Opportunity for Experts 2.0: an alternative for the #NewMacyMeeting

Like the story “Oportunidad para Expertos: Grandes Cambios, Circunstancias, Grados de Claridad y los Estados,” being responded here, but unlike multiple views on an issue that must be complete, the Macy Meetings, which are described in a Wikipedia webpage as the “Macy conferences ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macy_conferences ),” as work in progress:

… were a set of meetings of scholars from various disciplines held in New York under the direction of Frank Fremont-Smith at the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation starting in 1941 and ending in 1960. The explicit aim of the conferences was to promote meaningful communication across scientific disciplines,[1] and restore unity to science.[2]

Of course, “meaningful communication across scientific disciplines,” which is facilitated by the following article, were not fully available as “Peirce’s work was missing…:”

The Macy conferences webpage says that it “does not apply only to those on Cybernetics.” The section “Cybernetics Conferences,” of the webpage, which correspond to what is being call Macy Meetings, says that:

The Cybernetics conferences were held between 1946 and 1953, organized by the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation, motivated by Lawrence K. Frank and Frank Fremont-Smith of the Foundation.[13] As chair of this set of conferences, Warren McCulloch had responsibility to ensure that disciplinary boundaries were not unduly respected.[14][15] The Cybernetics were particularly complex as a result of bringing together the most diverse group of participants of any of the Macy conferences, so they were the most difficult to organize and maintain.[16

According to “Norbert Wiener 1894–1964,” by Pesi R. Masani — 2012, page 369:

America lost when it allowed its most profound and versatile philosopher — its first Leibniz — Charles Sanders Peirce to die unheard, while it settled for less iconoclastic but smaller minds {P1, p. xvii}. Peirce’s heir was luckier: the Massachusetts Institute of Technology gave Wiener a congenial workplace, and his contributions were appreciated. Even so, America will lose again if it lets the profound thought of this, its second Leibniz, go unattended, while it pursues the outpourings of lesser minds. Wiener, like Peirce before him, has illuminated a central problem of our age, “the humanizing of the Sciences and their increasing role in dealing with the moral and educational phases of our industrial age”, to use the words of Peirce’s editor…”

So far there are three tweets (tweets 15, 16 and 17) on what’s now a 20 tweets thread which has been reframed as a Request for Proposals (RFP) mentioned in Tweet 16. Tweets 10 and 19 are related to the role Norbert Winner played in the Macy Meetings that dealt with Cybernetics. They are converted next.
