Open peer commentary: A theatre for exploring the cybernetic

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

While Tom Scholte has concentrated on ways in which cybernetics can inform theatre, the connections that he has developed between the two fields are significant for being not ones of application but, rather, overlap, where cybernetic processes are seen to be being enacted within an already established set of practices. Scholte’s bridge building is, therefore, suggestive of further possibilities, opening up a new avenue for exploring how cybernetics may be understood in terms of action rather than theory, and so as an active research tradition rather than one form of worldview amongst others. This is highly relevant to the context of this volume and previous concerns in Constructivist Foundations with second-order science (Riegler & Müller 2014).
