|Abstract||Contemporary approaches to the science of communication and control show some striking conceptual parallels with traditional aristotelian-Thomistic thought and suggest the major themes treated in this study: (a) the intellectual validity and necessity of non-Empirical models of the universe, (b) the clarification of traditional concepts of "form" and "in-Form-Ation" brought by communications theory, (c) the relation of form to the sensible and intelligible "species", (d) possible modes of persistence of the individual human "psyche" as an integral information pattern unified in a systemic whole by the "selfness" manifest in human consciousness. The concepts of "system" and "information" are employed to analyze formal hierarchical relations and evolutionary processes in terms of structural and functional complexity, Perception, Self-Regulation, And consciousness|
