Abstract

This paper investigates the methodological foundations of a new research field called chance discovery, which aims to detect future opportunities and risks. By drawing on concepts from cybernetics and system theory, it is argued that chance discovery best applies to open systems that are equipped with regulatory and anticipatory mechanisms. Non-determinism, freedom (entropy) and open systems property are motivated as basic assumptions underlying chance discovery. The prediction-explanation asymmetry and evaluation of chance discovery models are discussed a fundamental problems of this field.
