PhD course on
organized by Professor Søren Brier
The course is first of all an explanation and exploration of the integrative transdisciplinary framework Cybersemiotics and how it is carried out in two steps: The first is to accept three major and very different transdisciplinary paradigms as both being legitimate: 1. The cybernetic-informational approach leading to cognitive science’s information processing paradigm, 2. Second order cybernetics, autopoiesis theory and Luhmann’s system science and 3. The Peircean, triadic, evolutionary, semiotic approach to meaning and its development into modern biosemiotics.
The second step involves explaining the development from first order cybernetics to second order cybernetic and autopoiesis theory from Gregory Bateson through Heinz von Foerster to Maturana and Varela and Spencer Brown to Niklas Luhmann’s threefold autopoietic system theory and discuss how it can be integrated into a Peircean framework encompassing the natural, life, social and human sciences without reducing one to the other. Pierce’s metaphysical view on sciences, philosophy and religion and the nature of reality is also discussed. Participant contribute to the discussions with presentation of their interdisciplinary projects and the problems they face.
The course is organized by Professor Søren Brier (CBS). It contains lectures by Jesper Hoffmeyer, Frederik Stjernfelt, Stephen Cowley, Torkild Thellefsen, Sara Cannizzaro and Kathrine Elizabeth Lorena Johansson and will function in a workshop style.
