ICAS: Why Cybernetic Anthropology?

We make evolutions more efficient.


Biological and cultural anthropology is the science of man - of his behaviour, his motives, his activities, his social structures, his values, his visions, his culture.

Cybernetics, or systems theory, offers a sound methodology to talk about these issues.

For a more detailed discussion see our Letter to the Visitor.
