Francisco Varela – Cytowania w Google Scholar

A mixture of dated scientific ideas, profound frameworks for thinking about living organisms, and unnecessarily complicated jargon, ToK is essentially the children’s menu version of Maturana and Varela’s Autopoiesis and Cognition papers on living organisms, communication, and consciousness.

Referring to a unity implies an act of distinction. The ” Tree of Knowledge” offers a strong and coherent theory about how simple principles of life eventually generate cognition and ultimately the conscious process of “knowing how we know”. The external pain is a trigger only. This quotation and the entire final chapter can be found at http: On a lighter note, it’s funny to see orthodox scientist having their minds blown by stuff philosophers have been talking about since Hume, like the fact that conscience is not, by any means, a unified whole, but rather a “bundle of perceptions” made coherent by self-regulating mechanisms.

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.


Its authors present a new view of cognition that has important social and ethical implications, for, they assert, the only world we humans can have is the one we create together through the actions of our coexistence. All in all, a book that’s almost quite completely entirely unlike a something that is superficially similar to a masterpiece.

We experience reality as autonomous unities in “structural coupling” with the environment which, for each of us, include other beings as well.

The result will be a history of mutual congruent changes as long as the autopoietic unity and its containing environment do not disintegrate: I know that may seem like a petty complaint, given ravore nature of the book, but this is major leagues conceit we are talking about.

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

As regards its continuous interactions with the environment, the cell unity classifies them and sees them in accordance with its structure at every instant. It can never be solved in the domain where it takes place if the disputants are ‘certain. Conhecimetno can be easily demonstrated.

As it is, the book comes across as an armchair philosopher’s qrvore flamboyant attempt to reform science, which is weird, because I know the author is a fairly renowned scientist, who has published a decent number of pretty relevant empirically-based books such as “The Biology of Cognition”. One of those rare books that are a lil hard to read but ones that change ones outlook to life.

This book is most likely going to totally change your perspective on what it means to know. arbore

I’m going to bring my cabbages to someone who understands my needs. This describes an entirely new direction in understanding living symmetries and relational hypersystems. Adaptation in response to a single change in the environment affects the organism in a global way. Our experience, however, is one of creative freedom; and in the way we see things, the behavior of higher animals seems unpredictable.
