Self-organizing systems are understood as systems that operate autonomously, and co-evolve between themselves through transitions between disorder and order: they have been studied from different schools of thought which include the sciences of complexity, complex adaptive systems (CAS) and cybernetics.

McEwan, who seems to have studied at least briefly with Gordon Pask and Stafford Beer, and who draws upon their British tradition of 'management' cybernetics--focused on organisational dynamics and social interaction, rather than, say, artificial neurons or anti-aircraft guns--to articulate a case for anarchy based in the scientific concept of self-organisation, or as he states himself, 'to suggest that some of the concepts used by cyberneticians studying evolving self-organizing systems may be relevant to anarchist theory, and that some of the conclusions drawn from this study tend to favour libertarian models of social organization' (McEwan 1963: 270).
