Wiener, Norbert, 1894-1964.  
The Human Use of Human Beings: Cybernetics and Society. Second Edition, Revised.

Publisher: New York, Doubleday Anchor [1954]. A 34.
199 p., index; 18 cm. "The new science of cybernetics which Professor Wiener and his colleagues at M.I.T. have developed has had a marked influence on theories of communication and control not only in mathematics, engineering, and electronics, where it began, but in such areas as psychiatry and psychotherapy, neurology, physics, and even in certain social sciences. In this substantially revised edition of his famous layman's version of the best-selling Cybernetics, Professor Wiener undertakes to relate his provocative point of view to some of its larger philosophical implications as well as to explain in fascinating detail the manlike machines which have acquired such formidable and potentially dangerous power in our world." Paper; cover signed Giretti; VG. Stock#21985.
