He graduated from the University of California Berkeley with honors in mathematics and undertook postgraduate studies in at the universities of Munich, Heidelberg, Copenhagen and Lund where he obtained a PhD in in cultural epistemology In all the fields in which Professor Maruyama has worked, his central interest has been in the heterogeneity of individual perceptual, cognitive, cogitative and epistemological patterns. This was motivated by some practical problems: a While some individuals understood him immediately, many others did not, no matter how hard he tried to communicate. A specific example for a is the following: When his article article "The second cybernetics" American Scientist was published readers immediately understood its quantitative side, i.

Pierrette Duriez April 5, Magoroh was my first husband. He introduced me to a variety of new experiences, music, food, travel. We spoke French at home. When his mother came to visit, she and I would try our broken English, Magoroh and his mother would speak Japanese and, of course, he and I in French. It made dinner conversation hilarious. We started corresponding a few years later. His novel ideas on a wide area of subject matters impressed me greatly and after some time his writings started to influence my whole life.
I will always be immensely grateful to him for opening so many doors to creative thinking and to the profundity of interactive heterogenistics that he explained so well in many of his articles.
He was truly a great man that contributed to many areas of science. John Gammack March 26, I first met Professor Maruyama in Budapest in and was inspired by his work and his being. We corresponded for some time after that and he always sent me interesting letters and reprints. Today I was referring his work to a colleague and when searching online was sad to discover he had recently passed.
He was an inspiration to many others too. My condolences to his loved ones.
