Preamble. In the early 21st century, the wide use of the prefix cyber-has become the marker of the penetration of computer and information science, broadly conceived, into myriad facets of our lives. This use of the term can be traced back to a single book, Norbert Wiener’s Cybernetics (Wiener,Wiener, ).I first read that book in earlyand my subsequent research Cited by: 1.

Wiener defined cybernetics as “the science of control and communications in the animal and machine.” This definition relates cybernetics closely with the theory of automatic control and also with physiology, particularly the physiology of the nervous system.

For instance, a “controller” might be the human brain, which might receive. Cybernetics is often thought of as a grim military or industrial science of control.

The resulting cyberization yields what is referred to as a cyberbrain, which is a hybrid of an individual's original nervous tissue with cybernetic components.
