Anticipatory systems : philosophical, mathematical, and methodological foundations by Robert Rosen( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Rosen was not only a biologist, he was also a brilliant mathematician whose extraordinary contributions to theoretical biology were tremendous. Founding, with this book, the area of Anticipatory Systems Theory is a remarkable outcome of his work in theoretical biology. This second edition of his book¡Anticipatory Systems, has been carefully revised and edited, and includes¡an Introduction by Judith Rosen. It has also been expanded with¡a set of Prolegomena by Dr. Mihai Nadin, who offers an historical¡survey of¡this fast growing field since the original work was published. There is also some exciting new work, in the form of an additional chapter on the Ontology of Anticipation, by Dr. John Kineman. ¡An addendum-- with autobiographical reminiscences by Robert Rosen, himself, and a short story by Judith Rosen about her father-- adds a personal touch.¡ This work, now¡available again, serves as the guiding foundations for the growing field of Anticipatory Systems and, indeed, any area of science that deals with living organisms in some way, including the study of Life and Mind. It will also be of interest to graduate students and researchers in the field of Systems Science
Anticipation Learning from the Past: the Russian by Mihai Nadin( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the work of leading scientists from Russia, Georgia, Estonia, Lithuania, Israel, and the USA, revealing major insights long unknown to the scientific community. Without any doubt their work will provide a springboard for further research in anticipation. Until recently, Robert Rosen (Anticipatory Systems) and Mihai Nadin (MIND – Anticipation and Chaos) were deemed forerunners in this still new knowledge domain. The distinguished neurobiologist, Steven Rose, pointed to the fact that Soviet neuropsychological theories have not on the whole been well received by Western science. These earlier insights as presented in this volume make an important contribution to the foundation of the science of anticipation. It is shown that the daring hypotheses and rich experimental evidence produced by Bernstein, Beritashvili, Ukhtomsky, Anokhin, and Uznadze, among others—extend foundational work to aspects of neuroscience, physiology, motorics, education
Anticipation across disciplines by Mihai Nadin( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never before was anticipation more relevant to the life and activity of humankind than it is today. "It is no overstatement to suggest that humanity's future will be shaped by its capacity to anticipate ." (Research Agenda for the 21st Century, National Science Foundation). The sciences and the humanities can no longer risk explaining away the complexity and interactivity that lie at the foundation of life and living. The perspective of the world that anticipation opens justifies the descriptor "the post-Cartesian Revolution." If anticipation is a valid research domain, what practical relevance can we await? Indeed, anticipation is more than just the latest catch-word in marketing the apps developed by the digital technology industry. Due to spectacular advances in the study of the living, anticipation can claim a legitimate place in current investigations and applications in the sciences and the humanities. Biology, genetics, medicine, as well as politics and cognitive, behavioral, and social sciences, provide rich evidence of anticipatory processes at work. Readers seeking a foundation for anticipation will find in these pages recent outcomes pertinent to plant life, political anticipation, cognitive science, architecture, computation. The authors contributing to this volume frame experimental data in language that can be shared among experts from all fields of endeavor. The major characteristic is the inference from the richness of data to principles and practical consequences
Anticipation and medicine by Mihai Nadin( )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, practicing physicians and experts in anticipation present arguments for a new understanding of medicine. Their contributions make it clear that medicine is the decisive test for anticipation. The reader is presented with a provocative hypothesis: If medicine will align itself with the anticipatory condition of life, it can prompt the most important revolution in our time. To this end, all stakeholders-medical practitioners, patients, scientists, and technology developers will have to engage in the conversation. The book makes the case for the transition from expensive, and only marginally effective, reactive treatment through "spare parts" (joint replacements, organ transplants) and reliance on pharmaceuticals (antibiotics, opiates) to anticipation-informed healthcare. Readers will understand why the current premise of treating various behavioral conditions (attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, schizophrenia) through drugs has to be re-evaluated from the perspective of anticipation. In the manner practiced today, medicine generates dependence and long-lasting damage to those it is paid to help. As we better understand the nature of the living, the proactive view of healthcare, within which the science and art of healing fuse, becomes a social and political mandate
The civilization of illiteracy by Mihai Nadin( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Phenomena related to the transition from a literacy-dominated civilization to one of various means of expression and communication are at the center of his book. The fall of totalitarian regimes, the current structural difficulties of the European Community, the burden of state bureaucracies, the world-wide effort of re-engineering, and the global economy are part of the bigger picture of a necessary development." "This is no longer a world of two cultures - science and humanities - that C.P. Snow discussed. It is a world of a dynamics never before experienced in history. In this world, many new literacies, subject to obsolescence as anything else is in our time, override the need and possibility of one encompassing literacy. They provide means for human interaction appropriate to achieving probably the most radical forms of individualism, as well as the most intriguing means of social interconditioning."--Jacket
