The objective of this paper is to construct an analytic framework for the interaction of man with the environment. The term anthroposystem is proposed as the name for the interacting functional unit produced by man for the purpose of maintaining his own civilization. Recognition of the concept of the anthroposystem would be helpful in understanding and analyzing the issues presented by environmental problems.
