Ecosemiotic Paradigm For Nature & Culture:
Transdisciplinary Explorations in the Cybernetics of Learning, Adapting, Understanding & Knowing,
Mikołów, Poland, July 9 (Monday)–12 (Thursday), 2018
The theme of this convention inscribes itself into the investigative domains of biological-evolutional psychology, semiotic phenomenology of human communication, educational sociology as well as cultural anthropology. It merges two interrelated mind/brain- and actuality/virtuality-oriented research traditions, namely, epistemology as a metascientific theory of knowledge or psychophysiological theory of knowing and ecology as a theory environmental embedding of organismic and social systems. The respective topics of inquiry may include modelling systems of reality, possible worlds, mind & care, psychotherapy, medicine, and communicology. Against this background, the subject matter of the 2018 conference may focus on the living-systems development in the realm of plants, animals, and humans engaged in species-specific cognizing activities and meaningful relationships within and with their genuine and artificial environments.
