    • Artistic research in Wiener’s oeuvre
    • Oswald Wiener’s approach to cognitive psychology
    • On the link between informatics and self-observation

    Aims and Scope

    Oswald Wiener–whose activities covered many fields, whose roots are in the arts, and who by necessity became a researcher–made it difficult for his ideas to be accepted by science throughout his life. This has different reasons, one of them being his seemingly eccentric approach to understanding artistic research as not contrasting with discursive science, and another one being the fact that he linked informatics with self-observation.

    The book also includes conversations of the authors with Wiener about the three stages of forming a theory: "From language critique to cognition theory", "From cognition theory to automata theory", and "From automata theory to Weisertheorie". The book is intended for those who have read and are familiar with Wiener’s writings as well as for social scientists and psychologists.
