Ludwig von Bertalanffy, in his book General Systems Theory, presents the Whorfian Principle

Question 1.) Ludwig von Bertalanffy, in his book “General Systems Theory,” presents the Whorfian Principle and provides us with the following quote from Whorf:

We are thus introduced to a new principle of relativity, which holds that all observers are not led by the
same physical evidence to the same picture of the universe, unless their linguistic backgrounds are
similar. We cut up and organize the spread and flow of events as we do, mainly because, through our
mother tongue, we are parties of an agreement to do so, not because nature itself is segmented in exactly
that way for all to see (Whorf, 1952, p. 21). (p. 223)

From what you have learned about General Systems Theory, how would the Whorfian Principal impact engineers and engineering management in the real working world? Your analysis should look at the theoretical and practical issues involved and any other issues you see relevant.

Use relevant concepts of system theory
