Emergent Trans-
formation

GAIA5.0_stillframe_earth+homology_sphere

Author: Wolfgang Hofkirchner

Starting from the book Emergent Information, emergentism, systemism and informationism are applied to the fields of social theory, the theory of information society and the theory of technology design in the age of global challenges. The new book makes the case for a Critical Social Systems Theory, a Critical Information Society Theory, and a Critical Theory of Techno-Social Systems Design. By doing so, principles are developed that are key for the techno-eco-social transformation towards a global sustainable information society.

Title and subtitle of the book changed: The Logic of the Third. A Paradigm Shift to a Shared Future for Humanity. Read the preface to understand why.

Book project. Publication date: November 2022.

The title was changed to "Das Lernen (wieder) lernen".
