A growing field of inquiry, biosemiotics is a theory of cognition and communication that unites the living and the cultural world. What is missing from this theory, however, is the unification of the information and computational realms of the non-living natural and technical world. Cybersemiotics provides such a framework.

By integrating cybernetic information theory into the unique semiotic framework of C.S. Peirce, Søren Brier attempts to find a unified conceptual framework that encompasses the complex area of information, cognition, and communication science. This integration is performed through Niklas Luhmann's autopoietic systems theory of social communication. The link between cybernetics and semiotics is, further, an ethological and evolutionary theory of embodiment combined with Lakoff and Johnson's 'philosophy in the flesh.' This demands the development of a transdisciplinary philosophy of knowledge as much common sense as it is cultured in the humanities and the sciences. Such an epistemological and ontological framework is also developed in this volume.

Cybersemiotics not only builds a bridge between science and culture, it provides a framework that encompasses them both. The cybersemiotic framework offers a platform for a new level of global dialogue between knowledge systems, including a view of science that does not compete with religion but offers the possibility for mutual and fruitful exchange.

As a person keenly interested in Charles S. Peirce's pragmatism and semiotic, it is gratifying to see a towering syncretic intellect like Soren Brier incorporating Peirce's triadic semiotic as essential in the resolution of formidable problems in an increasingly important attempt to integrate information, cognitive, and communication science. This book attempts to do this (or, at least, take a bold step toward a future integration) by relating especially Niklas Luhmann's communicative theory with Peirce's semiotic. Cybersemiotics is a 'big book' (over 450 pages) as it must be in laying the groundwork for this ambitious synthesis'and more than synthesis, integration'of semiotics, biosemiotics, cybernetics, autopoiesis, communication science, and much else. In many ways Brier is uniquely well suited for preparing the way for this possible unified science of the future as is clear to those who, for example, have followed his work editing/ contributing to the journal Cybernetics and Human Knowing. He is as erudite and inter- transdisciplinary a thinker as I know of, at least in the fields mentioned above (and a few others to boot, for example, the social sciences and aspects of philosophy).

So, does Brier pull off this bold, 'synoptic' integration? Well, I would think that he would be the first to say that that is a work of the future, hopefully the near-future. Still, for starters, he clearly articulates the challenge. For example, near the end of the book he connects his metadisciplinary cybersemiotic theory to the problem of meaning (429) in writing: 'Meaning is related mostly to life, mind, language, culture and consciousness and usually is not considered relevant to the chemical and physical realm. Following this, we must admit that it is not simply a question of reductionism versus holism or general system theory, but more of a 'two-cultures' problem with theoretical explanations based on science and technology on the one side, and the humanities and qualitative social sciences, including philosophy, on the other.' As Brier is quite aware, bringing these two cultures together'and in this he includes the idea of a non-antagonistic, indeed creative dialogue between science and religion'this can at present be hardly more than a 'hope'. He continues shortly after: 'This is a great challenge but one that is necessary to overcome for the sake of our culture. Peirce has made most of this framework available.' Articulating the centrality of Peirce's philosophy and, especially, his triadic semiotic, along with the importance of second-order cybernetics and autopoietic systems theory towards the resolution of this vital challenge, are but a few of Brier's several significant contributions towards the evolution of this manner of global, transdisciplinary thinking.

What I might fault in the book: (1) a wholly inadequate Index, something which I hope Brier will correct in future editions, or perhaps on his web site, as in its present form it is nearly useless; (2) rather primitively drawn diagrams and other figures (the content of many is quite valuable in quickly grasping certain points being made, but the rendering of them leaves much to be desired so that the sophistication of the text in contrast to the crudeness of some of the diagrams is jarring). Finally, while I don't feel qualified to comment 'authoritatively' on anything but the Peircean content, I did find one error, understandable enough as Peirce, by his own admission, made it himself for a very brief time. In a diagram of categorially triadic relations, Brier associates 'deduction' and not 'induction' with categorial secondness (275).

In sum, for anyone interested in the possible integration of the fields, disciplines, and cultures mentioned above, Cybersemiotics is necessary reading and highly recommended.

It is hard to find adequate words of praise for this remarkable synthesis of so many strands of contemporary thought. Paul Cobley catches the spirit of it in his rich endorsement on the back cover, which states, "This volume offers an illuminating discussion of the works of Maturana and Varela, von Foerster, Luhmann, and Peirce. But this book is not merely a synthesis, it is a dazzling manifesto for a unified information science, ensuring that Soren Brier's name will be spoken in the same breath as that of Wiener and Bateson."

Are you working within the IT-sector then Doctor Habil Søren Brier's
book is a MUST HAVE. In Søren Brier's book "Cybersemiotics: Why
information is not enough", you will find most of the philosophical
clues and science theory connected with object orientation and
IT-system development. Establishing and managing `agile' system
development means optimizing and integrating different forms of
communication between nature, humans and computers.
Doctor Habil Søren Brier supports with evidence the importance of
differentiating between information and communication in order to
answer questions we all puzzle within IT such as, "how do project
teams understand the relation between subject and object, thinking and
reality, the language and what the language stands for?"
Once you have read Søren Brier's book, you will be inspired to use his
new paradigm `Cybersemiotics' as a familiar tool to observe multiple
ways to build bridges between science and culture in 'agile' system
development.
There is no doubt that "Cybersemiotics: Why information is not enough"
can be used as THE framework for an understanding of IT system
development as communication.
