Ethics Is Not A Theory B. P. The two books that you have published within the last decade are called Wissen und Gewissen [Knowledge and Conscience] and KybernEthik [CybernEthics]. Even the titles allude to a context that has been present in all of your work: This topic is the indissoluble connection between epistemology and ethics. How can this connection be described? Or to put it more precisely, what epistemological position has what ethical consequence? This dialog is an excerpt from the recently published book: Understanding Systems. Conversations on Epistemology and Ethics by Heinz von Foerster and Bernhard Poerksen. Translation by Karen Leube. Heidelberg/New York: Carl-Auer-Systeme Verlag/Kluwer Academic Publication/Plenum Publishers. ISBN: 3–89670–234–3.
