Information Society and its Manifestations: Economy, Politics, Culture

Edited By Borut Rončević and Matevž Tomšić

The book provides a compilation of idiosyncratic manifestations of information society in techno-economic, political and cultural spheres. The contributors focus on the increasing complexity within information societies. To manage this complexity, societies develop constantly evolving context-specific modes of meta-governance. The contributions allow a better understanding of well-known conceptualizations and definitions of information society and related concepts such as post-industrial society, post-modernity, as well as network society, and knowledge society.

Industrial Symbiotic Networks in the Information Society: Research Challenges and Perspectives

Abstract: The authors conceptualize industrial symbiotic networks and propose an interdisciplinary research program. Industrial symbiotic networks, whose prominence overlaps with the speeding-up of information society, transcend the boundaries of various systems, which includes the social system. This implies that they are not only technological networks, but are also social networks. The suggested research program falls within the realm of computational sociology and should model the morphogenesis of a complex network of networks: technological, informational, logistical and social.

Keywords: industrial symbiosis, networks, research strategy, simulations, computational sociology
