Meet the Author Series: The Evolutionary Dynamics of Discursive Knowledge: Communication-Theoretical Perspectives on an Empirical Philosophy of Science July 28, 2022 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EDT)

Description The book brings together three themes which have been central to my research program: (1) the dynamics of science, technology, and innovation; (2) the scientometric operationalization and measurement of these dynamics; and (3) the Triple Helix (TH) of university-industry-government relations. I relate these three themes first from an autobiographical perspective to (i)) Luhmann’s sociological theory about meaning-processing in communications with (ii) information-theoretical operationalizations of the possible synergies in Triple-Helix relations, and with (iii) anticipation as a selection mechanism in cultural evolutions different from “natural selection.” Interacting selection mechanisms can drive the development of redundancy; that is, options that are available, but have not yet been used. An increasing number of options is crucial for the viability of innovation systems more than is past performance. A calculus of redundancy different from and complementary to information calculus is envisaged.The webinar focuses on his book entitled “The Evolutionary Dynamics of Discursive Knowledge: .” (The book is freely available at SpringerOpen: https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-030-59951-5 ).
