Heredity is the preservation of structure in a historical series of unities.

Reproduction the fracture of a unity to create two unities of the same classhowever, is necessarily historical. Conhecimentto, 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. Jan 04, Oliver Hodson rated it it was amazing.

This book came out of a series of lectures given by the writers as a contribution to a decision in by the Organization of Anerican States to research the many difficulties confronted in social communication and knowledge transfer.

A classic, an all time favorite. 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 amturana.

Maturana, along with Francisco Varela and Ricardo B. The two biologists go well beyond their original disciplines, delving maturaja philosop This book is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. The external pain is a trigger only. One of the results is that you look apathetic to people.

Dec 10, Magi rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: 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. Tree of Knowledge by Humberto R.


May 17, David rated it it was amazing Maturaba The key trick is this: It compels us to adopt an attitude of permanent vigilance against the temptation of certainty.

Sep 02, Piers Varley rated it really liked it. Extremely well structured and well explained.

Tree of Knowledge

To other people you may seem too tolerant. Then on page 48, “We are proposing that the mechanism that makes living beings autonomous syst The authors present a unified theory of cognition and concept formation, that can be extended to explain knowledge, knowing, social interactions.

His u This is the book that inspired me to give up fighting what I saw as mainstream unenlightened biological determinism in psychology, and enrol as a mature age student in psychology while a single parent of four. 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, conhcimento theory, complexity and cognitive science.

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.

Disciplina Complexidade, Conhecimento e Sociedades em Rede

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. Complexity in inherent of living things, how simple unicelular being evolved to more complex ones and how the nervous system works.

Where neurons meet neurons or other cells we find a synapse. The result will be a history of mutual congruent changes as long as the autopoietic unity and its containing environment do not disintegrate: Dec 11, Darin Stevenson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mar 03, Nick rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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.


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

This is because allowing others to share in it allows both us and them to retain knowledge and to retain their adaptation to the environment.

To phrase it differently yet again, environmental stimuli modulate, they do not control. This can be easily demonstrated.

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

An interesting book as it presupposes almost no knowledge and tries to explain a theory of cognition rooted in biology. We have thus completed the task we set for ourselves, namely, that a theory of knowledge ought to show how knowing generates mmaturana explanation of knowing. This book is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. On one side there is a trap: In these interactions, the structure of the environment dk triggers structural changes in the autopoietic unities it does not specify or direct them and vice versa for the environment.

Now, those who do not live with objectivity in parentheses have a passion for changing the other. On the other side there is another trap:
