CPTS Publications

Draft

The following publications are either the work of CPTS or have been made possible, or influenced by, the work of CPTS, especially in its Annual Working Conferences.

Books:

Strijbos S, Basden A, eds. (2006) "In Search of an Integrative Vision of Technology: Interdisciplinary Studies in Information Systems". Kluwer/Springer, Contemporary Systems Thinking Series.

This is a collection of updated versions of selected papers that have arisen from the annual conferences of the Centre for Philosophy, Technology and Social Systems, which have been published in refereed academic journals. Its main contribution is to bring together papers on information technology, methodology, use, ethics and strategic direction into a coherent 'integrative vision'.
