Tectology of A.A. Bogdanov and the Universal Duality Principle

Despite the fact that the total organizational science (tectology) has been existing for about a hundred years, it has not yet become a science in the classical sense of the word because of its universality. Scientists have not recognized the dual concepts, that saturate tectology, as their working tools. The universal principle of duality can become a means of transforming tectology from an intellectual monument into a consistently applied tool for obtaining new knowledge about the regularity of birth, development and disappearance of organizational forms.
