Стр. 164 - I am bound by my own definition of criticism: a disinterested endeavour to learn and propagate the best that is known and thought in the world.
Стр. 129 - Manuscript received January 23, 1959. Contribution from the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Wayne State University College of Medicine, Detroit, Michigan. This investigation was supported by a research grant H-3424 from the National Heart Institute, National Institutes of Health, US Public Health Service.
Стр. 149 - Not only do subsystems usually maintain equilibrium, but they are also usually in balance with their environments, which have outputs into systems and inputs from them. This prevents variations in the environment from destroying systems, either by collapse or by explosion. There is a range of stability for any parameter or variable in any system. It is that range within which the rate of correction is minimal or zero and beyond which correction does occur. Inputs (or loads), either coded or uncoded,...
Стр. 189 - Prediction and Entropy of Printed English," Bell System Technical Journal 30, 1950, pp.
Стр. 64 - N-person game has not yet been proved, and moreover, when solutions are found, it is extremely difficult to impose "reasonable" conditions which would single out a unique solution. When one recalls that even a "unique" solution is not an imputation but a whole set, which may be immense (or actually infinite), one is tempted to conclude that this aspect of game theory is powerless to predict anything about human behavior, even in the normative sense (by the criterion of "rationality"). Again it appears...
Стр. 148 - According to the current statement of this point of view systems are bounded regions in space-time, involving energy interchange among their parts, which are associated in functional relationships, and with their environments. General systems theory is a series of related definitions, assumptions, and postulates about all levels of systems from atomic particles through atoms, molecules, crystals, viruses, cells, organs, individuals, small groups, societies, planets, solar systems, and galaxies. General...
Стр. 64 - ... not too different" from it, conditions of stability may be derived, and this stability applies both to a coalition partition and to an associated imputation. That is, the end result of an N-person game may be stabilized if there is no permissible coalition which can effect a change in the imputation so as to offer an inducement for its occurrence. Luce calls such restraints sociological assumptions. And so they are or, perhaps, socio-psychological ones. They call to mind a viscosity-like or an...
Стр. 69 - When we say teleology, we mean teleology in its modern garb, made respectable by cybernetics. For cybernetics has concerned itself with a new phylum of machines, machines which behave as if they had goals. The mathematics of cybernetics has shown how, on the basis of physical laws alone plus certain principles of constructing networks of causal relations (networks including closed loops, which, recall, we have excluded from our simple-chain linkages of relations), "goal -seeking" behavior of mechanisms...
Стр. 69 - What then can a philosopher mean when he suggests that the method of biology may have more to offer than physics to the science of the future, the science of organized complexity? Can he mean that the modern scientist should place more reliance on those aspects of biology which are carry-overs from a previous age? Such a position would be difficult to defend. Yet a defense of the "holist's...
Стр. 110 - These I have loved: White plates and cups, clean-gleaming, Ringed with blue lines; and feathery, faery dust; Wet roofs, beneath the lamp-light; the strong crust Of friendly bread; and many-tasting food; Rainbows; and the blue bitter smoke of wood; And radiant raindrops couching in cool flowers; And flowers themselves, that sway through sunny hours, Dreaming of moths that drink them under the moon; Then, the cool kindliness of sheets, that soon Smooth away trouble; and the rough male kiss Of blankets...
