Abstract [en]

Integrates cybernetics & sociology as a coherent framework -- sociocybernetics -- introducing fundamental basics of the traditional, or so-called first-order, cybernetics. Problems & limitations in applying first-order cybernetics in sociological studies are approached from methodological & ontological perspectives. Presented is an organic integration of cybernetics (Wiener, N., 1948; Geyer, F., 1995), activity theory (Engestrom, Y., 1987; Leont'ev, A. N., 1981), autopoietic sociological theory (Luhmann, N., 1986 [see abstract 86c00792]), systems approach (Churchman, C. W., 1979), & communication theory (Wiener, N., 1955) into a coherent sociocybernetic framework
