New Horizons For Second-order Cybernetics Hardback
Edited by Karl H. (Int'l Academy For Systems & Cybernetic Sciences, Austria) Muller, Alexander (Vrije Univ Brussel, Belgium) Riegler, Stuart A. (George Washington Univ, Usa) Umpleby
Part of the Series on Knots & Everything series
In almost 60 articles this book reviews the current state of second-order cybernetics and investigates which new research methods second-order cybernetics can offer to tackle wicked problems in science and in society.
The contributions explore its application to both scientific fields (such as mathematics, psychology and consciousness research) and non-scientific ones (such as design theory and theater science).
The book uses a pluralistic, multifaceted approach to discuss these applications: Each main article is accompanied by several commentaries and author responses, which together allow the reader to discover further perspectives than in the original article alone.
This procedure shows that second-order cybernetics is already on its way to becoming an idea shared by many researchers in a variety of disciplines.
