The sciences of the artificial by Herbert A Simon( Book )

143 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 2,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Continuing his exploration of the organization of complexity and the science of design, this new edition of Herbert Simon's classic work on artificial intelligence adds a chapter that sorts out the current themes and tools -- chaos, adaptive systems, genetic algorithms -- for analyzing complexity and complex systems. There are updates throughout the book as well. These take into account important advances in cognitive psychology and the science of design while confirming and extending the book's basic thesis: that a physical symbol system has the necessary and sufficient means for intelligent action. The chapter 'Economic Reality' has also been revised to reflect a change in emphasis in Simon's thinking about the respective roles of organizations and markets in economic systems"--Publisher's description
Organizations by James G March( Book )

153 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IL s'agit ici des "organisations formelles": entreprises, administrations, groupes et organismes sociaux. La mise au point porte sur les aspects théoriques des problèmes de comportement, de motivation et de conflits. La connaissance des processus rationnels, la planification et l'innovation font l'objet des derniers développements. Une mise à jour de la bibliographie aurait ajouté à la valeur de l'ouvrage
The new science of management decision by Herbert A Simon( Book )

62 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My research activities during the past decade have brought me into contact with developments in the use of electronic digital computers. These computers are startling even in a world that takes atomic energy and the prospects of space travel in its stride. The computer and the new decision-making techniques associated with it are bringing changes in white-collar, executive, and professional work as momentous as those the introduction of machinery has brought to manual jobs. The invitation extended to me by the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance of New York University, to spend some weeks there as Ford Distinguished Visiting Professor and to deliver a series of public lectures, provided me a welcome opportunity to reflect about the organizational and social implications of these rapid technical developments. The lectures, slightly expanded here from the form of their public presentation, record the product--a very speculative product--of my reflections"--Preface.

Models of discovery : and other topics in the methods of science by Herbert A Simon( Book )

21 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these essays, the author attacks the central problems in the philosophy of science from the viewpoint of a working scientist who relates the philosophical questions to methodological issues that have arisen in his own research. The essays deal with six main topics: the validation of hypotheses, the logic of causal ordering and its relation to the definability and identifiability of theoretical terms, the logic of imperatives and decisions, the structure of complex systems, the theory of scientific discovery, and the axiomization of scientific theories. He treats these topics in a unified way by employing the analytic tools of model theory and by putting the discovery of theories, rather than their testing, at the center of the stage. Questions surrounding the axiomization of theories are examined in the light of real examples (Newtonian mechanics and Ohm's law) rather than simplified, hypothetical ones. Formalisms are not avoided, but they are always used as a means and not as ends in themselves.--

Here, several leading experts in the area of cognitive science summarize their current research programs, tracing Herbert A. Simon's influence on their own work -- and on the field of information processing at large. Topics covered include problem- solving, imagery, reading, writing, memory, expertise, instruction, and learning. Collectively, the chapters reveal a high degree of coherence across the various specialized disciplines within cognition -- a coherence largely attributable to the initial unity in Simon's seminal and pioneering contributions

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herbert Simon (1916-2001) est l'un des rares penseurs et scientifiques du 20e siècle qui aient excellé dans les domaines les plus divers comme la psychologie, les sciences politiques, la recherche opérationnelle ou le management. Cet ouvrage retrace son cheminement, en s'aidant du fil d'Ariane de la conception ("design") qu'il met au cœur des sciences de l'artificiel (réaliser ce qui n'existe pas encore, en évoquant "ce qu'il pourrait être" pour atteindre tel ou tel but) et du naturel (rendre intelligible ce qui existe déjà, en imaginant "ce qu'il devrait être" s'il visait telle ou telle fin)
