It therefore needs to cover a lot of ground before arriving at the good parts. His ultimate message is that human beings are biologically programmed for love, and that love and relationship in language is what makes us human. We indicate this process when we call that organization that defines them an autopoietic organization. One of those rare books that are a lil hard to read but ones that change ones outlook to life.

Francisco Varela – Citazioni di Google Scholar

I guess it goes to show that armchair-ing does have its uses too. Tree of Knowledge by Humberto R. 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 situation is very different from what we usually find, where the phenomenon of explaining and the phenomenon explained belong to different domains. 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 as, most notably recently, systems theory, complexity and cognitive science.

The environment does not instruct an organism; it only triggers internal dynamics. The two biologists go well beyond their original disciplines, delving into philosophy, spirituality and psychology, as examples of overlapping domains in this such essential but overlooked perhaps due to its complexity concept of cognition. 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.


To phrase it differently, the space of possible reactions to an environment is defined in the internal structure of an organism; the environment does not inject behavioral commands into an organism in any way.

Heredity and variation are strongly complementary features. Adaptation in response to a single change in the environment affects the organism in a global way.

Written for a general audience as well as for students, scholars, and scientists and abundantly illustrated with examples from biology, linguistics, and new social and cultural phenomena, this revised edition includes a new afterword by Dr.

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.

The theory is built from scratch to explain the natural emergence of these phenomena in biological systems, and it leads us to beautifully conclusion that the mind is shared, it emerges in social arvoree and love is the guiding force of the phenomenon.

Apr 02, Mahipal Lunia rated it it was amazing. The nervous system, therefore, by its very architecture does not violate but enriches the operational closure that defines the autonomous nature of the living being.

It read like various sources combined and I certainly do not recommend it. 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.

The simplest neural systems allow detection of correlations between inputs on a sensory surface. Avrela please, do read this. Recommended to zynphull by: Mar 03, Moana Avvenenti rated it liked it.

Aus heutiger Sicht ist die “neue” Denkweise eventuell nicht ganz so neu. Apr 28, Joe Raimondo rated it it was amazing. Make a label for your bookshelf: It is highly accessible, requires no prior understanding of its subjects beyond basic high school biologyand will enable you, if you give yourself into it, to become someone new – or, rather, to be more aware of what you are, and what you are not.

From that starting point we moved on to cellular autopoiesis, the organization of metacellulars and their behavioral domains, the operational closure of the nervous system, the linguistic domains, and language.


Understanding this, you lose the passion for changing the other. The authors present a unified theory of cognition and concept formation, that can be extended to explain knowledge, knowing, social interactions. conhecimemto

There are a few things I didn’t like about it, though. Jul 15, James rated it did not like it. Mar 03, Nick rated it it was amazing Shelves: Environmental input is imply one more “voice” in the “conversation” of internal dynamics. Elementary nervous system — sensory surface, motor surface, system of coordination between surfaces i. The main takeaway of this view, for myself, lies in short in its ability to present incredible insights into human cognition and arvofe while making it clear how they are absolutely incompatible with traditional notions of ‘objectivity vs.

Tree of Knowledge

Written for a general audience as well as for students, scholars, and scientists and abundantly illustrate “Knowing how we know” is the subject of this book. Jan 04, Oliver Hodson rated it it was amazing. Return to Book Page. Hence, the only possibility for coexistence is to opt for a marurana perspective, a domain of existence in which both parties fit in the bringing forth of a common world. I’ve read that and am working through the book which, as well as anything else, is a useful primer for a layperson on cell formation, reproduction, evolutionary ‘drift’ and this will form the basis of a progression to more human behavioural and sociolinguistic phenomena with this biological base.

Our minds, ideas, and life on Earth are explicit examples of such systems.

Jan 05, David Sousa d it it was amazing Shelves: The basic concept is autopoiesis, “Our proposition is that living beings are characterized in that, literally, they continually self-producing.
