Ernst von Glasersfeld Honored (Again)

SRRI's Ernst von Glasersfeld has been awarded the American Society of Cybernetics Wiener Gold Medal "for outstanding and profound lifelong contributions to both cybernetics and the ASC."

According to the announcement,

Von Glasersfeld's seminal work, developing a contructivist approach to problems raised by early cyberneticians, has enriched the field and moved the conceptual base of cybernetics into a more consistent vision -- expanding the nature of how we understand cybernetics, how we enter into cybernetic processes of constructing our worlds, and how we approach the consequences of this understanding.

We always knew he was a bright guy.
