What Theory is Not, Theorizing Is – Weick, 1995

When I saw Venkatesh Rao cite this in https://stream.syscoi.com/2019/07/19/weirding-diary-9-venkatesh-rao-on-a-possibly-dangerous-but-probably-mostly-harmless-resurgence-in-interest-in-classical-system-theory/, I was sure I had posted it here before – but apparently not, so here it is. Important article.
