Autopoiesis and cognition : the realization of the living by Humberto R Maturana( Book )

12 editions published between 1972 and 1980 in English and held by 477 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
Erkennen: die Organisation und Verkörperung von Wirklichkeit : ausgewählte Arbeiten zur biologischen Epistemologie by Humberto R Maturana( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in German and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Mensch ist fähig zu erkennen. Diese Fähigkeit setzt allerdings seine bio logische Integrität (Ganzheit, Unversehrtheit) voraus. Der Mensch kann außerdem erkennen, daß er erkennt. Erkennen (Kognition) als basale psychologische und somit biologische Funktion steuert seine Handhabung der Welt, und Wissen gibt seinen Handlungen Sicherheit. Objektives Wissen scheint möglich, und die Welt erscheint dadurch planvoll und vorhersagbar. Und doch ist Wissen als Erfahrung etwas Persönliches und Privates, das nicht übertragen werden kann. Das, was man für übertragbar hält, nämlich objektives Wissen, muß immer durch den Hörer geschaffen werden: Der Hörer versteht nur dann, und objektives Wissen erscheint nur dann übertragbar, wenn der Hörer zu verstehen (vor)bereit(et) ist. Kognition als biologische Funktion besteht darin, daß sich die Antwort auf die Frage Was ist Kognition? aus dem Verständnis des Erkennens bzw. des Erkennenden aufgrund der Fähigkeit des letzteren zu erkennen ergeben muß. Eben darin besteht meme Arbeit. Epistemologie Der zentrale Anspruch der Wissenschaft ist Objektivität: sie [die Wissenschaft] ist bestrebt, mit Hilfe einer wohldefinierten Methodologie Aussagen über die Welt zu machen. Gerade in der Basis dieses Anspruches liegt jedoch ihre Schwäche: die apriorische Annahme, daß objektives Wissen eine Beschreibung dessen darstellt, was man weiß. Eine solche Annahme erfordert die Klärung der Fragen Worin be steht Erkennen bzw. Wissen? und Wie erkennen und wissen wir? Biologie a) Das größte Hindernis für das Verständnis der Organisation des Lebendigen liegt darin, daß es nicht möglich ist, sie durch eine Aufzählung ihrer Eigen schaften zu erklären. Sie muß vielmehr als Einheit verstanden werden

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 72 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]

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

8 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central concern of this book is us human beings. The authors' basic question is: 'How is it 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 in 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 of a manner of living. Maturana and Verden-Zöller claim that the fundamental emotion that gave rise to humans as sapient languaging beings was love, and that this remains our fundament even when other emotions become socially prevalent."--Back cover

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

3 editions published in 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 40 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 )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in Spanish and held by 38 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
