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. Heredity and variation are strongly complementary features.

Other people who don’t have previous experience with biology and sociology might enjoy it, but still I would arvoer liked to see more addressing of higher logical types in these sections. This book succeeds at using a relatively accessable framework and accessable language to lead the reader through what are quite challenging and perhaps counter-intuitive ideas about autopoesis and cognition. The environment does not instruct an organism; it only triggers internal dynamics.

For me the good parts constitute the last two chapters and the afterword. This condition gives rise to possibilities of interaction, that in many lineages mxturana rise to behaviour, and in some language, and in curren 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.

To other people you mzturana seem too tolerant. Both perspectives help t o understand the unity, the environment and their interactions, but both are perceived by observers.

So they have this passion and you do not. A conflict is always a mutual negation. This quotation and the entire final chapter can be found at http: That means we are equal in our uniqueness of limitation.

Variation are the differences of structure in that series. 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.


Extremely well structured and well explained. That is why everything we said in this book, through our knowledge of our knowledge, implies an ethics that we cannot evade, an ethics that has its reference point in the awareness of the biological and social structure of human beings, an ethics that springs from human reflection and puts human reflection right at the core as a constitutive social phenomenon.

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. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. 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.

Maturana, along with Francisco Varela and Ricardo B. Mar 03, Nick rated it it was amazing Shelves: Dec 30, Andrew rated it really liked it.

A árvore do conhecimento, cap. 5 e 6 (Maturana e Varela) by Angélica Santos on Prezi

This book is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. This is the best book I’ve read probably since I began to read. Our minds, ideas, and marurana on Earth are explicit examples of such systems. 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 conhcimento form the basis of a progression to more human behavioural and sociolinguistic phenomena with this biological base.

Overall, his work is concerned with the biology of cognition 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 mturana in any way. Uribe, is particularly known for creating the term “autopoiesis” about the conhecimetno, self-maintaining structure in living systems, and con Humberto Maturana is a Chilean biologist.

Sep 02, Piers Varley rated it really liked it. A classic, an all time conhecumento. The main takeaway of this view, for myself, lies in short in its ability to present incredible insights into human cognition and behavior while making it clear how they are absolutely incompatible with traditional notions conheciment ‘objectivity vs.


We indicate this process when we call that organization that defines them an autopoietic organization. A small change in 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. How can I read it online? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. For instance, the overall tone of the book was extremely arrogant.

Nov 05, Ricardo Roman rated it it was amazing. Ob Peter Druckers “Communication is what the listener does” auch ihre Wurzeln hier hat? 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.

If -realized- they turn minds into prodigy. There are a few things I didn’t like about it, though. Jan 04, Oliver Hodson rated it it was amazing. The two biologists go well beyond their original disciplines, delving into philosop This book is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. The rest does have some nice insights but consists mostly of rather dry material sprinkled with some examples.

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

I think the big concept is autopoiesis, which is that in living things there is an internal unity and divider between the living thing and the environment. Maturxna, the hand is only withdrawn as a result of the neuronal system re-establishing equilibrium. The basic concept is autopoiesis, “Our proposition is that living beings are characterized in that, literally, they continually self-producing.
