Re: Cybernetics • Arthur Phillips
Responding to what I’ll abductively interpret as a plea for relevance from the cybernetic galley, let me give a quick review of where we are in this many-oared expedition.
Our reading of Ashby (see Survey of Cybernetics) veered off at a point (Selection 13) where we needed to look more closely at the structures of triadic relations and the ways in which pragmatic, semiotic, and systems thinking all have triadic relations at their core. As often happens, one side-trip leads to another, but I think our excursions through sign relations, triadic relations, and relations in general will prove useful in the long run as we get back to the question of how signs bear information of use to intelligent systems with a capacity for methodical scientific inquiry.
