KREATIVITÄT UND FORM
In his homonymic book, Herman Hesse sketches the idea of a Glass Bead game in which the “player plays like the organist on an organ. And this organ has attained an almost unimaginable perfection; its manuals and pedals range over the entire intellectual cosmos; its stops are almost beyond number. Theoretically this instrument is capable of reproducing in the Game the entire intellectual content of the universe.” The authors develop for the first time the possibilities and limits of such universal game with and about knowledge. The accompanying computer program enables the player to experiment with knowledge. Thereby the book stretches through computing methods its application domain from logic to system theory, to scientific- and knowledge theory, to semiotic, to cognition and communication.
- The idea was presented and discussed in the ICT & Society Network Meeting, Bercelona, 2010, published in Triple C: Rainer E. Zimmermann, Simon M. Wiedenmann (2010) “3rd ICTs and Society Meeting; Paper Session – Theorizing the Internet; Paper 6: Reconstructing the Glass Bead Game. On the Philosophy of Information”, TripleC, 8(2).
