Annotation: This paper purports that throughout history, there has been continuous interplay between the ideals of individual disciplines and the prevailing weltanschauung. It then suggests, using examples from the Arts, Physics and Neuroscience, that the current
weltanschauung is gradually adopting a systems view. Economic theory provides a map for human behaviour but can never replicate the whole. The map is not the territory. The paper then critically evaluates the effects of a systems weltanschauung on Economic theory and practice. The current age is strongly connected with environmental issues. The attitudes, values and morality of Gen Z (people born after 1995) are very different to those of previous generations.
