This paper first sketches the most important properties of cybernetics and general system theory and their connections. In order to determine their relationship we then describe the main stages in the development of cybernetics as well as its connection with the general system theory. Cybernetics and GST remain autonomous, maintaining their own internal logics and methods. Nevertheless, whenever they have to unite their forces for solving certain problems, like those of constructing complex systems with some kind of intelligence, they may cooperate in such a way that the complementary results they achieve may yield a complete picture.
