Fundamentals


Data Quantities resulting from measurement have been the default concept of what constitutes data in PCT. This category also includes discussion of the characteristics, experimental management, and modeling of different kinds of non-quantitative data. Methodology Discussion on innovative research methodology on PCT. Any suggestions? Phenomena The basic of PCT - What is Control? How Control manifests? Et Cetera. System Constraints Control Structures Dogmatic PCT This category is for topics that demand dogmatic adherence to excerpts from the writings of William T. Powers as a the authoritative definition of PCT, and reject verbal formulations that are perceived to deviate from that fixed standard. Philosophy Many people have been excited by control theory and its implications. Recurrently, people (especially those new to PCT) who are familiar with writings of Bateson, Bertelanffy, Wiener, McCulloch, and others seek to understand PCT in their terms, or (more productively, perhaps) attempt to restate the ideas of such ‘cybernetic philosophers’ within the PCT model. Others look to explore the challenges that PCT poses for epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of science on first principles.
