Keywords: scientific development | systemic perspective | geographic environmental studies.

Considerations resulting from scientific development currently contribute to the possibility of greater communicability and cooperation among areas of knowledge, presenting undeniable possibilities for environmental studies. The modern systemic perspective fits in this context, solidifying itself as a powerfultheoretical and analytic instrument whose improvements currently suggest more flexible views of dualisms directly tied to the theme of geography in general and environmental studies (subject/object, quality/ quantity, local/global). Based on a historic survey of some of the scientific considerations and advances related to the evolution of the systemic perspective, understanding of the physical dynamics of matter, the subject/object relationship, etc., some of the approaches already accomplished for understanding environmental systems and considerations regarding the most appropriate groups of approaches tothe physical-natural and human environments are covered.
