May 24, Manuel Pita rated it it was amazing. This was the first book I was asked to read when I started my undergrad in systems engineering. The lecturer who recommended this book was passionate about systems theory.
Joel the Rosnay in many ways changed my life. After this book I became interested in cybernetics, I started to think about information processing mechanisms in natural systems where there are no CPUs controlling the processes. I believe the contents of the book remain extremely relevant today. Mar 25, Matteo Tonelli rated it liked it. C'est dommage. Sep 08, Zulfadzli Zaini rated it liked it.

Le Macroscope: Vers Une Vision Globale (Points ; 80)
De Rosnay is particularly interested in advanced technologies and the applications of system theory. De Rosnay wrote for several years on new technologies for the economic magazine L'Expansion. He speaks on the same subject for Europe1 , a radio network. De Rosnay is the author of several scientific books aimed at a wider public, such as:. In The Symbiotic Man , De Rosnay defines a unit of a wholistic social structure, expanding on the concept of the singular living holobiont to also include the totality of human-made machines.
Therefore, we have made it again available on the web. He is an associate of the Principia Cybernetica Project. This book is an excellent, easy to read introduction to cybernetics and systems thinking, with applications to living organisms, the economy and the world as a whole. The main theme is that the complex systems which govern our life should be looked at as a whole, rather than be taken apart into their constituents. The different systems, processes and mechanisms are beautifully illustrated with examples and pictures.
