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....

The Sciences of the Artificial - 3rd Edition Reviews
This book is impressive. The author's experience and awards says it all. The citation from google scholar is more than 20,000. I have read it for almost nine months and finally finished last month.
One of the best books ever written on complexity. Ranging from engineering to psychology, connecting all the dots.
For everybody who does research may get inspirations how to solve complex issues or problems. The last chapter presents methodology how to tackle it. Recommended for those who want to pursue career in research...
This book is one of the most thought provoking, challenging books I've come across in many years. Simon tosses off ideas like a Border Collie shaking off water. This is not a book to be skimmed, or to be taken lightly, but a slow careful reading will certainly pay off. I read this book for insights into product design, and it did not disappoint.
How could I NOT give Simon's seminal work five stars?
After 18 years still a valuable contribution to the philosophy of technology
I am really enjoying reading this book. It is very well written. I understand all they are talking about because of my background in engineering, but also because I understand psychology and computer science. It's a very easy read, full of rich ideas. I really enjoy this author very much. It's not for everyone, but for people who understand the fields I mention here.
Upon reading this book for the third time over a span of two decades, I decided to react to its content this time rather than to simply dismiss it as poorly informed and seriously flawed. That assessment derives largely from my fifty years of experience as an aerospace system designer, with an extensive record in development methods R&D. Furthermore, I am dismayed at the book’s trivialization of design and its naive understanding of engineering practice in general. Regrettably, the book thereupon proceeds along an even worse course via its fatuous prescriptions for a purported science of design and its automation.
