Understanding this, you lose the passion for changing the other.

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.

Tree of Knowledge by Humberto R. Maturana

Along the way, we put together the building blocks of an explanatory system capable of showing how the phenomena proper to living beings arise. Mar 03, Conhecimwnto Avvenenti rated it liked it. I read it twenty years ago, after having the privelege of attending a workshop with the author, a delightful shamen of a man. A nervous system expands our possible behaviors by inserting a network with a huge range of possible patterns between our sensory and motor surfaces. A small change in structure may occur to accommodate one new feature of the environment, but through an internal domino effect, alter the way an organism interacts with other features.


It compels us because, when we know that we know, we cannot deny to ourselves or to others that we know. I’ve read that and am working through the book which, as well as anything else, is a useful primer for conheciemnto layperson on cell formation, reproduction, evolutionary ‘drift’ and this will form the basis of a progression to more human behavioural and sociolinguistic phenomena with this biological base.

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. Does nervous system limit predictions? This condition gives rise to possibilities of interaction, that in many lineages give rise to behaviour, and in some language, and in curren I like reading these technical books but I can never quite hang on to enough of the wow moments and ‘penny drops’ to keep it in my consciousness or communicate it to others properly but I’ll give it a go.

Another big idea here is the idea that adaptation is a conserved feature of living things. This situation is very different from what we usually find, where the phenomenon of explaining and the phenomenon explained belong to different domains. I like how this places competition and ‘selection’ which the book also teases out nicely in a broader context, and makes adaptation, rather than competition, the compelling feature of life.

Overall, his work is concerned with the biology of cognition As regards its continuous interactions with the environment, the cell unity classifies them and sees them in accordance with its structure at every instant. For example, a given university may be a set of assets and liabilities, a collection of students, a football team, a physical space, or some combination of these things, depending on who you ask. I guess it goes to show that armchair-ing does have its uses too.


It is highly accessible, requires no prior understanding of its subjects beyond basic high school biologyand will enable you, if you give yourself into it, to become someone new – or, rather, to be more aware of what you are, and what you are not.

Other people who don’t have previous experience with biology and sociology might enjoy it, but still I would have liked to see more addressing of higher logical types in d sections.

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 my definition pales. Nov 05, Ricardo Roman rated it it was amazing.

To other people you may seem too tolerant. Heredity is the preservation of structure in a historical series of unities. Aus heutiger Sicht ist die “neue” Denkweise eventuell nicht ganz so neu. Elementary nervous system — sensory surface, motor surface, system of coordination between surfaces i.

Where neurons meet neurons or other cells we find a synapse. One of the results is that you look apathetic to people. Dec 30, Andrew rated it really liked it. This describes an entirely new direction in understanding living symmetries and relational hypersystems.
