CALL FOR PAPERS

for a topical issue of Open Philosophy

(NEO)CYBERNETIC PATHS FOR AN EPISTEMOLOGY OF DIGITAL CULTURES

 

Open Philosophy (https://www.degruyter.com/journal/key/OPPHIL/html) invites submissions for the topical issue “(Neo)Cybernetic Paths for an Epistemology of Digital Cultures,” edited by Arantzazu Saratxaga Arregi (University of Applied Arts, Vienna) and Deniz Yenimazman (University of Bayreuth)

 

DESCRIPTION

 

The cybernetic programme of operational control and regulation policy is today a raw reality, predominantly as a dystopia. Planetary governmentality can be micropolitically controlled by autonomous regulatory technologies, making the principles of cybernetics ubiquitous. The absoluteness of the presence of cybernetic technologies to regulate socio-political spheres has contributed decisively to the crisis of the social-democratic and humanist worldview. Overall, socio-cybernetic traces and concepts (artificial intelligence, big data, deep learning, complex systems and so forth) are more relevant today than ever. They do not exactly suggest the end of cybernetics, but rather its successful completion as an interdisciplinary methodological and practical set of concepts. Accordingly, we are happy to take up the challenge of reflecting on the syncretic style of thinking cybernetics that has led to today's post-digital constellation of the human condition and to rethink its traces and reception.
