Next week Tomáš Sigmund is guest at our center. He works as Assistant Professor at the Department of Systems Analysis that belongs to the Faculty of Informatics and Statistics at the University of Economics, Prague, and is preparing for his habilitation. 

Currently he is focusing on theoretical systems approaches towards information and computer ethics. Special attention shall be paid to soft systems methodology in comparison to critical thinking based upon realist social accounts in line with Ludwig von Bertalanffy’s General System Theory.
