The fundamental objective of the new scientific discipline called control theory is that of modifying the behavior of a system subject to various constraints of feasibility so as to achieve desired aims. From the mathematical point of view, the prime purpose is to approximate to reality by means of hierarchies of mathe matical models, each representing a projection of the scientific scene. Some aspects of this attitude are discussed and the possible contributions of modern control theory to the biomedical domain are briefly indicated.
