Research theme

My work could be situated at the crossroad of heuristics and self practices, cognitive sciences and technologies, and complexity (ars). It has been converging toward the historical emergence of an experiential and enactive hermeneutical rationality that i call "scybernethics". It could be linked with the second order cybernetics tradition of experimental (cf. McCulloch) and applied epistemology of and for "observing systems" (Von Foerster) and with the more recent "radical constructivist" (Von Glasersfeld) point of view. Basically, i've developing a dialogical know-how / know-what in articulating first and third person point of view. I'm actually trying to understand and build some bridges between scybernethics and Simondon's framework.

Keywords: heuristical practices, dynamical and applied epistemology, in-formation and self-design, bio-techno-philosophy, second order rationality
