Cybernetics & Human Knowing, Volume 14: A Journal of Second-Order Cybernetics Autopoiesis and Cyber-Semiotics
his book brings together international experts on the application of Niklas Luhmann's theory of society as autopoietic communication. Luhmann's sociological systems theory is counter-intuitive and in its detached coolness difficult for many to understand and accept. Naturally they ask: is it really worth the trouble to learn? This book demonstrates what this combination of systems theory, Batesonian information theory, von Foerster's second-order cybernetics, Maturana and Varela's autopoiesis and Husserl's phenomenology can offer.
