Field Note #146. On "Cybernetics, Bateson + Beer"

(a) Gregory Bateson, "Cybernetic Explanation" in Am. Behavioral Scientist 10(8): 29-32 (1967); and
(b) Stafford Beer, "What is Cybernetics?" in Kybernetes, 31(2), 209-2019 (2002)

The Context.

Interdisciplinarity, risk, "via negativa," robustness, uncertainty, complexity, control, prediction, intervention, big data, recursion, fractals...

are but a few keywords explored across these Field Notes (accessible mostly via this site's search bar) and...

weaved together by the boundary bending field of cybernetics, contributed to by Gregory Bateson (1904-1980) and Stafford Beer (1926-2002).


The Map.

My form of aesthetic expression.

caminante, no hay camino
se hace camino al andar
walker, there is no path,
the path is made by walking
– Antonio Machado, Spanish poet (qtd. Beer, 2019)
