Fuzziness, Cognition and Cybernetics: a historical perspective

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

In the present paper, we connect some old reflectionsabout the relationships existing between the theory offuzzy sets and cybernetics with modern, contemporaryanalyses of the crucial (better: unavoidable) role thatfuzziness plays in the attempts at scientifically describingaspects of information sciences. The connection,which has a basic conceptual origin, has been triggeredalso by the recent 50th anniversary of Norbert Wiener’sdeath which has been instrumental in looking again atsome crucial aspects of the birth of information sciencesin the midst of the last century. Fuzzy sets are an essentialpart of this revolution and share all the innovationsas well as the difficulties of this towering scientificenterprise which has changed the vision of what a scientificapproach must be when dealing with somethinglike information so different from the old matter and energy.tThese considerations are helpful in looking in anenlarged way at how to treat and consider the notion ofcognition.
