Stafford Beer: The Falcondale Collection

Beer, Stafford and Liverpool John Moores University (1994) Stafford Beer: The Falcondale Collection. [Data Collection]


The Falcondale Collection is a series of nine tapes where Professor Stafford Beer initiates a small group into the world of systems and managerial cybernetics, including the Viable System Model and Team Syntegrity™ in conversation at the Falcondale Hotel, Lampeter North Wales.

The conversations cover art, science and philosophy on one hand and practical applications in society, government, community, management and business on the other. The relaxed setting provided a natural flow of discussion, gave opportunity to review and explore ideas in a context unlike conventional lectures.

Transcripts for each recording are also available.
