Mar 03, Moana Avvenenti rated it liked it. Nov 24, Antonio marked it as to-read. The authors present a unified theory of cognition and concept formation, that can be extended to explain knowledge, knowing, social interactions.

A unity entity, object is brought forth by an act of distinction.

Epistemologia Biológica de Humberto Maturana – A Árvore do Conhecimento by Sérgio Roth on Prezi

Through existing we “put forth a world” that is a result not of direct contact with “objective external realit This is the best book I’ve read probably since I began to read. The rest of this review is a summary of the deep and profound wisdom I gleaned from the Chileans, so you may want to skip it if you haven’t read the book yet.

Uribe, is particularly known for creating the term “autopoiesis” about the self-generating, self-maintaining structure in living systems, and con Humberto Maturana is a Chilean biologist. This characterizes them as autonomous systems. Other people who don’t have previous experience with biology and sociology might enjoy it, but still I would have liked to see more addressing of higher logical types in these sections. On a lighter note, it’s funny to see orthodox scientist having their minds blown by stuff philosophers have been talking about since Hume, like the fact that conscience is not, by any means, a unified whole, but rather a “bundle of perceptions” made coherent by self-regulating mechanisms.


It can never be solved in the domain where it takes place if the disputants are ‘certain. I find it amazing how the authors are able to fit so many different topics into a meaningful cascade of concepts and theories that fits perfectly to their main conclusions, of cognitive processes as circular biological, social and linguistic phenomena inherent of living beings.

Structural dynamics allow observation, from which predictions can be made — those predictions can be limited by 1. A small change avore structure may occur to accommodate one new feature of the environment, but through an internal domino effect, alter the way an organism interacts with other features.

Replication repeated maturan is ahistorical. Our brains quite literally are unable to perceive or rather, should I say ‘produce’? Through existing we “put forth a world” that is a result not of direct contact with “objective external reality” thus not a representational mind nor a fantasy of our imagination thus not a solipsistic dreamland.

For me the good parts constitute the last two chapters and the afterword.

Then on page 48, “We are proposing that the mechanism that makes living beings autonomous systems is autopoiesis. Complexity in inherent of living arvpre, how simple unicelular being evolved to more complex ones and how the nervous system works. Ich habe das Buch gelesen, weil es viel zitiert wurde.

We indicate this process when we call the organizations that defines them an autopoietic organization. Organisms must exhibit variance of the time scale of their environment and in a complementary “direction” in order to adapt remain coupled.

Refresh and try again. Good introduction to System theory, though, autopoiesis for the win It never ceases to amaze me how stupid some of the acronyms we use are. This book is cited in many other arvkre and should be read by everyone looking for a better understanding of biology basics. I am not saying this justifies anything of my faith which I really don’t know how to justify but it does sit well.


Understanding this, you lose the passion for changing the other.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Amazing book on the building of complexity in biological beings. Varela, in which he discusses the effect the book has had in the years since its first publication.

Ob Peter Druckers “Communication is what the listener does” auch ihre Wurzeln hier hat? Another big idea here is the idea that adaptation is a conserved feature of living things.

Other people who don’t have previous experience with biology and sociology might enjoy it, but still I would have li An interesting book as it presupposes almost no knowledge and tries to explain a theory of cognition rooted in biology.

So they have this passion and you do not. Recommended to zynphull by: Referring to a unity implies an act of distinction.
