[Fis] New Dialog on Social Systems

Dear Joseph and colleagues,

Let me first cordially thank to the contributors who have chimed in the 
list and expressed their appreciation. About your reflection, yes, it 
was a neat transdisciplinary exercise. It was an initial idea from 
Andrei that we two crystallized during the IS4SI venue in Berkeley. In 
some sense it is unusual business, given the compartmentalized structure 
of most research, but at the same time it may be the natural way to look 
at such "information objects" of extreme complexity as societies are. We 
need a bunch of the perspectives capable of saying anything interesting 
or relevant about them. For medieval thinker Raymond Lulli this handling 
of heterogeneous perspectives was the intellectual "Ars Magna".  It 
represents the continued recombination processes withing the "ecologies 
of knowledge" of our colleague Yixin. And it was one of fundamental 
information principles I presented last month.

And to draw some more water to my own mill, quite many principles of 
those variegated disciplines might be put in connection with the 
principles of information science. Information science and information 
philosophy would appear as the "unofficial handlers" of that intuitive Art.

Best regards
