It is the main objective of the RC to promote the development
of (socio)cybernetic theory and research within the social
sciences. Sociocybernetics is broadly defined here as including
first- and second-order cybernetics, general systems theory,
and various combinations and variations of these that can
be subsumed under the term "the emerging sciences of complexity",
to the extent these can be applied to the subject matter
of the social sciences.
