Forthcoming Publication: Anticipation Across Disciplines (M. Nadin, Editor). Springer Cognitive Systems Monographs 29. To appear in 2016

Anticipation Across Disciplines, released in Fall 2016, is the second book in a series of three volumes, published in the Springer series Cognitive Systems Monographs. Papers presented at the international conference (September 22-24, 2014) of the same name cover topics such as information processing, politics, botany, architecture, botany, anticipatory computation, computer science, education, art/creativity. Readers seeking a foundation for anticipation will find in this book recent outcomes pertinent to plant life, political anticipation, cognitive science, architecture, computation. Leading scholars in economics, energy research, oceanography, engineering, and behavioral sciences working in the defining spirit of interdisciplinarity implied by anticipation provide rich evidence of anticipatory processes at work of a very large scope: from an art event (documented in this book) to experiments in neuroscience, anticipation in engineering, anticipatory expression in plants, anticipation in politics, and anticipatory computing.
