The origin of humanness in the biology of love by Humberto R Maturana( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central concern of this book is us human beings. The authors' basic question is: 'How is it that we can live in mutual care, have ethical concerns, and at the same time deny all that through the rational justification of aggression?' The authors answer this basic question indirectly by providing a look into the fundaments of our biological constitution, concentrating on what they term emotioning, that is the flow of emotions in daily life that guides the flow of the systemic conservation
The tree of knowledge : the biological roots of human understanding by Humberto R Maturana( Book )

26 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text explores 'knowing how we know'. Its authors present a new view of cognition that has important social and ethical implications. They assert that the only world we humans can have is the one we create together through the actions of our coexistence
Autopoiesis and cognition : the realization of the living by Humberto R Maturana( Book )

25 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes a living system a living system? What kind of biological phenomenon is the phenomenon of cognition? These two questions have been frequently considered, but, in this volume, the authors consider them as concrete biological questions. Their analysis is bold and provocative, for the authors have constructed a systematic theoretical biology which attempts to define living systems not as objects of observation and description, nor even as interacting systems, but as self-contained unities whose only reference is to themselves. The consequence of their investigations and of their living systems as self-making, self-referring autonomous unities, is that they discovered that the two questions have a common answer: living systems are cognitive systems, and living as a process is a process of cognition. The result of their investigations is a completely new perspective of biological (human) phenomena. During the investigations, it was found that a complete linguistic description pertaining to the 'organization of the living' was lacking and, in fact, was hampering the reporting of results. Hence, the authors have coined the word 'autopoiesis' to replace the expression 'circular organization'. Autopoiesis conveys, by itself, the central feature of the organization of the living, which is autonomy
L'Arbre de la connaissance : racines biologiques de la compréhension humaine by Humberto R Maturana( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En plus d'être une introduction à la biologie de la cognition, ce livre offre tous les éléments d'une conception nouvelle des racines biologiques de la compréhension. Forts de nombreux exemples, les auteurs montrent que l'acte cognitif n'est pas le simple miroir d'une réalité objective externe, mais plutôt un processus actif, enraciné dans notre structure biologique. Ecrit à l'intention d'un large public aussi bien que pour les étudiants et les chercheurs. [SDM]

Monte Grande what is life? With Francisco Varela 1946-2001( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How is it possible for body and mind to exist as an integrated whole? The Chilean neurobiologist Francisco Varela devoted his entire life - from childhood to death to answering this question, and building bridges between western science and eastern wisdom, neurobiology and philosophy, abstract theory and practical life. The films structure approximates the non-linear thinking Varela emphasized, focused on autopoiesis, ethics, consciousness, meditation, and dying. Three key concepts shape the film: the relationship between body and mind (embodiment), the meaning of self-responsibility (autonomy) and spirituality. The film also includes narrative accounts and reflections from Varela himself, his family, professional colleagues, leading scientists, and friends."

Amor y juego : fundamentos olvidados de lo humano desde el patriarcado a la democracia by Humberto R Maturana( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in Spanish and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En este libro, escrito originalmente en 1990, Humberto Maturana Romesín señala que la existencia humana, como la existencia de cualquier organismo, ocurre en el espacio relacional como un modo de vivir y convivir que se conserva de generación en generación de manera biológico/cultural. Esto quiere decir, en nuestro caso, que, aunque desde el punto de vista biológico nuestra identidad animal es Homo sapiens, en nuestra existencia humana nuestra identidad es relacional y ocurre en el espacio que surge con otros en nuestro convivir en el lenguajear, y existimos como serres que generan los mundos que viven como espacios culturales o redes de conversaciones en el entrelazamiento de coordinaciones de haceres y emociones. Una cultura, dice Humberto Maturana Romesín, es una red cerrada de conversaciones que constituye un modo de convivir definido en cada caso como una configuración particular de entrelazamiento del lenguajear y el emocionear. Es desde aquí que el cambio cultural -para él- ocur
