Our mentor - the father of cybernetics
" Stefan Odobleja could be considered not only a Socrateof our times, but also a second Columb, because he had the samedestiny:to discover the America of science and at the end this America got another name, not his." (I.C.Dragan)
Stefan Odobleja, the creator of psychocybernetics and the father of generalisedcybernetics was born on the 13'th of october 1902 in the house of some poor and illiterate peasants from Izvorul Anestilor - Mehedinti.He went to the high school in Drobeta Turnu Severin and to the college inBucharest. He became a military doctor.His most important creation "The consonantist psychology" was presented in
Psychological Abstracts (1941)
but it didn't receive the deserved echo.The cybernetic model, begining from obsevations, intuition and rationality,created by Odobleja in 1938-1939, but used (as we know) ten years later, in theamerican literature and then in the european one, was used and applied in manyscientific fields.Begining with 1972, when he read Norbert Wiener's autobiography, StefanOdobleja devoted his time to prove that the origin of cybernetics is in psychology. He published a special creation named "The consonantist psychology and cybernetics".
