During the next ASC conference (June 2-5 2016), we will be holding a half-day symposium on Second Order Science building on the work summarized above.  The panel will be led by Lou Kauffman, Karl Mueller, Stuart Umpleby, Michele Friend and Michael Lissack.  The links to the right provide insight into the perspectives of these scholars.  We hope the symposium will provide a platform for even more perspectives.  Come join us.  (To contribute please contact Stuart Umpleby.) More info coming soon.


In January 2016, ASC and ISCE held a joint workshop on Second Order Science.  The group of about twenty scholars developed the first stages of a book tentatively titled:  Navigating Past Deceptions -- Science as Process. (see Introduction and Outline here) The group will be presenting the first draft during the next ASC conference.  As materials for the book become available they will be posted here. 

Karl Mueller's book Second Order Science: The Revolution of Scientific Structures  was published in January.

The November 2014 issue of Constructivist Foundations was devoted to Second Order Science.
