Cybernetics Revisited

Cybernetics Revisited
Leonardo Electronic Almanac, Volume 22 Issue 2

Description: This volume is a hybrid collection of essays which explore current critical discourses on possible future developments in cybernetics. It investigates marginal and interstitial areas of cybernetics—conceived as a cybernetics of the third order—theorizing alternative possibilities, opportunities, and threats. Cybernetics become not solely a panacea to all the evils of humanity but also the unpredictable opportunity for new life forms that can be alternatives to current ecologies and hierarchies or that can reveal existing and unexpressed ontological possibilities inherent to nature itself.
