In Honor of Deceased Editors
Cybernetics and Human Knowing is a quarterly international multi- and transdisciplinary journal focusing on second-order cybernetics and cybersemiotic approaches.
The journal is devoted to the new understandings of the self-organizing processes of information and signification in living and artificial systems as well as human knowing that have arisen through second order cybernetics and autopoiesis and their relation to and relevance for other interdisciplinary approaches such as C.S. Peirce's semiotics and biosemiotics. This new development within the area of knowledge-directed processes is a non- or transdisciplinary approach. Through the concept of self-reference it explores: cognition, communication and languaging in all of its manifestations; our understanding of organization and information in human, artificial and natural systems; and our understanding of understanding within the natural and social sciences, humanities, computer, information and library science, and in social practices like design, education, organization, teaching, medicine, therapy, art, management and politics.
Because of the interdisciplinary character articles are written in such a way that people from other domains can understand them. Articles from practitioners will be accepted in a special section. All articles are peer-reviewed.
