Presentation

I am an interdisciplinary researcher that has moved from an MA in biology (ecology and behavioral sciences) over a gold medal thesis in psychology (philosophy of ethology) both Copenhagen. U. through a PhD in philosophy of information sciences (Roskilde U.) after 10 year teaching at the Royal School of Library and Information science to a Habilitat in Cybersemiotics combining the natural, life, social and technical sciences with the humanities though an integration of a Peircean biosemiotic and Luhmann's autopoietic system science into a transdisciplinary framework (Copenhagen Business School).

Cybersemiotics is now described in several international encyclopedias, dictionaries and handbooks in linguistics, semiotics, Informations science, cybernetics and system science.

I created an interdisciplinary journal in the area called "Cybernetics & Human Knowing" in 1992 and have been editor-in-chief ever since.

  • Philosophy of the  natural, life, social, information, cognitive, communication and system sciences and humanities
