Ernst von Glasersfeld


  2005 Award Certificate




The certificate says:

The Wiener Gold Medal of the American Society for Cybernetics is awarded to Ernst von Glasersfeld for outstanding and profound lifelong contributions to both cybernetics and the ASC (the American Society for Cybernetics).

Von Glasersfeld's seminal work, developing a constructivist approach to problems raised by early cyberneticians, has enriched the field and moved the conceptual base of cybernetics into a more consistent vision - expanding the nature of how we understand cybernetics, how we enter into cybernetic processes of constructing our worlds, and how we approach the consequences of this understanding.
