Raul Espejo (ed.): Kybernetes. The International Journal of Systems & Cybernetics: Tribute to Stafford Beer (2004)
Filed under journal | Tags: · cybernetics
This special double issue is a tribute, in memoriam, to Stafford Beer, patron of this journal, President of the World Organisation of Systems and Cybernetics (WOSC) and one of the leading cyberneticians and systemists of his generation. He was not only a great academic and thinker but a man of wide ranging interests and activities that are well-known to his friends and colleagues, but not necessarily to a wider audience. This issue, therefore, reflects in its tributes to him, his unique contributions not only in academia but also to society at large.
Many of the contributions included in this commemorative issue were based on presentations given at the event to celebrate his life held at the London School of Economics (UK) in March 2003 (Celebration of Stafford Beer’s Life and Work, 2003).
