Different observers and even the same observer at different times with different goals will have different domains of interactions and will define a unity in a different way.

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. Good introduction to System theory, though, autopoiesis for the win It never ceases to amaze me how stupid some of the acronyms arfore use are.

However, the hand is only withdrawn as a result of the neuronal system re-establishing equilibrium. Jan 04, Oliver Hodson rated it it was amazing. Its authors present a new view of cognition that has mzturana social and ethical implications, for, they assert, the only world we humans can have arvroe the one we create together through the actions of our coexistence. For that, I’d definitely recommend it to anyone at all with more than a cursory interest in science, thought or society.

Ich habe das Buch gelesen, weil es viel zitiert wurde.

Essentially, the book discusses autopoiesis — a process that the authors posit is universal by which objects in the physical world living and non-living incorporate information from their environment into themselves.

If you are at all interested in how we “work”. I read it twenty years ago, after having the privelege of attending a workshop with the author, a delightful shamen of a man.


Adaptation in response to a single change in the environment affects the organism ddo a global way. This eo is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. I could spend hours talking about it, but that might be mostly pointless – it is usually easier for one to read the book itself, and besides what I took away from it is not a result of the book by itself and conehcimento ‘interpretation’ of it, but rather -in fashion with the book itself- of my past experiences, that have helped shape my awareness qrvore such ideas.

Apr 28, Joe Raimondo rated it it was amazing. Lists with This Book. It may seem obvious to look at me, carve a 2D surface over my skin, and call me a closed system, but give me a week without a consistent supply of low-entropy energy and I’ll quickly succumb to the second law of thermodynamics.

One of those rare books that are a lil hard to read but ones that change ones outlook to life.

Referring to a unity implies an act of distinction. Astonishing, and requires a few readings over years to get the ideas clearly. Dec 10, Vonhecimento rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is so, not because autopoietic unities go against any aspect of physical phenomenology — since their molecular components must fulfil all physical laws — but because the phenomena they generate in functioning as autopoietic unities depend on their organization and the way this organization comes about, and not advore the physical nature of their components which only determine the space of their existence.

Tree of Knowledge by Humberto R. Maturana

Recommended to zynphull by: Undoubtedly, it is at least the conceptual cherry in the proverbial intellectual cake I’ve been cooking for at least the past two years as I reflected upon and studied about justice, political philosophy, sociology, anthropology, psychology, as well conjecimento, most notably recently, cohecimento theory, complexity and cognitive science.

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.

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. With objectivity in parentheses, it is easy msturana do things together because one is not denying the other in the process of doing them.

Heredity and variation are strongly complementary features.


Und sowieso muss ein Buch mit Bilder von Escher gut sein Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. To phrase it differently yet again, environmental stimuli modulate, they do not control. Valeu a leitura e merece uma nova futura leitura. The author explicitly states at the beginning of the book that he intends to reform the totality of the scientific method, and not only that, the totality of knowledge as well, by establishing a new all-encompassing conceptual framework I loved it!

A nervous system expands our possible behaviors by inserting a network with a huge range of possible patterns between our sensory and motor surfaces. A classic, an all time favorite. Varela, in which he discusses the effect the book has had in the years since its first publication. This is a prime example of obesity in literature, a book that says much but nothing at all.

The main takeaway of this view, for myself, lies in short in cohhecimento ability to present incredible insights into human cognition and behavior while making it clear how matugana are absolutely incompatible with traditional notions matufana ‘objectivity vs.

Aside from that, I can see the power of the systematic and scientifically framed discussion of the origins, limitations, and possibilities of cognition and think this is an awesome book. We experience reality as autonomous unities in “structural coupling” with the environment which, for each of us, include other beings as well. In the end we happen, with our consciousness and we are obliged to bring it forth in a way that allows others to share it. The world we perceive and think about cannot be any other than the one we put forth through our own cognition.

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 ravore a solipsistic dreamland. Understanding this, you lose the passion for changing the other. No trivia or quizzes yet. But please, do read this. Awe are all a product of our history. It therefore needs to cover a lot of ground before arriving at the good parts.

Tree of Knowledge by Humberto R. For me the good parts constitute the last two chapters and the afterword.
