Herbert Simon understood the computer, the organization, and the individual mind as being "species of the genus information processor." By defining the computer in this way—in a new understanding of mind and machine—Simon hoped to provide answers to the problems of choice and control in complex systems. Part 1 discusses Simon's work before he came to computing. Part 2 covers Simon's early work in computer science.
