Abstract : In his 1954 paper, Solvable and Unsolvable Problems, Turing repeats his fundamental result of 1936 which states the impossibility to find a universal method to solve all algorithmic problems. He exposes this result with an apparently simple and easy notion: puzzles and games. But what is really meant by "Puzzle" or "Game"? Is it a mere mathematical object or is there here a concept that can be related to the whole order of the world? Isn't Turing expressing also a vision in which he foresees the tremendous develop- ment of Cybernetics and its extension well beyond the frame of Science and Technique? Since the development of Cybernetics is now extending its initial frame, can't we see in this movement the deployment of a Game, of which, says Heraclitus, we would ourselves be the pawns?
