In Wahrscheinlichkeit und Wissenschaft, das hier erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegt, geht George Spencer Brown von der alltäglichen Vorstellung der "realen Welt" aus und zeigt, dass der Beobachter über die Grundoperationen der Unterscheidung eine solche unabhängige Welt erschafft: "Wir unterscheiden zwischen leibhaftigen Menschen und Romanfiguren, zwischen tatsächlichen und geträumten Ereignissen, zwischen echten und Spielzeugsoldaten, zwischen lebendigen Sprachen und Esperanto. Auch grenzen wir die reale Welt der Realität von den mannigfachen Formen des Irrealen ab, die jene Roman-, Ersatz-, Spielzeug- oder Traumwelten einschließen. Aufgrund einer entsprechenden Konvention setzt das Adjektiv 'real' irgendwie Sein voraus, wogegen irreale Welten nicht existieren sollen. Das ist offenbar widersprüchlich." Der Kern des Buches führt zu den metaphysischen Knoten im Begriff der Wahrscheinlichkeit, der im neuzeitlichen Wissenschaftsverständnis eine zentrale Position einnimmt. Spencer Brown deckt Widersprüche und Paradoxien in wissenschaftlichen Methoden auf, die sich auf die Idee der Wahrscheinlichkeit stützen. Hier hat das Buch selbst 40 Jahre nach seiner Erstveröffentlichung nichts an Brisanz und Aktualität verloren

Many people can remember the 1920's, but it takes a remarkable skill to recreate those far-off days for readers who were born too late to experience them. Professor Spencer-Brown, whose classic works "Laws of Form" and "Only Two can play This Game" were both best-selling Bantam paperbacks, is perhaps the only writer who can bring to life the secret loves, fantasies, and frustrations of a two-year-old who recalls 1925 as if it were only yesterday

George Spencer Brown Eine Einführung in die "Laws of Form" by Tatjana Schönwälder-Kuntze ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die vorliegende Einführung ist eine dezidierte Auseinandersetzung mit den "Laws of Form" von George Spencer Brown. Dieser Text bildet nicht nur eine der theoretischen Grundlagen der soziologischen Systemtheorie, sondern er wird auch seit seinem Erscheinen 1969 als schwer verständlich und höchst kryptisch eingestuft. Die drei AutorInnen haben es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Licht in dieses scheinbare Dunkel zu bringen. Das gelingt ihnen mit dem wohldurchdachten Aufbau, dessen Hauptteil aus drei Teilen besteht. Im ersten Teil werden die "Laws of Form" in ihren Entstehungskontexten einerseits und in ihrer inneren Architektur andererseits vorgestellt. Der zweite Teil besteht in einem exegetischen Textkommentar, der Kapitel für Kapitel den dort entstehenden Kalkül begleitet und erläutert. Den dritten Teil schließlich bilden Einblicke in Theorien verschiedener wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen, in denen die "Laws of Form" bereits Wirkung gezeigt haben. PD Dr. Tatjana Schönwälder-Kuntze ist derzeit Wissenschaftliche Assistentin an der Fakultät für Philosophie und Religionswissenschaft der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Dr. Katrin Wille ist derzeit Akademische Rätin am Institut für Philosophie der Philipps-Universität Marburg. Dr. Thomas Hölscher ist an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München tätig
