Abstract:

The paper attempts to dispel some of this confusion involving the word system. It attempts to show that system is semantically legitimate per se, despite its many specific meanings by a reviewing some obvious but neglected facts of perception and cognition b explicating an implication of these facts -- the core meaning of a word c trying to show that the many definitions of system are correct applications of the core meaning of system to concrete cases d formulating a possible taxonomy of these applications.
