Cybernetics as we know is both trans- and multi-disciplinary. In consequence its fields of interest are wide ranging. The Editorial Advisory Board should perhaps be excused for its failure in the 36 years of existence to commission more papers on “Cybernetics and Design”. Our index will show that the area has not been totally neglected although in this time no special issues devoted to this theme have been published. We are therefore extremely grateful to Dr Ranulph Glanville for suggesting that this Special Double issue should be produced and for accepting our invitation to be its Guest Editor.
In his introduction he outlines the scope of the issue and “reaches out to an audience that Kybernetes has not previously tried to reach — designers — in an effort to build a bridge connecting cybernetics and design”. He and his invited contributors have undoubtedly done this and we look forward to their participation in future volumes of the journal.
The publishers of Kybernetes, the EAB and its editors thank all who have contributed to the success of this special double issue.
