ToK’s more gentle approach along with post-reading conversations with a Chilean economist and Italian physicist helped clear up a question I had after Autopoiesis and Cognition: There are a few things I didn’t like about it, though.

I highly recommend reading ToK before Autopoiesis and Cognition and possibly even foregoing Conhceimento and Cognition altogether. Our brains quite literally are unable to perceive or rather, should I say ‘produce’?

However, the hand is only withdrawn as a result of the neuronal system re-establishing equilibrium. The world we perceive and think about cannot be any other than the one we put forth through our own cognition.

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 contexts and love is the guiding force of the phenomenon.


Humberto Maturana is a Chilean biologist. Jun 28, Abailart rated it liked it. This is the book that inspired me to give up fighting what Conhefimento saw as mainstream unenlightened biological determinism in psychology, and enrol as a mature age student in psychology while a single parent of four.

Dec 11, Darin Stevenson rated it it was amazing Shelves: We indicate this process when we call the organizations that defines them an autopoietic organization. Trivia About Tree of Knowledge. A nervous system expands our possible behaviors by inserting a network with a huge range of possible patterns between our sensory and motor surfaces.

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.

But please, do read this. This condition gives rise to possibilities of interaction, that in many lineages give rise to behaviour, and in some language, and in currently one circumstance knowledge of the actions the organism is doing as well as much action that is structural and uncontrolled by the consciousness- especially our cellular goings on that give rise to that ability to know.
