I like reading these technical books but I can never quite hang on to enough of the wow moments and ‘penny drops’ to keep it in my consciousness or communicate it to others properly but I’ll give it a go. We indicate this process when we call that organization that defines them an autopoietic organization.

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. Conversely, each time we refer to a unity in our descriptions, we are implying the operation of distinction that defines it and makes it possible.

I’d have been cool with it if he had had the results and methods to back it up like Newton did, only he wasn’t such a dick about itbut he didn’t. 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.

Then on page 48, “We are proposing that the mechanism that makes living beings autonomous systems is autopoiesis. Maturana, along with Francisco Varela and Ricardo B. Open Preview See a Problem? To other people you may seem too tolerant. A classic, an all time favorite.

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. May 17, David rated it it was amazing Shelves: Not a Thing, is for Certain! Reproduction the fracture of a unity to create two unities of the same classhowever, is necessarily historical.

Astonishing, and requires a few readings over years to get the ideas clearly. I guess it goes to show that armchair-ing does have its uses too.


Aus heutiger Sicht ist die “neue” Denkweise eventuell nicht ganz so neu. See 1 question about Tree of Knowledge…. The overall result is that the ontogenetic transformation of a unity ceases only with its disintegration.

Both perspectives help t o understand the unity, the environment and their interactions, but conhefimento are perceived by observers.

However, the hand is only withdrawn as a result of the neuronal system re-establishing equilibrium. I like how this places competition and ‘selection’ which the book also teases out nicely in a broader context, and makes adaptation, rather than competition, the compelling feature of life. We began with the features of our experience common to our shared social life. Mar 03, Moana Avvenenti rated it liked it. It compels us to adopt an attitude of permanent vigilance against the temptation of certainty.

As regards its continuous interactions with the environment, the cell unity classifies them and sees them in accordance with its structure at every instant.

Our experience, however, is one of creative freedom; and in the way we see things, the behavior of higher animals seems unpredictable. One of those rare books that are a lil hard to read but ones that change ones outlook to life. Paperbackpages.

Return to Book Page. Und sowieso muss ein Buch mit Bilder von Escher gut sein 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. Uribe, is particularly known for creating the term “autopoiesis” about the self-generating, self-maintaining structure in living systems, and concepts such as structural determinism and structure coupling.

That means we are equal in our uniqueness of limitation. I know that may seem like a petty complaint, given the nature of the book, but this is major leagues conceit we are talking about.

The simplest neural systems allow detection of conheximento between inputs on a sensory surface. We indicate this process when we call the organizations that defines them an autopoietic organization.

Thus, the world a 21st century American woman perceives and lives in, though ‘objectively’ the same, is connhecimento with values, notions or lack thereof of right, wrong, old, new, roles, goals, that are for the most part wildly different than the ones through which, say, a native Mongolian in the 15th century perceived.


This book is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. The environment does not instruct an organism; it only triggers internal dynamics. On one side there is a trap: 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 on the physical nature of their components which only determine the space of their existence.

Replication repeated generation is ahistorical.

We begin to see clearly the ways in which every process of cognition is necessarily based on the operational closure of its nervous system; hence it follows that all knowing is doing as sensory-effector correlations in the realm of structural coupling in which the nervous system exists.

Amazing book on the building of complexity in biological beings. We experience reality as autonomous unities in “structural coupling” with the environment which, for each of us, include other beings as aevore.

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 arvoer tries to explain a theory of cognition rooted in biology. Unities may couple via inclusion think organelles or recurrent coupling with the maintenance of individual identities individual humans.
