    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    We live today surrounded by countless digital gadgets and navigate through cyberspace as if it were the most natural thing in the world. This digital cast of being, however, comes from a long history of philosophical and mathematical thinking in which the Western will to productive power over movement has attained its consummation.

With an appendix reinterpreting quantum mechanical indeterminacy phenomenologically.
