RC51 Sociocybernetics



Established in 1998

Objectives

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.
