BibliographyDear Reader,

This page is a gateway into my bibliography organized by topic. Eclectic – granted: but necessarily so because of the complexity of divining human intent using silicon-based devices. I don’t love all the titles, but they each helped me in some way, many by blowing my mind with ideas I had never considered, others with ideas that I rejected at first, then grew convinced after further review, and others that I still don’t swallow. You’ll notice that many of the titles revolve around my last academic forays at Tokyo Institute of Technology (with Tanaka Sensei) and the University of Minnesota (with Dr. Slagle) in the mid and late 80s. Had I the bandwidth to continue documenting my interim delving in the bibliography, I certainly would have done so. But I’m working to make up for the lost time and continuing to build this bibliography of cybernetics. The following topics and references are used in the UnderstandingContext blog:
