Glasersfeld E. von (1979) Cybernetics, experience, and the concept of self. In: Ozer M. N. (ed.) A cybernetic approach to the assessment of children: Toward a more humane use of human beings. Westview Press, Boulder CO: 67–113. Fulltext at
I shall adopt a cybernetic attitude and develop some ideas on how a child forms certain basic concepts, among them the concept of self. Drawing on Jean Piaget’s analysis of cognitive development during the sensorimotor period, I shall try to show, on the one hand, that his theory is quite compatible with the cybernetic way of thinking and, on the other hand, that the cybernetic way of thinking may help to illuminate some of the darker corners of the theory.
