Of Phantom Limbs and Foreign Bodies

Thanks to Ken Godat for this wonderful find on Open Humanities Press.    Heinz von Foerster at the BCL Photo courtesy of the University of Illinois Archives, Faculty and Staff Press Release File, RS 39/1/11 In the summer of 1975, as his   Biological Computer Laboratory   (BCL) at the University of Illinois shut down its functions and he faced the prospect of an unwanted retirement, 63-year-old   Heinz von Foerster   became the subject of a disturbing observation by his wife Mai.
