II. OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH COMMITTEE:
It is the main objective of the RC to promote the development
of (socio)cybernetic theory and research within the social
sciences. Sociocybernetics is broadly defined here as including first- and second-order cybernetics, general systems theory, and
various combinations and variations of these that can be subsumed under the term "the emerging sciences of complexity", to the
extent these can be applied to the subject matter of the social sciences.
