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. Written for a general audience as well as for students, scholars, and scientists and abundantly illustrated with examples from biology, linguistics, and new social and cultural phenomena, this revised edition includes a new afterword by Dr. Varela, in which he discusses the effect the book has had in the years since its first publication.

Varela of Autopoiesis and Cognition: The Realization of the Living. Compartilhe seus pensamentos com outros clientes. Giving five stars I underrate the book enormously.

I have bought the book some ten years ago, and once of twice a year I pick it up and study it again. Why is it that I write that it is a seminal book? Here arvoer have the most important mistakes one can make – there mautrana smaller ones! To be sure, it takes them a while to get at their key point, but the detours are necessary to understand the outcome. And because we are with others we bring forth a world together.

You can say that each person imagines his world to be, or into being, but always with this aim: And in doing so he is learning, and so living is learning and learning is living. Much of this is done in language, the most versatile tool we humans have, which makes possible to make discriptions and descriptions of description et cetera, and in the end gives rise to self-consciousness.

That is, to understand yourself. But the idea that the outside world is objective and inside us is a representation of it, varelaa derive knowledge from, is utterly destroyed after reading the book, and rightly so. The theory set me on the path of the development of a conflict theory that in essence states that conflict is never about some seeming conflict between people, but always about two or more people acting out their own problems with the conservation of adaptation and maintenance of coupling, which is in normal language that we have to master our human deficiencies.

I give an example: He gets jealous and he thinks she is deceiving him, but in reality he does not know. He only thinks that she is deceiving him and acting upon that thought alone will bring havock upon them both. The matter is that he is jealous because he has not learned yet not to become jealous.


But how can he solve his real problem aa another way than look inside into his own mind in self-consciousness and ask himself why he got jealous? Because there is the root of the conflict. Here in a nutshell the theory of autopoiesis is explained. Thinking dat what you see in an outside world is anything else than the productions or distortions of your own mind is self-deceiving. This looks very Buddhist as is taught in Dzogchen and no wonder that Varela was one of the initiators of the Mind Life Institute of the Dalai Arvorre and also a Buddhist himself.

One other point where the theory is at first sight conclusive is on language.

Reading the book you will understand that when you say a sentence your listener will hear sounds that through the coordination in a shared domain will enable him to create arcore from the heard sounds, but not further or more that he has learned to do untill that very moment. If you spoke Chinese and he has nor learned the language he will not be able to create anything out of it.

This and some other points make sure that you understand that a person, and that means you too, is not able to act or react outside of the domain of what he has learned already. And that all perturbations impulses invite me and you to expand the range of actions, of which, when we succeed, can be said of that we have learned.

I have given these examples to give you the taste of the enormous impact that the book will have, when you have really understood its contents. You will never be the same, and it will be impossible to get back to your old ways of looking. Real knowledge cannot be unlearned! So, buy the book and become a different person. You will have the same troubles, but you then will have learned to learn much faster. Jan Willem van Ee The Netherlands. I came to this book years ago through, of all things, a two-year course in business and sales, for which it was required reading along with “Computers and Cognition”, another eye-opener; the latter anticipated the current transactional nature of the Internet.

You might ask how a work as theoretical and speculative as “Tree of Knowledge” could be part of a pragmatic and hardnosed business course, and that is one key to its attraction for me: The authors drill down to molecular biology and then carefully build upward their premise that we construct the worlds we live in out of language.

Each of us exists inside a story we tell ourselves about the way the world is, and we are completely contained within that story. In that sense, we interact with other people through the way our stories talk to their stories.

And the success of our relationships and the effectiveness with which we act in our world is dependent on how well we can recognize the stories of others and understand the nature of our own story. This is good news, once we recognize it, because we are a narrative species. On my way to work in the morning, I am telling myself a story about the way I want my day to go: The story I tell myself about my life has heroes and villains, goals and challenges, grand themes and petty foibles.


The more we understand the soaring, rich, complex stories those around us are telling themselves, the more we can overcome misunderstandings, conflicts and cultural dissonance – the more, in a sense, we can construct a meta-story that serves us all as human beings. This is not a quick and simple read, but it is so logically and carefully laid out that I never felt lost along the journey.

It is a wonderful book to read in tandem with a friend, or as part of a book club. The discussion and the “aha! Part of the joy of “Tree of Knowledge” is its potential for promoting tolerance of those different from us, through recognition of what drives their story rather than through compromising our own values.

I read that in the authors’ native Chile it is even taught in high schools.

This, I believe, is good news: This book completely turned upside down my understanding of language and its importance for how humans operate, social structures, a highly unusual explanation of the “self” egohuman behavior, Ethics, social phenomena, and why computers can never replace human cognition. This book was assigned reading and study in a business and entrepreneurship program I participated to many years ago.

This is a book of transformation for anyone actively working to become a superior leader, innovator and successful businessperson. This is a “foundational” book as far as I can tell, it’s a book to study, not to read and critique — be advised of who wrote it prior to giving in to critique temptations.

I am not an expert in biology or neuroscience, but I am looking at the “meanings” of this gem of contribution to human civilization: I speculate Maturana’s and Varela’s lifetime work — distilled in this and other books — will be the foundation for the new emerging biology that future generations will come to learn and rely on for a better human condition.

This will be a new biology upon which new explanations of social phenomena will replace old and false ones we still currently follow blindly, unquestioned, and unexamined. I highly recommended this book for businesspeople, executives, social leaders, and entrepreneurs for acquiring a fundamental understanding of humans and social structures. If varels buying this book you’re looking for different knowledge.

Good luck – it was very difficult to understand. Qrvore you have someone walking you through it. Once you do, you might tend to have a LOT of ah-ha moments. Definitely takes discipline to read if you’re not of the scientific mindset. Formas de pagamento aceitas: Rastreie seus pedidos recentes.
