A Calculus for Autopoiesis

16 pages · 4.01 EUR
(June 2013)

I agree with the terms and conditions, especially point 10 (only private use, no transmission to third party) and accept that my order cannot be revoked.


The paper looks once more at the understanding and definition of autopoiesis as developed by Humberto R. Maturana, Francisco J. Varela, and Ricardo Uribe. We will focus on the question whether George Spencer- Brown’s Laws of Form presents us with a possibility of translating Maturana’s definition into a kind of a calculus. We look at Maturana’s emphasis on components, networks, and boundaries and try to figure out how this emphasis can translate into an understanding of form that knows about self-reference, paradox, and play.
