Abstract:

This is the first of the two volumes the second volume being Thomas Ballmer s Biological Foundations of Linguistic Communication (P & B III:7) treating biocybernetical questions of language. This book starts from a cybernetic explication of some action theoretic notions, like control and ability. These notions are used in order to provide adequate means of describing the complex and subtle phenomena of communication, both from a general point of view as well as from a specifically linguistic perspective. In addition the relation between biological systems and language is discussed.
