An interdisciplinary approach for a new understanding of nature and society Berlin ; New York : Springer-Verlag, c1992. Phys. Description: x, 357 p. : 46 Figures. ; 25 cm. Includes bibliographical references (pp. 347-357). ********************************************************************* Features contributions of: Vili Csanyi Sidney Fox Hermann Haken George Kampis Jenny Kien Wolfgang Klement Ervin Laszlo Greg Nicolis John Nicolis Theodor Oeser Mika Pantzar Michael Requardt Anton Semenov This book is based on an invited conference, held in Bremen, Germany, October 8-10 1990. At the conference, issues related to Haefner's Basic Paper were discussed. The Basic Paper is reproduced in the first part of the book. This paper claims that the same information theoretic principles can govern computers, life, and minds, and further, that they are valid for atomic systems and societal systems too. As a counterweight, the other papers of the volume offer, by and large, a critical attitude or at least significant refinements to this thesis. These papers, many of which were written by leading experts, offer new views on information based on ideas of computer science, synergetics, self-organization, neural networks, and self- modification.
