Haupt, Bern, 1983, Wiley paperback reprint edition, New York, 1994). His current research program "CST for Professionals and Citizens" explores the ways critical systems thinking can contribute to responsible professional practice and to preparing citizens for their role in a living civil society.

C. West Churchman, my former teacher and mentor at the University of California, Berkeley, is one of the outstanding pioneers of the "systems approach." Find some material about him here, including an extensive bibliography and three tribute articles dedicated to West, in which I tried to appreciate the importance that his thinking (and my experience of working with him during five years) had for my work on critical systems heuristics.
